I absolutely adore this book! All of Kipfer's books would bring a smile to anyone's face, this is probably my favourite book of her's. It's a small and compact book so can be easily transported. There definitely is something for everyone of all ages and all walks of life. It does what it says on the tin, "8,789 Words of Wisdom" and I'd recommend it to anyone! Below are some quotes I collected from my first reading of it:

"Every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness"
"Try to make someone happy each and every day"
"You cannot preach what you practice until you practice what you preach"
"Cherish your children for what they are not for what you'd like them to be"
"Keep your soul young"
"Every garden will have a few weeds"
"You are your own example"
"Inner beauty will last longer than physical beauty"
"Sweep the dirt from your own front door and do not worry about your neighbours"
"Go where there is no trail and leave a path"

There's something for everyone, and all occasions, between the covers of this little jewel of a book.
It's compact, wise, witty, clever, incisive, positive ... if it's not already a "bestseller", it certainly deserves to be.
