With more than 20,000 entries attributed to people ranging from Socrates to Yogi Berra, Einstein to Erma Bombeck, philosophers to comedians, world leaders to sports figures, literary luminaries to common folk, Webster's New World Dictionary of Quotations has classics plus gems most people haven't heard before.

Speakers and writers will find the perfect quotations to:

  • Add pizazz to a speech
  • Punch up a toast
  • Add panache to writing
  • Strengthen arguments
  • Make an idea more credible and memorable
  • Liven up conversations
