    This anthology crackles with quick wits, showing the Scots mind in action on themes from Advice, Aphorisms and Epithets ('It's the early Christian that gets the fattest lion' - Saki) to Youth and Age ('Old and young, we are all on our last cruise' - R L Stevenson). The collection ranges across seven centuries and includes interested foreigners such as Samuel Johnson and Rabelais as well as Scots.
