Word from the Wise by Rosemarie Jarski
Book Description'A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees,' as William Blake so aptly put it. What he probably meant, being a publisher and a printer himself, was that the wise man cuts down the tree and turns the resultant paper into a one-size-fits-all book packed with the sagest advice, quips and quotations from some of the wisest and funniest people whose counsel you could ever wish to hear. "A Word from the Wise" is a one-stop shop with over 6,000 quotes. It's a vast resource, but every one is a gem, from such knowledgeable souls as Hunter S Thompson, The Talmud, Dorothy Parker, and Daffy Duck. With each quote handily placed within every possible category you could think of, and with more quotes in every genre than anywhere else, "A Word From the Wise" is a must for anyone who thinks they could do with knowing a little bit or a lot more. 'A quotation at the right moment is like bread in a famine.' - The Talmud. 'Imagination is more important than knowledge.' - Albert Einstein. 'If you can count your money, you don't have a billion dollars.' - John Paul Getty. 'Violence is the repartee of the illiterate.' - George Bernard Shaw. 'Women who seek to be equal to men lack ambition.' - Timothy Leary. 'A narcissist is someone better-looking than you are.' - Gore Vidal.
