Overview

He helped Presidents to inspire a generation.
Now he will inspire you.

James C. Humes has been collecting short, humorous, inspiring stories for years. He used them as a speechwriter for Presidents Reagan, Ford, and Nixon, who referred to Humes as his “quotesmaster general.” Now he shares them with you, for use in speeches, sermons, and daily meditations, but mostly for the sheer pleasure of reading.

Each story comes with accompanying Bible verse and is indexed by person, topic, and Scripture.

"James C. Humes has few peers as an historical scholar. From Winston Churchill to U. S. Presidents, he has time and again related the most appropriate anecdotes. We are lucky that he has agreed to correlate them in this book. It will make the reader a speech writer."
-Senator Ernest Hollings

"James C. Humes has a prodigious knowledge of history, of course. But what makes this collection a priceless asset is its author's keen insights into the qualities ordinary people call on to be great people -- and good people."
-The Rev. John H. Taylor, Executive Director
