Thesaurus of anecdotes by Edmund Fuller( Book )

6 editions published between 1941 and 1945 in English and Undetermined and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anecdotes are stories with points. They are tools -- nail-sinkers to drive home arguments firmly. In their old form they were known as parables. By means of them Jesus Christ taught. So the Greek slave, Aesop, sagely propounded his fables. Today the true anecdote is still the counterpart of the parable and fable. Time has tended to shorten it somewhat and, as an attribute of our temperament, we have made it often funny. The majority of the anecdotes in this book are humorous. Many are serious and thoughtful. All prove something. The thing to remember is, many jokes are anecdotes but not all anecdotes are jokes. - Introduction
