The quotes combine the familiar with the irresistible, the poetic with the political, the wise with the witty. From authors to statesmen, artists to kings, emperors to satirists, there is something here for everyone. But there is no such thing as a quick dip into this book; vastly entertaining as well as endlessly useful, the dictionary will draw the reader from treasure to treasure, provoking new thoughts on every page. Now you can learn whether Marie Antoinette really told the poor to eat cake; find out what Mussolini said about making the trains run on time; discover who it was who said "I've no time to be tired."
First published in 1998 as the much acclaimed Concise Dictionary of Foreign Quotations, and now repackaged in fresh, convenient pocket-sized editions, here are famous sayings in five languages Latin, French, Italian, German and Spanish each available as individual paperbacks for the first time.
