Have you ever wanted to be an intellectual, without all that tedious work of getting an advanced college degree? Here's your shortcut to the world of the well read. Just open this collection of 1,417 quotations from the mouths of the wildly famous to the painfully obscure, and voila!--instant erudition.

It doesn't take much to sound as if you know what you're talking about. Just toss off some time-tested wisdom from Henry James or Plotinus . . . or, if you're feeling daring, a line or two of poetry from Byron. In no time at all you'll be sipping a glass of Madeira, sampling imported Gouda, and bragging about your collection of first edition Vonneguts.

Just like an intellectual.

Something for every occasion

I love quotes and this book has almost sated my desire to read quotes just for the sake of it. I can never remember them verbatim and so they will never be regurgitated as a witty retort to put a pompous opponent in their place. They do however, find themselves tagged on to my email signature so that others can benefit from those articulate pearls of wisdom, witticisms and put-downs. This could be a good read too for anyone wanting an angle, or some word padding for a speech of any kind.

Quotes for Conversation

I am one of those people that always thinks of what they could have said after the event. I lie in bed thinking "why didn't I say that?!" and not just in an argument, but in any conversation! Maybe I am too harsh on myself, but I definitely think that I am more intelligent in my head than the impression I give off in conversation. These quotes are amusing and memorable! They certainly provide you with something to say in any conversation or at any event.
