Book of Notable Quotes

textures 003

A friend passed on some books to me this week. Included among them was one titled Noted Quotables published by World Book Encyclopedia, Inc.(1986). It is a selection of famous quotes compiled by Jerry Reedy organised by themes. I know we can find any number of quotes on the internet but sometimes it is good to hold a book in my hands!

Here are some examples:

Theme – Ability “Everyone must row with the oars he has.” (English proverb)

Theme – Adversity “Prosperity getteth friends, but adversity trieth them.” (Nicholas Ling)

Theme – Anger “The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn’t angry enough.” (Bede Jarrett)

Theme: Bravery “Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.” (Gen. Omar Nelson Bradley)

There are lots more and I may just include some more in a later post :)!
