Containing more than 5,000 quotations from authors as diverse as Bertolt Brecht, George W. Bush, Homer Simpson, Carl Sagan, William Shatner, and Desmond Tutu, this dictionary is organized alphabetically by author, with generous cross-referencing and keyword and thematic indexes.

Coetzee, and Toni Morrison; politicians ranging from Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill to Rudy Giuliani and Bill Clinton; entertainers such as Halle Berry and Jerry Seinfeld; and star athletes such as David Beckham and Serena Williams.
