The Penguin Thesaurus of Quotations is a treasury of memorable lines plundering the wit and wisdom of the world from the Bible to the Internet. M. J. Cohen has gathered over 12,000 quotations, arranging them under 800 themes, from Age to Youth, Advice to Worry, and Martyrs to Millionaires. The quotations are listed alphabetically by author under each theme. Thus Dolly Parton rubs shoulders with Marcel Proust on the theme of Body Parts, Aesop with Baden-Powell on Anticipation, and Groucho Marx with Moliere on Doctors and Nurses. The result is not only a browser's paradise but also an indispensable reference tool for those who want to make a speech, prepare a sermon, write a letter or solve a crossword. For entertainment, for inspiration, for settling arguments, or for browsing, The Penguin Thesaurus of Quotations is a must for every home and office.
