A quick and practical reference guide to useful quotations appropriate to a wide range of contexts, "The Guinness Dictionary of Quotations for All Occasions" is arranged thematically according to the purposes for which quotations can be used: from important family celebrations and festivals such as weddings, birthdays, Christmas and New Year, to messages of congratulations, good luck and consolation. The quotations are drawn from a broad range of sources, including the utterances of statesmen and women past and present, writers, actors and musicians. They range from the light-hearted and humorous to the more profound and reflective. Here are words of wisdom from scholars and philosophers, messages of goodwill for the Christmas season, quips to enliven a wedding speech, one-liners to raise the spirits of those who are in hospital, words of sympathy, support and consolation, as well as words of welcome, apology and excuse.
