This book indeed had the best things anybody ever said. It was funny and intriguing all at the same time. There were also some very important life lessons to be learned. The quotes were from some very interesting people, many of whom I would never imagine saying such things that they said. Initially, I began reading the book because it seemed funny. Many of the quotes were more jokes than anything else. But looking deeper, you realize that there are some morals to every miniature story.

There's really not too much to say about this as it's just a book of quotes. I've read it a few times, and reread it every couple of years. It's a quick read, and quite enjoyable. Many of the quotes are humorous, but there are also plenty of serious ones in there as well. It's set up in a manner that makes it easy to read from front-to-back unlike most quote books. I highly recommend it. It makes for light entertainment when you're not willing to commit to a short story or novel.

Not a bad collection, but I prefer more serious quotes to almost all jokes. Also, this book has very little organization and I do prefer everything neatly categorized.
