Praise for A Dictionary of Love
"A Dictionary of Love is a veritable Valentine of a book. It's a tidy collection of
bon mots on the subject of love."
"A really fun book to read. There is either a good laugh or a real thought
provoker (or even both) on each page."
"Consider these 'pearls of wisdom' from A Dictionary of Love."
"Who wrote the book of love? The Answer, historians will argue, might be pretty difficult to trace.
But one thing is certainly true, whoever wrote the book of love could probably have used Gil Friedman's
A Dictionary of Love, on the desk beside the tablets, papyrus sheets, sheepskin, or whatever the muses used in the misty land of romantic wisdom."
"With its variety of quotes - from the acerbic to the spiritual to the sentimental - this collection is never dull, and it also offers many thoughts worth meditating on."
"...Very Beautiful book, we will refer to it often."
"What a joy to recieve your wonderful book. I am honored you included mine."
"A great depository of quotes on love."
"What sets Mr. Friedman's volume apart from earlier anthologies on the theme of loves is that he included many
New Age sages and they add a touch of seriousness and timeliness. There is Rollo May, Meher Baba,
Gerald G. Jampolsky, Bernie S. Siegal, to mention just a few."
"Funny, rueful, practical, wise and compassionate, this collection is a recommended gift to anyone
who is in or might be in a love relationship (like teenagers). One charming feature is the great range
of attitudes displayed. Once can disagree totally with one, and on the same page find one that rings
true and provides an insight. Lots of fun, and more educational than many a tome."
"This rich reference book is a must for all of us who want to express and understand love.
Helpful, funny, bittersweet comments and insights...In all, about 300 lovers from various times and places
unite to guide the reader on an odyssey invaluable to those who write lyrics, poetry, or an occasional
love letter. It would make a suitable gift to mark either the end or the beginning of a love affair."
"Witty, profound and sometimes just plain fun this book is a delightful addition to the growing
ranks of subject specific quotation books. It will be welcome by anyone - reader, writer, or librarian
- who has ever searched in vain for just the right quote on the subject of love."
