The Oxford dictionary of quotations

"The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations is acclaimed for its broad and authoritative coverage. Now with 20,000 quotations, this major new edition has been brought fully up to date, whilst traditional areas of coverage have been enhanced. Particular areas such as world religions and classical Greek and Latin literature have been improved, and proverbs and nursery rhymes are also included. In addition, there are new sections bringing together Advertising slogans, Epitaphs, Film lines, Misquotations, and other special categories of topical and related quotes." "With a new thematic index, which allows you to browse through the best quotations on a given subject, more background information, an extensive keyword index, and cross-references to quotations about authors, you will easily be able to find quotations for all occasions, and identify who said what, where, and when.
