A follow-up to The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said—a fresh selection of sharp, witty zingers gathered from both famous and utterly unknown (but quotable) sources.Robert Byrne’s quote books are widely praised as authoritative and accessible sources of sayings for any and all occasions. Byrne’s wit, diligent research, and creativity combine to form a fresh go-to reference that serves users better than Google—no wi-fi required.
This new book is contextualized by theme, flowing logically to form a narrative. Quotations on courtship are followed by snippets on love, sex, and divorce. Quotations on lawyers are followed by quotes on money, and so on. This collection is not just reference but also serves as entertainment in and of itself.
A sampling of the contents, in no particular order:
ú Steve Martin: “I’d do anything for a good body except exercise and eat right.”
· Jon Stewart: “War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography.”
ú Amanda Cross: “The point of quotations is that one can use another’s words to be insulting.”
