I washt expecting this little book to be that good . I have bought other similar books in the past and i thought to try this one as well and i have not regret it . This book covers so many topics like relationships , self-help , nature of life , virtues etc . Let me give you some of my favorite quotes included in this book : -There's one thing worse than being alone:wishing you were . -Know yourself . Dont accept your dog's admiration as a conclusive evidence that you are wonderful .
-Often we change jobs , friends and spouses , instead of ourselves . -A man cant ride your back unless its bent. -We all live under the same sky but we dont have the same horizon .
Good money value . 5 star rating no doubt .

I have read and collected quotes for 21 years and I look forward each month to "Quotable Quotes" in Reader's Digest. This book is a GREAT collection form this monthly magazine. I like the compact size and hope Reader's Digest issues other editions.

If you need a book with amazing quotes to use in your scrapbooks this is the book for you. Tons of great quotes and they are even indexed so if you just want a quote on family or babies you can find them. Every time I bring this book to a crop the whole place wants to look up sayings. FABOO!

For some reason, I have always thought of Reader's Digest as "lite" on literary value; I picked up Reader's Digest's Quotable Quotes based only on strong recommendations from a friend. Otherwise, I would have passed it over in favor of a book on "heartwarming expressions" made specifically for scrapbookers, as that was my purpose for hunting up quotable material.
I didn't expect the range of authors quoted here to be as wide and as richly reperesentative as it is. There are contemporary writers, classic authors, ancient proverbs from all over the world, religious sayings, and truisms from historical figures and current celebrities (although very little from the Bible, which surprised me). The topics these quotes cover are also varied on aspects of life. Take a look at the table of contents:
Within Ourselves
People Together
Our Better Side
For Better or Worse
When We Act
The Art of Conversation
Civilization's Gift
The Nature of Life
The Natural World
The World of Nations
Despite being brief and, ahem, digestible, this book manages to touch upon ideas and beliefs examined from several angles, some of them droll and humorous. In any event, a deliberate reading of Quotable Quotes will provide food for thought and could spark quite a few conversations in your household. Come to think of it, this book of quotes is almost like a short course in world philosophy!
I'm glad that I went for a more general-purpose book of quotes now, as it will have myriad uses aside from being a great source for my scrapbook pages.

This wonderful compilation from Reader's Digest was given to me as a gift, and the gift is the wisdom, insight, and inspiration that came from people from many lands, heritages, and walks of life. The quotes in this book cover the gamut of life. Here below are just a few of my favorites:
"You don't stop laughing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop laughing." - Michael Pritchard
"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves." - Carl G. Jung
"The very essence of leadership is that you have a vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet." - Theodore Hesburgh
"To err is human; to admit it is superhuman." - Doug Larson
"To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly." - Henri Bergson
"The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together." - Robert C. Dodds
This book makes a wonderful gift for anyone who needs quotes for any reason, or even to just soak up the wisdom within. Highly useful, and wise!
Enjoy! Barbara Rose, author of `If God Was Like Man'

In this small book - about 200 pages - you'll find few thousand quotes for just about any occasion - to spice up your writings, your speeches or simply to enjoy their wit and wisdom.

Here are some examples:

"While forbidden fruit is said to taste sweeter, it usually spoils faster." - Abitail Van Buren

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"Nothing ever built arose to touch the skies unless some man dreamed that it should, some man believed that it could, and some man willed that it must." - Charles Kettering

"The human capacity to fight back will always astonish doctors and philosophers. It seems, indeed, that there are no circumstances so bad and no obstacles so big that man cannot conquer them." - Jean Tetreau

"It is one of the beautiful compensations in this life that no one can sincerely try to help another without helping himself."

- Charles Dudley Warner

"Serendipity is looking in a haystack for a needle and discovering a farmer's daughter" - Julius Comroe Jr.
