William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon is the most quoted author in the Oxford Dictionary. According to Gtaham Phillips and Martin Keatman (authors of The Shakespeare Conspiracy published in Great Britain in 1994 cy Century Publishing), "The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations contains 38 pages from the best selling book of all time, the Bible. It is only exceeded by one other source, the 70 pages of Shakespeare." (Keatman and Phillips, p.2). Stefany DeVincentis, Delaware
