A classic treasury of inspiration featuring hundreds of passages and quotations—selected from the wisdom of the ages—offering invaluable insight and guidance on the challenges of daily life.

Here are not only the best of the world’s most inspiring thoughts and ideas, but the stories behind them: how they came to be written and what their impact has been on others. A storehouse of inspired and inspiring reading, it is a collection of brief, stimulating biographies as well. There are selections from John Burroughs, Alfred Tennyson, Robert Browning, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, William Cullen Bryant, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Shakespeare, Hippocrates, Confucius, and many others. A distillation of the greatest thoughts, ideas, and philosophies that have been handed down to us through the ages, this is a book to turn to over and over again—a book of moral, spiritual, and ethical guidance—an unfailing source of comfort and inspiration for all.

Review:

Being a great fan of Dr.Kalam, i bought this book. Obviously it is great and excellent. Every page has a message and moral. This book is for people who have a great thirst for achievement in life.Forget the past,set new goals and achieve them.!! --Loganathan on Apr 16, 2012

Anyone who wants everyday dosage of inspiration they can randomly open a page and they will be filled with enthusiasm and great energy. This book is a collection of several stories of person who made mistake and finally realize their mistake and get over their life. Someone said:"Your life is not so long to make mistake and learn from them so its better learn from others mistake." A good dose for depression patient. --Sharad Kiyal on Aug 17, 2012

As the name suggests, it is indeed ideas from several distinguished people and sources and a great way to inspire oneself.... I'd say I had related a lot to Thoreau and found myself at peace reading this delight. I must convey my sincere regards to Dr. Kalam for setting out the name of this book in his interview. Thoreau says " What means the most common , most universal fact - that some soul that has lost all inspiration for itself, can inspire in another listening soul, an immense confidence even while it is expressing it's despair" Salut, salut salut...to all the great thinkers and those who endeavour to make a difference to other people's lives --Sidhartha Panda on Mar 1, 2015
