Simon and Schuster, 27 de des. 2004 - 672 pàgines
Drawing from diverse personages from Goethe to Churchill to Woody Allen, The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said is a witty wise quotation collection that deserves a special place on every humor lover's bookshelf.

These unique, funny, and outrageous quotations, previously published in four separate volumes, are now gathered together in a seemingly limitless trove of pithy and often irreverent one-liners, retorts, put-downs, jokes, and last words that cover every conceivable subject and will appeal to every taste.

Highlights include:

—W. C. Fields: "Start every day with a smile and get it over with."
George Burns:” "Happiness is having a large loving family in another city."

And many more.
