From Shakespeare and Mark Twain to Albert Einstein and Kate Moss, the Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations features 4,000 of the best and most popular quotations of past and present. Packed with quotable quotes on over 300 themes from 'Parties' to 'Punctuality', and from 'Apology' to 'Toasts', this is the ideal tool for finding exactly the right words to express yourself in any situation.

Its perfect complement is the Little Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs, which includes fascinating information on 2,000 proverbs and sayings from around the world and across 250 subjects—from 'Books' and 'Borrowing' to 'Dreams' and 'Cats'. Beautifully produced and designed, it is the perfect gift for anyone who loves language.

Together, these two charming little books will have the perfect words for whatever you want to say.
