It's a vast resource, but every one is a gem, from such knowledgeable souls as Hunter S Thompson, The Talmud, Dorothy Parker and Daffy Duck.With each quote handily placed within every possible category you could think of, and with more quotes in every genre than anywhere else, A WORD FROM THE WISE is a must for anyone who thinks they could do with knowing a little bit or a lot more.'A quotation at the right moment is like bread in a famine' The Talmud'Imagination is more important than knowledge' Albert Einstein'If you can count your money, you don't have a billion dollars' John Paul Getty'Violence is the repartee of the illiterate' George Bernard Shaw'Women who seek to be equal to men lack ambition' Timothy Leary'A narcissist is someone better-looking than you are' Gore Vidal
