The words of the wise, famous, or simply experienced, can have a profound impact upon the behaviors and attitudes of others. Often, we underestimate the impressions made by carefully chosen words; words that have the power to embolden, encourage, uplift, and motivate one to greatness. With these concepts in mind, I have undertaken the task of composing this book with the intent to inspire young people to make better choices in their daily interactions with others. This will help build strong, permanent character traits that will help guide them to success and happiness. Throughout this written work are direct quotes of learned individuals, whose opinions and philosophies have spanned generations, yet have lost none of their intrinsic value as words to live by. The purpose behind using quotes is two-fold: 1.) To supplement the lesson being taught, and 2.) to inspire the reader to pay close attention to the words of others; in effect, to be an effective listener. I might also stress that, the quality of some one else’s words is not determined by whether they are famous or not. Wisdom can be harvested from the most humble of individuals, as well as the most celebrated. It is not confined to those known for the greatest intellect, but it is found within a vast array of socio-economic circles - among the great and the small. What matters most is whether one’s words are meaningful and if they can be of beneficial to others. If you would like more information about these programs, visit www.thequote-online.com.
