    A fresh selection of sharp, witty zingers gathered from both famous and utterly unknown (but very quotable) sources, by the editor of the popularThe 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said

    Robert Byrne’s quote books are widely praised as authoritative and accessible sources of sayings for any and all occasions. Byrne’s own wit, diligent research, and creativity combine to form a fresh go-to reference that serves readers better than Google—no Wi-Fi required. The 2,548 Wittiest Things Anybody Ever Said is an all-new collection of clever quips and laugh-out-loud punch lines from Gracie Allen to Frank Zappa, on such topics as sex, divorce, religion, fashion, animals, and money:

    STEVE MARTIN: “I’d do anything for a good body except exercise and eat right.”

    JON STEWART: “War is God’s way of teaching Americans geography.”

    NORA EPHRON: “Successful parents have adult children who can pay for their own psychoanalysis.”

    This compilation, to be enjoyed by generations young and old, deserves a place of honor on every language lover’s bookshelf.
