KIRKUS REVIEW

Most collections of aphorisms suffer from difficulty in applying the apt quotation to the right occasions. Here is a clever bit of editing and arranging, with all the ominent contributors from the classics to the moderns, sorted for the content of their pieces, which are arranged according to matter. In chronological order going from A for Advice to Y for Youth, this ""little book of aphorisms"" should provide after dinner speakers, professional conversationalists and mere people with the right word at the right time. There are other collections more meaty, more steeped in scholarship, but this should be enough for the average need.
