Summary
About 10,000 outstanding quotable comments uttered since 1950, with special emphasis on the last two dozen years, can be found only in Simpson's Contemporary Quotations. Bons mots, witticisms, epigrams and profundities from nearly 4,000 people - famous and infamous, renowned and obscure - fill a unique compilation. The quotes in this lively collection, ranging from the words of Hank Aaron to those of Vladimir Zworykin, from Politics & Government to Communications & the Arts, are drawn from thousands of sources into one useful volume. Simpson s Contemporary Quotations provides the date and whenever possible the circumstances surrounding each utterance. This detailed documentation makes the book an essential reference for journalists, executives, jurists, clerics, politicians, teachers, speechwriters, students, scholars, authors and all others who want to quote with accuracy and flair
