The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations
Oxford University Press, USA | Number Of Pages: 1168 | 2004-10-22 | ISBN: 0198607202 | 7.21 MB

This is a major new edition of Oxford's largest and most comprehensive dictionary of quotations, bringing you the wisdom of the ages and the sound bites of today in 20,000+ quotations. The text is a browser's paradise, covering people and events from Cleopatra to J. K. Rowling, and the battle of Marathon to the Hutton Inquiry. The keyword index will help you to trace that half-remembered quote, and identifies the quotations that give us key phrases such as 'state of the Union' and 'dodgy dossier'. Special sections bring together categories such as Misquotations and Film lines. Traditional areas have been enriched and the best of the new added, and the Introduction tells the story of the nation's favourite quotations dictionary over 60 years. 'Come, and take choice of all my library.' William Shakespeare 'Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle.' Michelangelo 'If business always made the right decisions, business wouldn't be business.' J. Paul Getty 'I was captured for life by chemistry and by crystals.' Dorothy Hodgkin 'Superhuman effort isn't worth a damn unless it achieves results.' Ernest Shackleton

The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations is as impressive, erudite, enjoyable, and educational a tome as you might expect from Oxford. It's the sort of undertaking the press does very well. The first such dictionary, as compiled by Oxford, was published in 1953, and it's been tweaking, modifying, and updating it ever since. This new edition, the fifth, offers well over 20,000 quotations from more than 3,000 authors. Responding to correspondence from their readers, Oxford has restored some material from past editions, such as the proverbs and nursery-rhymes section. There's a much more inclusive attention to sacred texts of world religions, and 2,000 quotations are brand new.

The quotations are arranged alphabetically, by author, so browsing provides insight into the authors quoted, more so than do compendiums that are organize by theme. There is also, however, a full thematic index, starting with Administration, Age, and America, and running the alphabetical gamut through to War, Weather, and Youth. And that is followed by a 283-page comprehensive keyword index. If you needed to fault Oxford with something, it might be the small print, but it certainly wouldn't be the thoroughness or cross-referenceability.
