Joyce & Maurice Lindsay (Editors) - The Burns Quotation Book (2nd Hand Hardback)
One of the qualities which has made Burns' poetry accessible and memorable to a wide range of readers is the way in which he can enshrine proverbial wisdom in a few pithy lines.
Burns himself was a ready user of quotations . . . "I like to have quotations ready for every occasion", he said in a letter of 1788.
This anthology is a collection of 700 quotations from Burns' poetry, arranged alphabetically by subject, under many headings such as : birds, books, children, clothes, criticism, death, the devil, drinking, fame, farming, God, health, love, manners, money, parenthood, rank, remorse, sex and women.
