Abounding Love: A Tresury of Wisdomby M. Scott Peck, Ariel Books
Abounding Wisdom and Abounding Love are collections of quotes that Dr. M. Scott Peck personally selected and arranged according to his unique perspective, which combines knowledge of medicine, psychiatry, and theology. He selected quotes that he believes provide an intelligent overview on the subjects of love and wisdom-in particular, quotes that made him think.
Dr. Peck's insightful introductions add even greater meaning to the already provocative quotes. "We can love virtually anyone if we put our minds to it, " writes Dr. Peck. "But there is little that is warm and bubbly about it. Liking or affection is primarily a feeling; love is primarily a matter of decision and action."
Many people believe they'll gain wisdom by studying everything around them, such as history, art, nature, and life. In Abounding Wisdom, Dr. Peck teach us that wisdom comes primarily through an understanding of God's spirit, by opening the way to God's grace... and by study. "Certain people seem to be almost born with an instinct for wisdom," he writes. "On the other hand, I believe that wisdom can be learned, but only by thinking about the challenges and experiences of our lives."
