Description

A collection of quotations from notable Australians who have suffered major public defeats or setbacks, yet in some manner, carried the day. From Ned Kelly's words at his sentencing, to John Howard's famous 'Lazarus Act' in the mid-90s, this book is an entertaining reminder that when things look their bleakest, all may not be lost.show more
