Book Description

Do you love a good quotation? Quotations that inspire and motivate you. Wise and sometimes witty words can be the boost you need. Often little bits of written wisdom have resonance for us whether or not we recognize the source of the quotation.

Written Wisdom is a book of essays built around quotations. My sincere hope is that this will help you when you need a bit of support or encouragement. Sometimes, it will help you to persist, and, sometimes, perhaps it will help you accept that a situation "is what it is."

When writers use an insightful quotation in a blog post or article, it's like "kicking it up another notch." Call them quotations, aphorisms, proverbs, or what have you, they're universally accepted bits of wisdom that know no cultural or national boundaries.

Wisdom in my country is usually the same as wisdom in other countries. From centuries ago to present day, wise words still give us insight and can sometimes provide a respite from the storms of life with a much-needed laugh to brighten our day.

Witness the words of the late Randy Pausch in The Last Lecture: "Yes, I'm a great optimist, but, when trying to make a decision, I often think of the worst case scenario." An old Arab Prover says the same thing in a different way: "Trust in Allah, but tie your camels down."

Two quotations separated by centuries and by different cultures, but they each impart the same wisdom of being prepared.

Written Wisdom, compiled from the best of the quotation-inspired essays, 2005-2010, on SlingWords, a blog by best-selling ebook author Joan Reeves, will delight all who like a bit of wisdom and wit about persistence, inspiration, overcoming challenges, and goal achievement as well as insights about writing, reading, books, authors, and Life. That makes it a great resource for just about anyone.

Written Wisdom contains 86 quotation-inspired essays. Since many essays contain more than one quotation, and with the addition of her usual Quotation Collection as a Bonus Feature, there are many more than 150 quotations in all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't whisper - shout these words of wisdom! August 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having been a published author since 1978, I can tell you writing is a lonely, often thankless job. It's you, your brain and some days not much else. I once hung 10 rolls of wallpaper because I couldn't manage one word of wisdom or any other word that wasn't an expletive that I had to delete!

But Joan Reeves has put together a stunning assortment of wisdom that's useful even if you're not a writer. Many I've printed out in wide-Latin font and pasted to the shelf above my computer monitor.

Words of Wisdom is a comfort on so many levels and would be the perfect gift for any student/writer/mom/dad/grandparent - well, actually anyone!

So grab a cup of tea or coffee or something stronger and whispernet Words of Wisdom into your Kindle - you'll be glad you did.

More About the Author

JOAN REEVES, Bestselling eBook Author of sassy, sexy Contemporary Romance, began her career with New York traditional publishers. When the Amazon Kindle came along, she happily embraced a new career path as an independent author/publisher.

Her traditionally published novels have been published in half a dozen languages, and her indie published ebooks are available in English and in French through her publisher Bragelonne.

Her popular romantic comedies have made the Kindle Top 100 Paid List as well as being on various genre bestseller lists. You'll find her books available in audio (don't forget to WhisperSync for great reading flexibility), ebook, and print. (French editions in ebook and print.)

Joan makes her home in the Lone Star State with her hero, her husband. They have four kids who think they are adults and a ghost dog--all the ingredients for a life full of love and warmed by laughter. She lives the philosophy that is the premise of all of her romance novels: "It's never too late to live happily ever after."
