The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said by Robert Byrne

Drawing from diverse personages -- Goethe to Churchill to Woody Allen -- Robert Byrne has mined a collection of wit and wisdom that deserves a special place on every humor lover's bookshelf. These unique, witty, and outrageous quotations, previously published in four separate volumes, are now gathered together in a seemingly limitless trove of pithy and often irreverent one-liners, retorts, put-downs, jokes, and last words that cover every conceivable subject and will appeal to every taste. Highlights include:
"Start every day with a smile and get it over with." -- W. C. Fields
"Men read maps better than women because only men understand that an inch can equal a hundred miles." -- Roseanne Barr
"Happiness is having a large loving family in another city." -- George Burns

A fantastic, unpretentious, thought provoking, not so inspirational but pretty damn funny collection, that is immensely entertaining. Even for those who don't get it. You can quote me on that.

A friend sent us this book. Now she is our best friend for doing that. We enjoyed reading parts of it each day and carry a copy of it in our car so that we have it handy while waiting for someone to finish shopping. We have ordered and given the book to each of our daughters and their families and to other good friends as well. Robert Byrne is to be highly commended for organizing and having this book published. It is a daily joy to read.
