Description

This is a unique collection of quotation arranged chronologically from earliest times to the present day. Many of these have been selected for their historical interest - that is for the light they throw on some important events or figures, or on some attitude current the time. But, many well-known, and not so well-known literally quotations, witty remarks, etc., have also been included. Each chapter of the book is a historical period and begins with a short introductory article on the period.

You will find the book useful in a number of ways:

  • To find quotations about events or things said in a year.
  • To follow a period of history from what was said at the time.
  • To compare the way that attitudes have changed to certain issues (or, how they have not changed).
  • To trace the sources of a known quotation.
  • To find quotation by particular people. The name index has the same reference system as the keyword index.
