About this book
A collection of aphorisms from the likes of La Rouchefoucald, Samuel johnson and Virginia Woolf.
This title shows how rewarding an art form the aphorism can be, and how well the aphorist can illuminate the hidden truth, or lay bare the ironies of existence. Sections including "Religion", "Money and Rank", "Men, Women, Marriage" and "Politics", cover the range of aphoristic literature.
