The Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations Book Excerpt:

Organized by theme, the LODQ is packed with over 4,000 quotations on more than 250 topics from Actors to Writing by way of America, Boredom, Cinema, England, Heaven and Hell, Last Words, Lying, Marriage, Mathematics, and Parents. A full index allows readers to search the text by author as wellas by theme. Among recent contributors are Alan Clark, Norman Lamont, Frank Zappa, Christina Stead, Banjo Paterson, Germaine Greer, Joni Mitchell, and Gerald Ratner; they join a distinguished cast from all eras, including the usual suspects (Shakespeare, the Bible, Shaw, Voltaire, Aristotle, MarkTwain, Dorothy Parker, and Samuel Johnson to mention just a few) and representatives of all strands of opinion and degrees of political correctness (from Ronald Reagan to Andrea Dworkin and John Major to Leon Trotsky). The first ever thematic quotations dictionary to be derived from Oxford's truly incomparable quotations files LODQ is published in the same compact format as The Little Oxford Dictionary. On the Future: The future ain't what it used to be. (Yogi Berra) On Politicians: There are no true friends in politics. We are all sharks circling...(Alan Clark) On Pleasure: There's no greater bliss in life than when the plumber eventually comes to unblock your drains. No writer can give that sort of pleasure. (Victoria Glendinning)
