On subjects that are frivolous and profound, comical and austere, spiritual and mundane, the editors have lovingly gathered together the sayings of figures as diverse as HP, Descartes, and Confucius; Mahatma Gandhi, Neruda, and Marx; and Oscar Wilde and Napoleon Bonaparte. Whether Indian, Greek, Muslim, or Jewish; Roman, Chinese, Russian, or African, the themes explore universal ideas—love, hubris, mortality, and the nature of wisdom itself. The musings of the celebrated philosophers, the heroic insights of those whom history has chosen not to record, and the epigrams, declarations, and proverbs contained in these pages—small, bright gems of wisdom from every continent, from every faith, and from every age—will stay with you.
