Why 2,548?

I liked this explanation from the introduction to The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said (a book of quotations):

“Why 2,548 quotes instead of, say 2,547? I didn’t want to leave a good one out. Why not 2,549? I didn’t want any padding.”

    2548 is the year 2005 according to the Thai calendar. Coincidence?

    Guess so, as the book was first published in 2001..

    Never mind then! Happy New Year everyone!
