Updated and still great
When I first found an earlier edition of this book about 15 years ago at a local secondhand bookstore, I realized that I had found a valuable resource. George Selddes has compiled quotes from as far back as pre-biblical times. I can only hope that further updated editions will continue to be avaiilable even though Seldes himself is no longer alive to see it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great for Reference and Entertainment
This book could be equally used as a reference source,as an excellent book to browse, or a book to read cover to cover. It is edited down and includes almost every great thinker worth quoting. The two exceptions to people not covered in this book are Shakespeare and Jesus. There are dozens of sources to find out what Shakespeare said and there is much controversy over what Jesus actually did or did not say. I reccommend this book to anyone.Was this review helpful?
