Do you think quotes can influence daily decisions? Can they offer us guidance? Do people just read them and forget them, or do you have certain ones you have framed on your wall? Written on post-it notes and stuck to the fridge or the bathroom mirror? I think we all have favorites. One of mine is "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve". This was written by Napoleon Hill.
Even George Carlin, who is best noted for some really crude comedy, had several memorable quotes. One of my favorites was "A house is just a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff."
Patty and Jonathan Crowe have published a book titled Mankind's Greatest Quotes. I'm not sure how they determined these quotes are the greatest, but they certainly are inspirational. They say:
Throughout the ages, man has been engaged upon a quest for knowledge. Generation upon generation of man have endeavored to discover the truths which make man honorable and life worth living. In that same tradition of humanity, the greatest of these philosophers have sought as well to pass along what wisdom they have discovered that others may live a happier life and that mankind's chances for survival be enhanced. This book contains 2500 years of man's greatest wisdom, passed on in that same tradition of humanity that others may share in that wisdom.
If you're new to be fifty plus and alone, you might find it beneficial to have a book handy with some positive motivational quotes that you can refer to on occasion. This book is being offered for free today as part of an Amazon promotion, so I would urge you to click here and download it now while you can. After this promotion the regular cost of the book will be back up to $11.95.
With all the negative things happening, with the GMO Protection Act, and corruption running rampant in the government -- it bring to mind another favorite George Carlin quote: "By and large, language is a tool for concealing the truth."
Sometimes it certainly seems this way, but Mankind's Greatest Quotes seems to contain a lot of wisdom... so words can also be used to reveal the truth.
