"Both an expert and a collector, James Geary has devoted his life to aphorisms - and the last few years to organizing, indexing, and even translating them. At long last, he has assembled a compendium: Geary's Guide, Beginning in ancient Egypt and China, it spans the complete history of the aphorism to date, right up to contemporary writers and artists - such as Woody Allen, Barbara Kruger, and Leonard Cohen - currently engaged in a revival of the form. Some aphorists appear in this book in English for the first time."
