Based on the highly acclaimed seventh edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, this new edition maintains its extensive coverage of literary and historical quotations, and contains completely up-to-date material from today's influential literary and cultural figures. It is the only dictionary of quotations which ensures coverage of the most popular and widely-used quotations by searching the largest ongoing language research programme in the world, the Oxford English Corpus. Over 1,000 new quotes have been added for this edition, and categories such as Catchphrases, Film Lines, Official Advice, and Political Slogans are included. An easy-to-use keyword index traces quotations and their authors. This is the most authoritative paperback dictionary of quotations available. Containing over 9,000 quotations from more than 2,300 authors, it is both a fascinating read, and an invaluable general reference tool. Quotations new to this edition include: 'The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.' Aristotle 'Imagination is the highest kite that can fly.' Lauren Bacall 'You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.' William Blake 'Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.' Marie Curie 'Between grief and nothing I will take grief.' William Faulkner 'We must be the change we wish to see in the world.' Mahatma Gandhi 'Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.' Jung 'Failure is not an option.' Gene Kranz 'To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme.' Herman Melville 'Nothing is so firmly believed as that which we least know.' Montaigne
