A good quotations collection will give the definitive wording of quotations, provide information as to the quotations' sources and eliminate spurious sources, and be interesting enough to read or browse in its own right, even when no particular quotation is sought. The Yale Book of Quotations does all...

But Who Said It First? And What Exactly Did They Say?

评论者是 WKW (公布的WorldCat用户 2006-12-23) 极好 Permalink
“I really didn’t say everything I said.” Maybe not, but Yogi Berra really said that, and it’s here in “The Yale Book of Quotations” with 11,999 other good ones, drawn from some 3200 spokespersons, statesmen, saints, and singers: Du Bois and Dickens and W. C. Fields, Dorothy Parker and Oscar and Sappho,...

schema:description"This reader-friendly volume contains more than 12,000 famous quotations, arranged alphabetically by author. It is unique in its focus on American quotations and its thorough coverage of items not only from literary and historical sources but also from popular culture, sports, computers, politics, law and the social sciences. Anonymously authored items appear in sections devoted to folk songs, advertising slogans, film lines, television catchphrases, proverbs and others. For each quotation, a source and first date of use are cited. In many cases, new research for this book has uncovered an earlier date or a different author than had previously been understood. It was Beatrice Kaufman, not Sophie Tucker, who exclaimed, ʺIʼve been poor and Iʼve been rich. Rich is better!ʺ William Tecumseh Sherman wasnʼt the originator of ʺWar is hell!ʺ Its earliest attribution was to Napoleon. Numerous entries are enhanced with annotations to clarify meaning or context. These fascinating annotations, along with extensive cross-references that identify related quotations, and a large keyword index, will satisfy both the reader who seeks specific information and the curious browser who appreciates an amble through entertaining pages.--Provided by publisher."@en
