Overview

The Book of Celtic Wisdom is a collection of the poems, proverbs, and aphorisms of the Celtic people that have been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. These are the proverbs and blessings that bring the wisdom of the ancient Celts to life. Their thoughts on charity ("Stretch out your hand in giving, and you will never stretch it out in need"), aging ("The older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune"), and work ("The lazy young man and the poor old man; two sides of the same coin") are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago. A thoughtful and reflective compilation, this book is bound to inspire, enlighten, and entertain readers every-where.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Based in County Dublin, Scott has authored over 80 books, including Irish Folk and Fairy Tales, and so has had ample opportunity to gather the material for this pocket-sized book. Set in a Celt-like font and separated by runes, the book's wisdom runs from the canny ("Better a good enemy than a bad friend") to the timely: "The ink of a scholar will survive longer than the blood of a martyr." (Feb. 1) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
