1001 Quotations to Enlighten, Entertain, & Inspire
The Stories Behind the Most Memorable QuotesBook - 2016
An invaluable tool for public speaking, writing, and anyone wishing to make a memorable impact with or be inspired by words, this handsomely illustrated volume is conveniently organized to facilitate finding the perfect words for any occasion. This is the perfect book for those looking for words from great thinkers and speakers in order to make a point, plead a case, or justify an opinion, to honor, glorify, or motivate others, or even for their own personal inspiration. Filled with multicultural aphorisms, adages, and axioms from numerous brilliant minds throughout the past 7,000 years and featuring more than 800 full-color illustrations, this latest addition to the best-selling 1001 series makes accessible a vast range of complex ideas from the ancient and classical era to the present. The book draws from varied fields including art, architecture, business, ecology, economics, education, law, literature, music, philosophy, politics, psychology, religion, science, and technology, and presents words of wisdom and inspiration from a wide array of cultural figures--from ancient sages such as Plato, Basho, Sun Tzu, and Ibn Battuta through the Renaissance and Enlightenment greats like Galileo, Copernicus, Goethe, and Newton to the icons of the present era, including Nelson Mandela, Gloria Steinem, Andy Warhol, Virginia Woolf, Oprah Winfrey, and Mark Zuckerberg. While many of the quotations have been published previously, 1001 Quotations To Enlighten, Entertain, & Inspire is the first book to be fully illustrated (with images of the quotations' originators), and draws on a truly global, multicultural range of thinkers from ancient times to the present.
