Sagittarians describe the natural Talents for honesty and travel in one chapter, addressing Challenges like foot-in-mouth disease and lack of focus in another.

Linda Goodman's Sun Signs has sold tens of millions of copies. Like Sun Signs, The Quotable Sagittarius is entertaining, introductory and accurate. The Quotable Sagittarius goes beyond Sun Signs by letting buyers zero in on the one sign that they're interested in. This new book describing the core Sagittarian personality makes a more interesting and informative read than a seasonal book offering the Sagittarian forecast for 2012. With lists of more than 150 Sagittarian artists, 75 leaders, 100 athletes and 150 famous relationships, The Quotable Sagittarius satisfies the reader interest in detail that's exemplified by Amazon's bestselling astrological item, The Secret Language of Birthdays.

Read an Excerpt

Sagittarius is the merriest zodiac sign, walking on the sunny side of the street, accenting the positives. Your rose-colored glasses help you glide over the petty irritations that preoccupy others.
The novel Pollyanna by Sagittarian Eleanor H. Porter describes newly-orphaned Pollyanna moving in with a dour spinster aunt. Pollyanna naively expects the best from each person she encounters. Her incessant cheerfulness converts the whole town to happier attitudes.

"When you look for the bad, expecting it, you will get it. When you know you will find the good, you will get that.”
--Eleanor H. Porter, born 12/19/1868
