Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations; Little Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs; Little Oxford Dictionary of Word Origins

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 Helen Keller ('Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing'), sharp remarks of today 'I'm just trying to change the world one sequin at a time' (Lady Gaga), and proverbs old and new, from the traditional 'Union is strength' to the African saying 'A single bracelet does not jingle'. Between them, these two charming little books will have the perfect words for whatever you want to say.
