This updated edition is the perfect gift for every occasion. From Shakespeare and Mark Twain to Albert Einstein and Kate Moss, this dictionary features 4,000 of the best and most popular quotations of past and present. Packed with quotable quotes on over 300 themes from Parties to Punctuality, this is the ideal tool for finding exactly the right words to express yourself in any situation. 'There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island' said Walt Disney, and in this book a crowd of voices offer ideas: 'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world', 'Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing', 'The fool wonders, the wise man asks', 'Comedy is tragedy plus time', 'Friends are the sunshine of life'.
