Some wise educator said: "If you want to get a good, broad education, read books of quotations." This is especially true when they are well selected, as the compiler for this book has done. Many quotations have a person's lifetime of experience and wisdom packed into a tidbit of few words. For instance: "Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone" (Jim Fiebig.) Or from Brigitte Bardo: "It is sad to grow old but nice to ripen."
That's what I'm doing by reading this book, in bits of course--I'm ripening my wisdom! I'm sure you will too. This book is a bargain and worth keeping in your ebook library. I also love that Underwood typewriter photo on the cover--just like the one I had in my high school typing class. I'm also glad the first category in this collection is "Age." Once I get through that one, everything else will be easier. Except maybe for "Death"--"Some men are alive simply because it is against the law to kill them" (Edward W. Howe).
When you're ready with a sharp quotation, people will want to keep you around! So this book can prolong your life--or at least make it more enjoyable.
This book is a compulsory addition to any reference collection.
