>I’ve never owned a book of quotations . . . until now. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m such a fan of Garner’s Modern American Usage, published by Oxford University Press (and also of the OXFORD AMERICAN Writer’s Thesaurus), that I decided to take them up on their offer of a 50% discount on their Dictionary of Quotations.
Lets see what the book has to say about “quotations”:
He swathed himself in quotations–as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors. –Rudyard Kipling
People who like quotations love meaningless generalizations. –Graham Greene
I hate quotations. Tell me what you know. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
I always have a quotation for everyting–it saves original thinking. –Dorothy Sayers
Yes. Well. Quite.
