9780064953689: Quotations in History: A Dictionary of Historical Quotations C. 800 A.d. to the Present

Published collections of quotations traditionally fulfill three functions. They enable us to verify the form of half-remembered phrases; they give us the opportunity to enrich our spoken and written words from "the wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages"; and they provide us with the delights of author browsing without even having to reach for another volume , so that we may turn the pages of a single book and --with Montaigne-- contentedly scent "a nosegay of other people's flowers." Each of these functions was in our minds as we were compiling "Quotations in History". We hope that the book will be a source both of reference and pleasure to those who dip into it.
