A collection of over 800 original and pithy sayings covering 275 topics that delve deep into your subconscious.
"Culture is to know the best that has been said and thought in the world," observed Mathew Arnold. There exists a vast ocean of inspirational thoughts from great minds, and it is indeed very difficult to pick the pearls from its depths.
However, a sincere attempt has been made in this book to include gems of wisdom from as many different sources as possible, selected for their inspirational value, particularly for the young souls.
It is hoped that the teaching fraternity and the student community will welcome this volume of really inspiring thoughts.
This is not just another book of quotations. It is a book of inspiration - an excellent collection of sublime, inspiring thoughts and words of exalted wisdom.
Noble thoughts form the seeds of great deeds. Sublime thoughts of great men show us the path to an ideal and idealistic life.
This is a volume not to be read once and laid aside. To benefit from its contents, the significance of the ideas and ideals featured should be pondered over and integrated into one's life to the extent possible.
Besides, this treasury of wisdom highlights the aristocracy of the intellect and supremacy of the spirit and unveils the majesty of great minds.
The thoughts have been culled from a wide range of sources, Indian as well as Western, making this a truly universal compendium.
