Thousands of words of wisdom, humor, and life-changing amazingness from The NYT dubbed "information archaeologist."
The right quotation can change your life. That compressed idea - expressed in just a few words, a sentence or two - can shift your thinking, trigger an epiphany, or alter your way of seeing the world. The wisest and most experienced people in history have left behind these thought-bombs - at turns surprising, jolting, discomforting, and comforting insights about living a full, unbridled life, questioning authority and reality, relating to fellow humans, creating, risking, loving, living with uncertainty, and staying sane in an insane world.

Poets, philosophers, scientists, musicians, artists, presidents, activists, and more rub shoulders in this smartly designed book, giving us the benefit of their hard-earned wisdom, breakthroughs, breakdowns, bad choices, sudden illuminations, and lightning wit. Sharing some of life's most important lessons are William Blake and Bruce Lee, Abraham Lincoln and Lorrie Moore, Fyodor Dostoevsky and Terence McKenna, René Magritte and St. Teresa of Avila, Zelda Fitzgerald and Bob Marley, and dozens more.
The quotations are arranged neatly into these topics: Reality, Truth, and Such Things, Living, Love, Well-Being, Self, Others, Art, Lit, and Creativity, Authority and Institutions, The Big Picture.
