To the benefit of all of us, the world is filled with wise and virtuous people. Though many of them seem ordinary, they are all around us. This book is about some of them and the timeless bits of wisdom they have offered to us. It is not, however, a tribute to their inspiration and spirit. It is about that which they offered our world and how they so innocently were able to change it.
To accomplish this, the author examines some of our most treasured virtues and uses fascinating (and often suspenseful), true-life stories to demonstrate the meaning and value of virtuosity within our society. Following each story, the author provides an array of thought-provoking quotes from the famous and the obscure. This book will rekindle your faith in humanity, restore your belief in the greatness of human character, and ignite the flame of morality inside you. You will find it educational as well as entertaining. Here is what a few readers have said about Virtues & the Virtuous:
“At a time when many look to works of fiction for comfort or distraction, or imaginary characters for strengths and pronouncements, Gene’s work is a welcome reminder that the best of who we are is found among all of us. The reminders of character, courage, and conviction are a welcome read, as are the well written stories of regular people reflecting extraordinary traits and accomplishing so much in the face of challenge.” —Robert J. Feldhake, Esq., Attorney
“A truly inspirational read for folks of all ages and from all walks of life. Gene’s unique writing style reaches to the depths of our inner being and leaves us with the notion we are all capable of great and wondrous accomplishments when either given the opportunity or faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges.” —Richard Corona, Banker
“As a lifelong educator, this book has a real place in the classrooms for today’s children. Wonderful narratives, reminders of other’s words, and the author’s own insights provide the reader with optimism, hope, and an appreciation for the gifts we all have to share.” —Maria J. O’Neill, MS.ED., Principal and Educator
Virtues & the Virtuous: Inspiring Lesson and Insights about Virtue, Virtuosity, and the Essence of the Human Spirit transcends culture, borders, race, and religion. This book will change the way you view the world and people around you. Regardless of your age, gender, or faith, this book will lift your spirit and entertain you. And when finished reading it, you will want to share it with everyone you know. More praise:
“What an impressive and entertaining read Virtues is. I love the stories in each chapter and being surprised by who they were about. The endless lists of quotes on each virtue is both inspiring and meditative. This is a great gift for anyone!” —Pamela Snyder, Conventions Specialist
“Three decades as a professional educator have taught me the importance of providing students with positive, inspirational stories and quotes. Mr. Ferraro’s Virtues and the Virtuous provides a unique resource for those educators, parents, and caring individuals wanting to spark positive behavior within our youth. Meaningful experiences occur when humanity embraces the insight and wisdom within the pages of Virtues and the Virtuous.” —Lu Royce, Public School Educator “
