Description

With over six thousand entries, this amazingly comprehensive collection can make anyone sound as smart as Einstein, Plato, or Shakespeare. Join hundreds of other travelers among life's highway as they share their pearls of hard-won wisdom. All of the major issues in life are covered including life, death, war, peace, truth, beauty, and then some. Whatever challenge you find yourself facing can be combated with ease with The Smartest Things Ever Said about Everything, organized by subjects arranged in alphabetical order. The real key to wisdom is not having all the right answers, but being able to ask the right questions. Unquenchable curiosity is what differentiates the world's greatest minds from the uninspired. The big questions in life always remain constant: - Who are we?
- Why are we here?
- Where are we going? The greatest questions in life of course have no right or wrong answers. Every wise thought has another equally wise thought that expresses the total opposite point of view. To juggle conflicting attitudes of the same topic can be seen as understanding; to reconcile those attitudes is wisdom in the deepest sense. With words of wisdom from Confucius, Mark Twain, and Homer Simpson, The Smartest Things Ever Said about Everything will make the perfect gift for anyone looking to their intellectual heroes for the answers to universe's toughest questions.
