Words from the Wise: Over 6,000 of the Smartest Things Ever Said (Hardcover)
When faced with life's greatest quandaries, there's just one place to go for advice: all your beloved heroes and heroines. These 6,000 thought-provoking quotations cover almost every imaginable dilemma and come from writers like Confucius, Horace, Shakespeare, Twain, and Austen; modern figures such as Andy Rooney and Meryl Streep; and fictional TV favorites Homer Simpson and Chandler Bing. Need help when considering a new look? Jim Morrison warns: "Some of the worst mistakes of my life have been haircuts." Want to know if a new relationship is going to work out? Oscar Wilde can tell you, "When you really want love you will find it waiting for you." Arranged alphabetically, this wordfest encompasses everything from attraction to zen, cats to dogs, and politics to religion.
