Oxford Quotations by Subject is a collection of over 7,000 quotations, arranged thematically for easy look-up. Covering an enormous range of nearly 600 themes, there is every subject you can think of, from the more traditional topics of Courage or Parliament, to topical themes such as The Internet or Genetic Engineering. The quotations that stand together in each particular theme range from the very old to the modern: both Horace and Maeve Binchy comment on the theme The Present, while Desmond Morris and Jeremy Bentham give their views in the category on Animal Rights. A useful author index (including descriptions and context lines) gives quick and easy access to what is in the dictionary and provides information on each author. For anyone needing to find quotable gems on a wide variety of topics, the Oxfprd Dictionary of Quotations by Subject is an impressive and highly useable source.
