Change Your Life: A Little Book of Big Ideas

Readers can take this book on the go to get a quick shot of inspiration at any time, or they can select one quote every day for in-depth thought and meditation. The book’s small size makes it ideal to carry in a purse or a bag, or to keep by the computer for those moments of need. However readers choose to use these uplifting and inspiring quotes, they all have the potential to be life-changing. The book features a foreword by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series.


Sample Quotes:

"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time like dew on the tip of a leaf. "
Rabindranath Tagore

"The one important thing I've learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and one's self seriously. The first is imperative; the second is disastrous."
Dame Margot Fonteyn

"The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp."
John Berry

"All animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it."
Samuel Butler

"Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things."
Robert Louis Stevenson

Professional Reviews

Roger Herman
Another quote book. Ever since Bartlett developed his dictionary of quotations, we've had a fascination with words mouthed by others. Seeking succinct and clever ways to communicate our thoughts, we enjoy citing perspectives taken by others. The result of our penchant for quotes is one book after another of the utterances of the famous and near-famous.

What makes this compendium any different from the rest of the quote books clamoring for our attention? In my opinion, there are two distinctions. First, the book is organized into sections that reflect the philosophy of Allen Klein, the quote collector. In his view, people can change their lives by understanding the actions speak louder than words. Life change strategies comprise the rest of the table of contents: Alter your attitude, be grateful, believe in miracles, cultivate kindness and compassion, dream the impossible dream, embrace change, enjoy today, forget failure. The list, a good list, goes on. Under each piece of advice as a heading, the reader finds insightful, inspiring, and thought-provoking quotes.

Another difference I discovered was the source of the quotes. What a wide range of resources! Anonymous is there, of course, accompanied by Martha Washington, Zig Ziglar, Golda Meier, Izaak Walton, Oral Roberts, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Walt Whitman. You'll learn from Mark Twain, William Penn, Bennett Cerf, and Mother Teresa. Eleanor Roosevelt, Walt Disney, Barbara Bush, and Donald Trump join Goethe, Carl Sandburg, Truman Capote, and Susan B, Anthony. Howard Cosell, Chester Nimitz, George Burns shares his wisdom, along with Helen Hayes, Stephen King, Richard Bach, Brian Tracy, Pope John Paul II, and Martin Luther King, Jr. What a collection!

Great reading for those empty moments that cry out for something to absorb intellectually. The book's size makes it easy to read in the bathroom, while waiting for your doctor, waiting for airplanes, or enjoying some private moments while dining alone at a restaurant. Here's a friend you can take along with you
