Words from personalities ranging from William Blake to Warren Buffett on all topics imaginable, serve to elevate and inspire. The great majority of the quotations in this book are pithy, often humorous and sardonic, but always containing an interesting perspective on life, conduct, and achievement. Quotations for the Fast Lane: "I have great faith in fools - my friends call it self-confidence." Edgar Allan Poe "It is better to be approximately right than precisely wrong." Warren Buffett "The last refuge of the insomniac is a sense of superiority to the sleeping world." Leonard Cohen
