The Cassell Dictionary of Regrettable QuotationsBook - 1999
The Cassell Dictionary of Regrettable Quotations is a richly entertaining but often thought-provoking collection of some of the worst-chosen words in history. The 1500 quotations embrace spectacular gaffes and rash predictions ("groups of guitars are on the way out, " said a Decca Records executive of the Beatles), misjudgments, flawed verdicts and famous last words ("I feel a little better." -- Queen Victoria on her deathbed).
