Never before have the open secrets of both East and the West been so close to one's fingertips. Huddled in the forthcoming pages are not token authors from the "other" side of the world, but a balanced collection of unearthed gems to be found in any one quote book. Ideas born from both halves of our diminutive planet by the world's greatest thinkers-warriors, philosophers, poets, academics, saints, and prophets alike-who reflect, with us in tow, on such subjects as the nature of time, love, morality, beauty, success, the divine, and for that matter the very words we utter. It is in this exhaustive labor of love that you will find inspiration, wisdom, and words ripe for the proverbial picking.

From the Author:

As a child of both East and West, I started this book many years ago on my journey towards self-discovery. To my delight I discovered many of the secrets about the nature of humanity. Each quote, herein, is a piece of a jigsaw puzzle that when fitted together forms a picture of humanity's insights, discoveries and ambitions. I firmly believe that such an effort is especially important in today's world as demagogues, such as Donald Trump, are more interested in burning bridges than building them.
 
Born in the East are the written word, the foundations of science and math, alongside Confucius, Mandela, Tolstoy, Gandhi, Jesus, Moses, and Muhammad. Celebrated in the West are the Magna Carta, modern notions of individualism and democracy, as well as the expansion of scientific knowledge, which allows humans to shape their environment in extraordinary ways.

The open secrets -- those that sit in front of us and beg to be laid bare-- are often overlooked with our unease of the "other" and our hectic fast paced lives. Overlooked is the elegant truth that nations, much like individuals, have insights forged from centuries of history, struggle and debate.

Huddled in the forthcoming pages are the most diverse unearthed gems to be found in any one book. Ideas born from both halves of our diminutive planet, and by the world's greatest thinkers-- philosophers, poets, academics, saints, and prophets alike. They reflect, with us in tow, on the nature of time, love, morality, beauty, success, the divine and for that matter the very words we utter; what Steve Moore in the novelization of V for Vendetta, so fittingly describes as the "means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth."

It is in this exhaustive labor of love that you will find inspiration, wisdom, and words ripe for the proverbial picking.

Bon Appetite
