Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0807067830, Paperback)I don't know how they skipped Bartlett's attention, but Rosalie Maggio has culled 16,000 quotations from 2,600 women for an indispensable reference work. Elaine Stritch is quoted saying "New York is like a disco, but without the music." Mae West explains that "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful." The remaining 15,998 wax wise, witty, and silly on topics arranged alphabetically from Ability to Zucchini.

This topically arranged volume of memorable and dynamic words covers an extraordinary range of subjects: love, coffee, death, football, poetry, politics, horses, money, and more than 1,400 others. Featuring approximately 16,000 quotations, including 10,000 new entries, it is the most complete collection in print. The 2,600 women quoted here are writers and artists, scientists and musicians, lawyers and politicians, scholars and celebrities. They speak from six continents and from ancient times to the present. A section explaining the origins of frequently cited misquotations, an informative biographical index, and an index of subjects and key lines complete this reference.
