9780199668700: Oxford Dictionary of Quotations 8e

excellent value ( Network review)

good browsing entertainment ( Times Literary Supplement, Michael Caines)

The misquotations section has helpfully grown since the millennium from thirty-four to fifty-seven entries. It is still possible to learn things from leafing through these pages ( Michael Caines, The Times Literary Supplement)

It can be browsed endlessly, with each quotation delivering something different. When I first looked at this edition I'd found three quotations which my husband had to know about by the time I got to the bottom of page two - and he agreed. ( Sue Magee, Book Bag)

Where else would you find over 20,000 quotations, covering centuries, every subject, with wit, wisdom and food for thought? ( Sue Magee, Book Bag)


'A glorious treasure-house for browsers' ( Times Literary Supplement)

'Every home should have a copy' ( Sunday Telegraph)

'Invaluable' ( The Times)

'Still the best' ( The Independent)

'I could re-read it over and over again and never grow bored, for its pages contain all the insight of a library' ( Daily Mail)

Magnificent volume. ( Ferdinand Mount, Standpoint)

It is a book which can be explored pretty well indefinitely, and one which yields fresh satisfaction and surprises. ( John Gross, Spectator)

Buchbeschreibung Oxford University Press Sep 2014, 2014. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 246x182x66 mm. Neuware - The first edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations was published in 1941 and for over 70 years this bestselling book has remained unrivalled in its coverage of quotations past and present. The eighth edition is a vast treasury of wit and wisdom spanning the centuries and providing the ultimate answer to the question, 'Who said that ' Find that half-remembered line in a browser's paradise of over 20,000 quotations, comprehensively indexed for ready reference. Lord Byron may have taken the view: 'I think it great affectation not to quote oneself', but for the less self-centred the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations provides a quote for every occasion from the greatest minds of history and from undistinguished characters known only for one happy line. Drawing on Oxford's unrivalled dictionary research programme and unique language monitoring, over 700 new quotations have been added to this eighth edition from authors ranging from St Joan of Arc and Coco Chanel to Albrecht Dürer and Thomas Jefferson. New sayings from across the ages include 'It would not be better if things happened to men just as they wish' (the classical writer Heraclitus), 'Fight on, and God will give the Victory' (the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison), and 'The future is already here-it's just not evenly distributed' (the writer William Gibson). 1126 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780199668700
