Overview

“True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen.”
Francois, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, Writer

    A great book for gifts

    This is a gift book that would make a nice Valentine¿s Day (with chocolate of course ¿ aside hint to fearless husband) present especially for the romance reader in your household or just someone a bit depressed. The quotes come from a vast range of the famous, almost famous, the non-famous the infamous, and the most famed Anonymous. Contributions from Gabran to Gaiman to Giacomo (Casanova) provide the audience with short quotes on what love is. Other cited individuals include the likes of Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush, Jane Austen and Jonathan Swift, Fred Rogers and Mae West. The book is divided into eleven sections that run the gamut from family to friends to possessions to of course true love. This is simply a fun compilation that a reader will love to peruse over time keeping in mind in the immortal words of G. Marx: ¿Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read¿. This delightful compilation of loving quotes lives up to that credo.------------- Harriet Klausner
