The Quotable Founding Fathers

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 Entrepreneur

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

James Bond - Licence to Quote

The Quotable 007

Author: Colin M. Jarman

Publisher: N.A

Category: Humor

Page: 210

View: 3631

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).

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

This book makes punctuation more fun and easier to learn than traditional approaches do. It teaches the natural way, by example: each lesson begins with quotes that exemplify good punctuation and sentence structure. Quotations are humorous and informative, drawn from the words of notable figures--Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Jerry Seinfeld, Taylor Swift, Beyonc�, Jennifer Lawrence, and many others. Short essays accompany each lesson, showing how each punctuation mark originated and how its use has altered over time. Correct punctuation is vital for clear, accurate, and natural writing. Anyone preparing a course assignment, applying for a job or for college admission, or doing any other formal writing needs to know the standard conventions of punctuation. Yet many people have never been taught how to punctuate. A necessary addition to any writer's bookshelf, this enjoyable book will teach readers to punctuate effectively and confidently--through over 500 memorable quotes and clear explanations of the rules.
