Description

The Bloomsbury "Anthology of Quotations" contains over 12,000 quotations, reflecting a more international and more eclectic range of sources than any comparable volume. Quotations are taken from cultures as far apart as ancient China, Renaissance Europe and contemporary South Africa, and from sources as diverse as Charles Dickens, Steven Spielberg, Lord Byron, Umberto Eco, Samuel Johnson, Jeanette Winterson, Confucius, The Simpsons, Karl Marx, Bill Bryson and Stephen Hawking. The book is divided into over 700 vibrant themes, ranging from Popular Music to Frieedom, the Middle East to Women, and from Philosophy to the Internet. It provides quotations for every need - Emotion, Political Insults, Therapy, Storytelling, Love, Theatre, Ideas, Fashion, War - each one as welcome as bread to the famished.show more
