White. A blank page or canvas. So many possibilities. -- Stephen Sondheim
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. -- Agatha Christie
There are flowers everywhere, for those who bother to look. -- Henri Matisse
This book has one of the best collections of great quotes from a vast group of famous and infamous people. The book is organized into six areas: Life and death and some of what happens in between, love and friendship, success, and ways to achieve it, the life of the mind, politics and politicians, and proverbial wisdom. The last section has a list of the individuals quoted in this book. The vast number of great writers, thinkers’ creative artists and statesmen quoted in this book will delight and enlighten you. The following are just a small sample you will find in this book:
“The world is full of magical things waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” Bertrand Russell
“Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.” Mark Twain
“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself.” Galileo Galilei
