Description - A Word From the Wise by Rosemarie Jarski

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 nar
