Overview

There's a fresh take on an old standby, the book of quotations. The difference with Wisdom for the Soul is in the selection and organization of the quotations. Each has been chosen for its universal application and poetic quality, grouped into one of 220 themes. While the usual subjects are represented, the collection encompasses newer psychological territory such as Actualization, Avoidance/Denial, Chaos/Uncertainty, Polarity, Synergy, Unconscious, and more.

Every major author of philosophy, metaphysics and spirituality is represented. Although the primary aim of the collection is self-help for the individual, with extensive cross-references to factors that foster or deter growth and well-being, the material will appeal to the quotation collector, speech-writer, and the general reader.

    An incredible collection of quotes and wisdom

    It's almost unfathomable how a single human being was able to compile all of this material from so many sources and organize it so carefully and thoughtfully. The world owes Larry Chang a huge thank you. Any time you want to know what some of the greatest minds of world history have had to say on practically any subject you can think of, from A to Z, it's all in alphabetical order. Over 800 pages worth. Simply incredible.
