Book Description

A DICTIONARY OF QUOTATIONS MUST

Its owner must be able to find, with

the aid of the index, the speaker or

writer responsible for a phrase that has stuck - or half-stuck - in his head, or for a reference found during his reading. His dictionary must guide him to the context, giving him, where possible, line and page

references to some easily available edition. By use of the index too, he must be able to see what has been said on a particular subject by a variety of men; to turn up such

key-words as God, life, love, money, peace, war, word, and world is to discover a babel of opinions, with one or more of which he may care to embellish his own writing or conversation at the proper moment. Direct use of the first section, moreover, arranged under alphabetical order of authors, will

give him some of the outstanding statements made by the great, or by the not-so-great who have for some reason beep-remembered.
