LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' is the first book of humorous quotations solely dedicated to the ever-expanding universe surrounding James Bond. This book does not include quotes from the Bond books or films, but uniquely focuses on the funny comments made about 007. LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' is all over the lighter side of James Bond: his life, books & movies, enemies & lovers, cars, guns & gadgets. LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' turns the tables on the world's favourite spy and turns the spotlight on him. A Who's Who of observers and commentators take dead aim at James Bond: man & myth, super-star & super-spy, legend & legerdemainiac. Comical contributions come from his creators, biographers, critics, imitators, fans and from a selection of media sources including film, TV, websites, newspapers, magazines, and books. The depth and diversity of this source material aptly demonstrates the unrivalled level of recognition and the extraordinary fan-base James Bond has built up since he first appeared in 1953. For well over 50 years, 007 has been at the summit of the best-seller's list, at the top of the cinema box-office and remains at the forefront of the world's consciousness. His iconic image and cultural footprint are legendary: LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' celebrates that legend. This second edition has been published to add quotations - to the original publication (2010) - to take account of ... the latest Bond film Skyfall (2012), the 2011 Bond novel Carte Blanche from Jeffery Deaver, plus William Boyd's 2013 novel Solo, and Bond's spectacular appearance at the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics (2012).

365 Inspiration Quotes for Entrepreneurs

For an entrepreneur, Entrepreneurship is a more than way of life; it is a religion. Amazingly there was, until now, no collection of inspirational quotes for entrepreneurs. (They always seemed to be a footnote in big books and were not selected by entrepreneurs, that's for sure!) As an entrepreneur myself, I had collected these quotes over the years to keep me cheerful. One Holiday Season, I decided to pull them all together into a book to give my entrepreneur friends for whom I couldn't afford to buy a present. Years later, I went to visit an entrepreneur friend I had lost contact with and he still had a copy of this book on his bedside table, with coffee rings on it. He said he liked to read a few quotations every evening just before he went to sleep. That's when I realized that other entrepreneurs like you might find these quotes useful. This is that book. PS. For more inspirational quotes for entrepreneurs, check out my other book "Shake the Damned Tree!" Best of entrepreneurial luck! Jack

The Quotable Feynman

"Some people say, ‘How can you live without knowing?' I do not know what they mean. I always live without knowing. That is easy. How you get to know is what I want to know."—Richard P. Feynman Nobel Prize–winning physicist Richard P. Feynman (1918–88) was that rarest of creatures—a towering scientific genius who could make himself understood by anyone and who became as famous for the wit and wisdom of his popular lectures and writings as for his fundamental contributions to science. The Quotable Feynman is a treasure-trove of this revered and beloved scientist's most profound, provocative, humorous, and memorable quotations on a wide range of subjects. Carefully selected by Richard Feynman's daughter, Michelle Feynman, from his spoken and written legacy, including interviews, lectures, letters, articles, and books, the quotations are arranged under two dozen topics—from art, childhood, discovery, family, imagination, and humor to mathematics, politics, science, religion, and uncertainty. These brief passages—about 500 in all—vividly demonstrate Feynman's astonishing yet playful intelligence, and his almost constitutional inability to be anything other than unconventional, engaging, and inspiring. The result is a unique, illuminating, and enjoyable portrait of Feynman's life and thought that will be cherished by his fans at the same time that it provides an ideal introduction to Feynman for readers new to this intriguing and important thinker. The book features a foreword in which physicist Brian Cox pays tribute to Feynman and describes how his words reveal his particular genius, a piece in which cellist Yo-Yo Ma shares his memories of Feynman and reflects on his enduring appeal, and a personal preface by Michelle Feynman. It also includes some previously unpublished quotations, a chronology of Richard Feynman's life, some twenty photos of Feynman, and a section of memorable quotations about Feynman from other notable figures. Features: Approximately 500 quotations, some of them previously unpublished, arranged by topic A foreword by Brian Cox, reflections by Yo-Yo Ma, and a preface by Michelle Feynman A chronology of Feynman's life Some twenty photos of Feynman A section of quotations about Feynman from other notable figures Some notable quotations of Richard P. Feynman: "The thing that doesn't fit is the most interesting." "Thinking is nothing but talking to yourself inside." "It is wonderful if you can find something you love to do in your youth which is big enough to sustain your interest through all your adult life. Because, whatever it is, if you do it well enough (and you will, if you truly love it), people will pay you to do what you want to do anyway." "I'd hate to die twice. It's so boring."

The Quotable Founding Fathers

ISBN: 1612342876

Page: 352

View: 5516

No group is quoted--and misquoted--more often than America's founders. When a political controversy heats up, the nation's speechwriters, politicians, reporters, editorial writers, and talking heads try to influence the debate by quoting their words. Year in and year out, teachers and political buffs look to their wisdom to illuminate the issues. How much easier it would be to find every key quote by the founders in a single source. The Quotable Founding Fathers, edited by Buckner F. Melton, Jr., provides just that source--a compilation of some 2,500 quotes summing up the wit and wisdom of the founders. While some of these quotations can be found in general quotation compilations such as Bartlett's, these volumes offer only a fraction of what's available. The Quotable Founding Fathers mines deeper into the founders' essays, diaries, letters, speeches, and sermons to extract all the nuggets that are significant to the history of the country-- and to the ongoing debate about the meaning of democracy in America.

The Quotable Kierkegaard

"Why I so much prefer autumn to spring is that in the autumn one looks at heaven--in the spring at the earth."--Søren Kierkegaard The father of existentialism, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a philosopher who could write like an angel. With only a sentence or two, he could plumb the depths of the human spirit. In this collection of some 800 quotations, the reader will find dazzling bon mots next to words of life-changing power. Drawing from the authoritative Princeton editions of Kierkegaard's writings, this book presents a broad selection of his wit and wisdom, as well as a stimulating introduction to his life and work. Organized by topic, this volume covers notable Kierkegaardian concerns such as anxiety, despair, existence, irony, and the absurd, but also erotic love, the press, busyness, and the comic. Here readers will encounter both well-known quotations ("Life must be understood backward. But then one forgets the other principle, that it must be lived forward") and obscure ones ("Beware false prophets who come to you in wolves' clothing but inwardly are sheep--i.e., the phrasemongers"). Those who spend time in these pages will discover the writer who said, "my grief is my castle," but who also taught that "the best defense against hypocrisy is love." Illuminating and delightful, this engaging book also provides a substantial portrait of one of the most influential of modern thinkers. Gathers some 800 quotations Drawn from the authoritative Princeton editions of Kierkegaard's writings Includes an introduction, a brief account and timeline of Kierkegaard's life, a guide to further reading, and an index

View: 5529

C. G. Jung (1875–1961) was a preeminent thinker of the modern era. In seeking to establish an interdisciplinary science of analytical psychology, he studied psychiatry, religion, mysticism, literature, physics, biology, education, and criminology. He introduced the concepts of extraversion and introversion, and terms such as complex, archetype, individuation, and the collective unconscious. He stressed the primacy of finding meaning in our lives. The Quotable Jung is the single most comprehensive collection of Jung quotations ever assembled. It is the essential introduction for anyone new to Jung and the Jungian tradition. It will also inspire those familiar with Jung to view him in an entirely new way. The Quotable Jung presents hundreds of the most representative selections from the vast array of Jung's books, essays, correspondence, lectures, seminars, and interviews, as well as the celebrated Red Book, in which Jung describes his own fearsome confrontation with the unconscious. Organized thematically, this collection covers such topics as the psyche, the symbolic life, dreams, the analytic process, good and evil, creativity, alchemical transformation, death and rebirth, the problem of the opposites, and more. The quotations are arranged so that the reader can follow the thread of Jung’s thought on these topics while gaining an invaluable perspective on his writings as a whole. Succinct and accessible, The Quotable Jung also features a preface by Judith Harris and a detailed chronology of Jung’s life and work. The single most comprehensive collection of Jung quotations ever assembled Features hundreds of quotes Covers such topics as the psyche, dreams, good and evil, death and rebirth, and more Includes a detailed chronology of Jung’s life and work Serves as the ideal introduction to Jung and the Jungian tradition
