1st ed.
Completely revised and expanded, the new edition of this extremely entertaining, one-of-a-kind collection of the best quotations from the past 50 years contains twice as many quotes as the previous edition (which sold 35,000 hardcover copies).

With more than 20,000 quotes from the famous, the infamous, the renowned and the obscure, Simpson's Contemporary Quotations is a treasury of the most memorable, important and funniest comments uttered between 1950 and today. In order to make finding these quotes as easy as possible, the book is first divided into three parts: The World, Humankind and Communications and The Arts. Each of these three parts is then divided into 60 subsections, within which the quotes are organized alphabetically. The book also features two indexes, one by source and one by subject and key line.
