A good quote can make a world of difference when you want to deliver a powerful speech or write a persuasive paper. But finding the right quote for the right audience has never been easy-until now.

And I Quote is a remarkable compilation and indispensable reference book that proves a quote doesn't have to be ancient to be classic. From the time-honored to the newly minted, these are wise and witty 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).

Arranged in a unique and simple format, And I Quote will prove to be one book no successful writer or speechmaker will want to do without.

"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there," said Will Rogers; And I Quote will keep you moving in the right direction.
