Description

Abounding Wisdom and Abounding Love are collections of quotes that Dr. M. Scott Peck personally selected and arranged according to his unique perspective, which combines knowledge of medicine, psychiatry, and theology. He selected quotes that he believes provide an intelligent overview on the subjects of love and wisdom-in particular, quotes that made him think.Dr. Peck's insightful introductions add even greater meaning to the already provocative quotes. "We can love virtually anyone if we put our minds to it," writes Dr. Peck. "But there is little that is warm and bubbly about it. Liking or affection is primarily a feeling; love is primarily a matter of decision and action."Abounding Love sums up the most powerful, practical, and healing aspects of love. "Like all gifts, love is a mystery," he says. "There is power in it. Great power. The corniest quote I know is that 'Love makes the world go around.' It is also the only profound truth I know that is not a paradox." It is the ideal book for anyone searching for the true meaning of love-love of friends, family, neighbors, and the world at large.
