From the Publisher
Abounding Wisdom and Abounding Love are collections of quotes that
Dr. M. Scott Peck personally selected and arranged according to his
unique perspective, which combines knowledge of medicine,
psychiatry, and theology. He selected quotes that he believes
provide an intelligent overview on the subjects of love and
wisdom-in particular, quotes that made him think.Dr. Peck's
insightful introductions add even greater meaning to the already
provocative quotes. "We can love virtually anyone if we put our
minds to it," writes Dr. Peck. "But there is little that is warm
and bubbly about it. Liking or affection is primarily a feeling;
love is primarily a matter of decision and action."Many people
believe they'll gain wisdom by studying everything around them,
such as history, art, nature, and life. In Abounding Wisdom, Dr.
Peck teaches us that wisdom comes primarily through an
understanding of God's spirit, by opening the way to God's grace .
. . and by study. "Certain people seem to be almost born with an
instinct for wisdom," he writes. "On the other hand, I believe that
wisdom can be learned, but only by thinking about the challenges
and experiences of our lives."
