The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations Third Edition 1980 pb Book Published byOxford University PressCopyright 1980907 PagesSome quotes from the book:· President John QuincyAdams 1767 - 1848:- Think of your forefathers! Think of your posterity! (speech,22 Dec. 1802)· Samuel Adams 1722 -1803:-A nation of shop-keepers are very seldom so disinterested. (oration said tohave been delivered at Philadelphia, 1Aug. 1776)· Benjamin Franklin1706-1790:- A little neglect may breed mischief, for want of a nail, the shoewas lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse therider was lost. (Maxims…prefixed to Poor Richard’s Almanack(1758))Many a home and library inthe English-speaking world has a copy of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations inthe first or, more frequently, second edition.Those should not be dispensed with nor superseded; but need will befound to make room for this new, third edition.For over a quarter of a century has passed since the publication of thelast revision, and much that is quoted or quotable has been said or written orsimply come into wider cognizance during this period. Add that the second edition, published in1953, was about 95% the same in content as the first edition of 1941 – the differenceconsisting then chiefly of the addition of Second World War quotations(essentially of course those of Winston Churchill), correction of errors,rearrangement of certain sections, and much more full and precise indexing –and it will be seen that this volume presents the first substantial revision ofthe Dictionary since it original compilation.Book measures 9 ¼” x 6 ¾” x2”There is a little normalwear on the cover, some writing throughout the book, a smudge mark along thefront pages; and some pages have been specially dog-eared, otherwise this oldbook is in good condition.
