The pages that follow prove the rule. Tuleja's "Quirky Quotations" is a witty and lighthearted look at some memorable quotations and the stories behind them. The book is a delight to read-instead of being a dull compendium of quotations, it cleverly and briefly explains the context of many famous, infamous and obscure remarks (some of which are worth remembering at parties or at meetings that have become far too serious). Tuleja breaks the book up into short paragraphs that can easily be read at brief.

Most reference questions dealing with quotations are either of the who-said-what or of the -speech . Although this volume might be used in these ways, the lack of an index makes it more of a browsing volume.

Most reference questions dealing with quotations are either of the who-said-what or of the -speech genre. The author ( The Cat's Pajamas: A Fabulous Fictionary of Familiar Phrases, Fawcett: Ballantine, 1988; Curious Customs: The Stories Behind 296 Popular American Rituals, Harmony: Crown, 1988) deliberately omits the most quoted (Shakespeare, Wilde, Shaw, Mencken, Ecclesiastes) to concentrate on the less well known or off the wall.

The inscription at the begining of Tuleja's "Quirky Quotations" is from Cicero: "Nothing that can be said is so absurd that some philosopher has not already said it." The pages that follow prove the rule.

Tuleja breaks the book up into short paragraphs that can easily be read at brief sittings. This makes "Quirky Quotations" ideal for reading on an airplane or--dare I say it--as a bathroom reader.

This book is craftily written and offers a wide range of insight into the diverse perceptions of many prestigious thinkers.
Tad Tuleja has been thorough in his accounting of most quotes, making this background is both fascinating and educational.
Light hearted, but with a certain allurement that inspires the most casual of contemplators to give all that life has in it some thought.
