Editorial Reviews

"As the first general collection of Latin quotations published in ten years, this book offers wisdom and humor from classical, medieval, and renaissance periods. Its scope is wide (nearly 8000 quotations are listed)....Overall, this is a delightful and instructive collection. Its selected English-Latin index makes the book useful for beginners or those whose Latin is rusty."
