This isn't a book I would sit down and read cover-to-cover, though I find it a fun "encyclopedia" of sorts to look up quotes on particular topics.

(I'm writing this in November 2016 merely to report I have not been active on GoodReads for several years. I've been busying writing and editing books and haven't had the time or inclination to keep up with social media. I don't object to this sort of site on principle. It's just that I'm bothered by the way keeping up everything can suck up one's time and become an end in itself.)
