A WORD FROM THE WISE is a one-stop shop with over 6,000 quotes. It's a vast resource, but every one is a gem, from such knowledgeable souls as Hunter S Thompson, The Talmud, Dorothy Parker and Daffy Duck. With each quote handily placed within every possible category you could think of, and with more quotes in every genre than anywhere else, A WORD FROM THE WISE is a must for anyone who thinks they could do with knowing a little bit or a lot more.
