About the book:

This 15th edition of the book, first published in 1855, has been expanded to include more than 22,500 quotations and more than 400 new authors both historical and contemporary - from Susan B.Anthony and Muhammad Ali to Mozart and Mick Jagger. It has been redesigned in a larger, more readable format which accommodates more quotations in less space and for the first time supplies each quotation with a number for ready index reference. More translations from non-British works appear in this edition, besides some fresh translations of others already in the text. For the first time, the enlarged section of anonymous entries includes sea shanties, cowboy songs and spirituals, as well as traditional poems and chants from Africa and from North American Indians. Even the Bible, classical and Shakespearean sections have been examined and expanded, along with the sections of Buddhist and Sanskrit writings and the Koran.
