Overview

Here is a compendium of human wisdom culled from the world’s celebrated—and anonymous - minds, from Confucius and Shakespeare to Maya Angelou and Woody Allen.
The quotations are grouped in categories that reflect the range of human existence, hopes, and achievement:

Life and Death (And Some of What Happens in Between)
“Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.”
—James Thurber

Love and Friendship
“The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.”
—Blaise Pascal

Success and Ways to Achieve It
“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”—Sir Winston Churchill

The Life of the Mind
“Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.”
—Jorge Luis Borges

Politics and Politicians, Government and Statesmen
“Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes.”
—Benjamin Franklin

Proverbial Wisdom
“Joy shared is twice the joy. Sorrow shared is half the sorrow.”
—Swedish proverb

    Inspirational

    I use this book as a reference for inspirational sayings for my high school students. I find easier than looking up random phrases on the internet, since I can keep track of which ones I have used. My husband has also used it in business presentations. Plus, I like thumbing through it and reading it on occasion!
