The Oxford Dictionary of Thematic QuotationsBook - 2000
The Oxford Dictionary of Thematic Quotations is a collection of over 7,000 quotations, arranged thematically for easy look-up. Covering an enormous range of nearly 600 themes, there is every subject you can think of, from the more traditional topics of Courage or Parliament, to topical themessuch as The Internet or Genetic Engineering. The quotations that stand together in each particular theme range from the very old to the modern: both Horace and Maeve Binchy comment on the theme The Present, while Desmond Morris and Jeremy Bentham give their views on the category of Animal Rights. Auseful author index (including descriptions and context lines) gives quick and easy access to what is in the dictionary and provides information on each author. Whether you wish to discuss a particular subject with friends, or if you want to discover what people have said about a certain topic overthe centuries, this is an amusing and fascinating guide to who said what about what.
