Sure to inspire and enlighten, this handy volume of 100 great principles to live by is a revelation at any age, but an especially great graduation present.
Not your typical lackluster—and might we add heavy—book of quotes, EVERYTHING I’VE LEARNED is a practical volume rich in words to live by: words that are sometimes quirky, definitely wise, and always right on target. Readers will learn from such luminaries as Theodore Roosevelt, John Wayne, Joan Baez, and even the prolific Anonymous, and realize that life is about seizing the day, living in the moment, and being true to oneself. Divided into eight categories, the principles here include such practical wisdom as “Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut” (Ernest Hemingway) and familiar, but time-tested, words to live by like “Know thyself” (The Delphic Oracle).
