Book Review - Whatever You Are, Be A Good One
About the Book
A quote book like no other, this thought-provoking collection compiles the timeless wisdom of great original minds—from Marie Curie to Stephen King, Joan of Arc to Jack Kerouac, Oscar Wilde to Harriet Tubman—brilliantly hand-lettered by beloved indie artist Lisa Congdon. Readers will find enlightening insights (“Wisdom begins in wonder”— Socrates), stirring calls to action (“Leap and the net will appear”—John Burroughs), and stimulating encouragements (“Be curious, not judgmental”—Walt Whitman) beautifully illuminated on every page. Clever, offbeat, and endlessly inspiring, Whatever You Are, Be a Good One blends beautiful illustration and soul-satisfying insight into a smart little gem of a book.
My Take on the Book
Lisa Cogndon has compiled an anthology of 100 quotes from famous people. The quotes were as different as were the authors and subject matter. Here are a few of the ones in the book:
Ralph Waldo Emerson: It's not the length of the life. But the depth of the life.
Jean Massieu: Gratitude is the memory of the heart.
Charlotte Bronte: Life appears to me too short to be spent nursing animosity or registering wrongs.
So many quotes and I am sure you will find many who speak to you and your situation in your life. If you enjoy reading quotes, writing quotes, and sharing quotes with friends and family, I think you will enjoy reading this book by Lisa Cogndon.
