Words to comfort, amuse, enlighten, and above all, inspire: more than 485 pages of diverse quotations offer tasty food for thought. Arranged by category, the sayings cover such subjects as Beauty, Faith, Friendship, Fun & Play, Heroism, Imagination, Love, and many more. Some of the advice is basic and to the point: Sophie Tucker simply said, “Keep breathing.” On the subject of growing old, the ever-suave Maurice Chevalier insisted, “I prefer old age to the alternative.” Albert Einstein stated that “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” From St. Augustine to Tolstoy, Gandhi to Mae West, Muhammad Ali to Camille Paglia, the names are many and the thoughts are fascinating.
