Summary and Info
A good quote can make a world of difference when deliver-ing a powerful speech or writing a persuasive paper, but finding the right quote for the right audience has never been easy-until now. And I Quote is an indispensable refer-ence book that proves a quote doesn't have to be ancient to be classic. From the time-honored to the newly minted, thesewise and witting words that can be used for any occasion, from sales training seminars ('When you've stopped talking, you've lost your customer.'-Estee Lauder) to award dinners ('I don't deserve this, but then I've got arthritis, and I don't deserve that either.'-Jack Benny). This new edition is totally revised and updated with expanded sections that are relevant to current popular cul-ture and industry, e.g., tech-nology, politics, health care, and gerontology. Arranged in a unique and simple format, this is one book no successful writer or speechmaker will want to be without.
