Editorial Reviews

An impossibly charming compendium of 100 wise and timeless thoughts from some of history's greatest minds, hand-lettered by Lisa Congdon. The common thread underpinning these quotes-which include such beloved luminaries as Albert Camus, Simone de Beauvoir, Henry James, Anne Lamott, Soren Kierkegaard, and Leo Tolstoy-is Congdon's own sensibility about what it means to live with kindness and integrity, to cherish beauty and the creative spirit, and ultimately to be a good human being."- Brain Pickings "Taking its title from a famous Abraham Lincoln quote, this beautifully hand-lettered book shares 100 inspirational quotations from great minds such as Oscar Wilde, George Eliot, and Walt Whitman. Revisit this colorful read whenever you need a pick-me-up-or a push-to get out there and make the most of your day." - Real Simple.com "Just right for a pick-me-up." - Fitness "
