What’s on your mind?
For many of us, everything seems to fall into place. We feel strong and confident—at least most of the time. And then there are days or even weeks that demand everything we’ve got, and more. Friends tell us to “stay positive,” but wouldn’t a little encouragement go further than clever advice?
Wisdom Quotes Illustrated is a fresh approach.
Take a quick look at the first picture. It shows a young woman from a tough nomadic society. Her face sends an unmistakable message: I believe in myself. The images in this book are strong, colorful, and direct. They back up the quotes with no room for misunderstanding.
Here are some of the topics . . .
Obsessing over what other people will think; believing that our differences make us better or worse than someone else; coping with defeat (it’s not the end of the line!); weathering the storms of life; and ruminating about the past.
So what’s in it for the reader?
Sometimes it’s crucial to focus all of our attention on achieving our objectives and reaching a destination. At others, it helps to step back and take a broader view. We tend overlook that life is a journey to be enjoyed in itself, as we travel. Wisdom Quotes Illustrated takes readers a step in that direction.
Targeted Age Group: 16-65
Life is like a gemstone. Let’s hold it under the light and watch it sparkle.
Born in Princeton, NJ, Philip Schmitz spent his formative decades in Salzburg, Austria. His exposure to a foreign culture exerted an enormous influence on his life.
As a professional translator, he has written well over a million words. Although much of his work was printed between the covers of books (12) and published online, it left him unsatisfied.
Wisdom Quotes Illustrated is his first attempt at publishing on the subjects that matter to him most: learning, developing, and changing; staying inspired and motivated; and cultivating a positive, optimistic frame of mind even–and especially–when difficult situations arise.
His goal is produce a series of books that will provide awareness and insight, and encourage personal growth.
Philip lives in Connecticut. When he’s not up to his neck in a translation or busily collecting quotes for his next book, he enjoys baking cakes and can found walking in the quiet recesses of nearby nature preserves.
