Synopsis

WIT AND WISDOM FROM A TO Z

With more than 3,000 quotations on everything from fashion and feminism to men, marriage, friendship, history, technology, sports, and more, this massive compilation proves once and for all that women know everything! Each page offers wisdom, wit, and inspiration from a host of legendary women—from Jane Austen and Colette to Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Toni Morrison, Liz Phair, Ellen DeGeneres, and Naomi Klein. Here’s what they have to say about:

Success
“I still have my feet on the ground. I just wear better shoes.”
—Oprah Winfrey

Men and Women
“Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backward and in high heels.”
—Faith Whittlesey

Being Single
“I’ve never been married, but I tell people I’m divorced so they won’t think something’s wrong with me.”
—Elayne Boosler

Individuality
“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”
—Judy Garland

Family
“If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don’t be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning ‘Good morning’ at total strangers.”
—Maya Angelou

Quotations
“I always have a quotation for everything—it saves original thinking.”
—Dorothy L. Sayers

With contributions from writers, artists, celebrities, politicians, scientists, and legendary figures all over the world, Women Know Everything! offers addictive reading—and a superb reference—for women of all ages.
