¸  PRIDE          ¸  ENVY          ¸  ANGER          ¸  COVETOUSNESS          ¸  GLUTTONY          ¸  SLOTH          ¸  LUST AND THEN THERE IS SIN ITSELF! From the Old Testament to W.C. Fields; Anonymous to Cary Grant, many words have been expressed on behalf of Sin, and the seven deadliest of them. This book is a riotous collection of 1,500 of these quotes. With amusing line drawings, and a foreword by James Finn Garner, bestselling author of  Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, that reassures the sinner not to feel guilty all the time, THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS is so witty, wise, and entertaining that it's a downright sin!         Pride: "Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you're wonderful." --Ann Landers         Envy: "Jealousy is all the fun you think they had."      --Erica Jong         Anger: "Arguments only confirm people in their own opinions."   --Booth Tarkington                  Covetousness: "The point is, you can't be too greedy."   --Donald Trump         Gluttony: "Better belly burst than good liquor be lost."  --Jonathan Swift                  Sloth: "Never do today what you can do as well tomorrow."  --Aaron Burr                  Lust: "Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire."  --George Bernard Shaw         Sin: "When choosing between two evils, I always take the one I've never tried before."   --Mae West With a brief introduction to each sin as well as a definition and many, many synonyms (in case you thought what you did was not really sinful!), THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS and its 1,500 quotations is delicious, delightful--and devilish!
