Based on the highly acclaimed sixth 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. Over 1900 new quotes have been added for this edition, as well as author descriptions, placing the quotes firmly in context. The dictionary has been compiled using a unique process: the quotes are identified by the largest ongoing language research programme in the world, Oxford English Corpus. This ensures that all the most popular and widely-used quotes are featured. An easy-to-use keyword index traces quotations and their authors, while the appendix material, including Catchphrases, Film Lines, Official Advice, and Political Slogans, offers further topics of interest. This is the most authoritative paperback dictionary of quotations available. Containing over 9,000 quotations from more than 2,500 authors, it is both a fascinating read, and an invaluable general reference tool. Below is a selection of quotes from the new edition: Integrity has no need of rules Albert Camus Where there is great love there are always miracles Willa Cather We have discovered the meaning of life! Francis Crick Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm R. W. Emerson Just trust yourself and learn the art of living Goethe In human relations, kindness and lies are worth a thousand truths Graham Greene The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws Tacitus
