Introduction

Reading has been the fuel of my motivation. It has changed the direction in which I have traveled, and it has enhanced my creative imagination more than any other activity I have ever pursued. I'm now in my eighth decade of living, and I still read several hours a day. Why? When I can connect old information with new information, the combination of the two creates perspectives that could never have been achieved otherwise. New information makes new and fresh ideas possible.

I read for the aha moments, the information that makes a light bulb go off in my head. I want to put information in my mind that will be the most beneficial to me, my family, and my fellow man, financially, morally, spiritually, and emotionally. I seldom read anything that is not of a factual nature because I want to invest my time wisely in the things that will improve my life. Don't misunderstand: there is nothing wrong with reading purely for the joy of it. Novels have their place, but biographies of famous men and women contain information that can change lives. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale's The Power of Positive Thinking changed my thought processes. The Bible changed my believing. Ultimately, what I have read has changed my being.

If the aha! I get when I'm reading is not already reduced into one or two sentences, I'll take the essence of what I've read and chunk it into easily remembered bites of information. That information is what becomes "quotable." You would not sit still for me to read to you every book I've ever read. But if you're the least bit like me, you'll jump at the chance to bypass all the churning and scoop the cream right off the top. That is what quotes are—the cream of our learning.
