Who said that?

(Meanings and origins of popular sayings)

 

This book is not intended to be a complete dictionary of phrases and sayings, but I have tried to bring something a bit different and contemporary to the ones that I have chosen, by including some incidental uses as well as the history and linguistic origin.

I found that when I started to collect these sayings and phrases, I told my friends and family, and suddenly people were coming to me and saying where does this come from, who said that, and what is the origin of this saying. I have found the research absolutely fascinating and I hope that you too will be intrigued by my findings.
