Civilization's Quotations: Life's Ideal

Capa
Richard Alan Krieger
Algora Publishing, 2007 - 344 páginas
These 8,000 clever and insightful sayings, organized by theme, will enrich the prose of writers, public speakers and anyone seeking to lead or persuade. It also provides a wealth of inspirational affirmations to guide us in our lives. Chinese proverbs, Roman maxims and the wisdom of writers from William Penn to Kahlil Gibran cover themes from humility and patience to courage, will and action. The topics are arranged in a sequence that begins with birth and progresses through the seasons of the "Ideal Life." When possible, each quotation flows into the next one so that the whole section reads almost like a speech given by one person. In other sections, one quotation plays off another, creating a lively discussion amongst the authors.

Richard Krieger sent me this book years ago and I never got around to reviewing it. But my daughter Kelsey just spent half an hour reading it and says it's very good. She likes the fact that it has a lot of good quotations and the way that the quotations are categorized. Ler crítica na íntegra
