From Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde to Fidel Castro and Dolly Parton, the Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations features 4,000 of the best quotations of past and present. Packed with quotable quotes on over 300 themes from 'Parties' to 'Punctuality', and from 'Apology' to 'Toasts', this is the ideal tool for finding exactly the right words to express yourself in any situation. Its perfect complement is the Little Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs, which includes fascinating information on 2,000 proverbs and sayings from around the world and across 250 subjects - from 'Cats' and 'Dogs' to 'Achievement' and 'Extravagance'.
Here are classic quotations from writers like Robert Louis Stevenson ('Wine is bottled poetry'), sharp remarks of today 'Winning isn't everything. It's the money you make doing it that's everything.' (Lee Trevino), and proverbs old and new, from the traditional 'Let sleeping dogs lie' to the Chinese saying 'Once bitten by a snake, a man will be afraid of a piece of rope for three years'. Between them, these two charming little books will have the perfect words for whatever you want to say.

The Little Oxford Gift Box reference desk set is wonderfully packaged, and well bound. While it can not in size match the larger reference books as in other desk sets such as the Oxford dictionary. Though this "little set" provides much more than any "pocket" quotation reference books. Elizabeth Knowles and Susan Radcliffe are to be admired for some of the choices within the books themselves. My personal Library holds several other books such as these; this I write as I have no bias in this review. Simply said; my personal needs for a quick reference needed as a writer are met and well satisfied with this purchase. I might also add the service was outstanding, in regards with shipping times and the packing of the product.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
