Change Happens: A Compendium of Wisdom

We rated this book:


There are many versions of the saying that change is inevitable, and we are all aware that change certainly is continually happening. In this delightful compendium, siblings Kathryn and Ross Petras have assembled a collection of thoughtful expressions of how change is perceived. Beautifully outlined with delightful illustrations, these appealing quotes are arranged under an alphabet of 26 topics. The section with the letter A might include statements dealing with acceptance, H with hard facts, and S with surprises, down to the 26th letter, Z, for zero hour. Quotes by Hawking, Confucius, Lincoln, Van Gogh, Warhol, Cleaver and so many other philosophers, writers, physicists, activists, musicians, poets, artists, etc. display the varied outlooks and thoughts of viewing this world. Answer the question of what you would do if you weren’t afraid, or might you think like Aristotle that change in all things is sweet, or, as Eleanor Roosevelt observed, that in a very real sense, tomorrow is now. Filled with hundreds of words of wisdom, this delightful book holds myriad mirrors reflecting thoughts about our ever-changing realm. As a reference for witty quips and/or as a clever gift, this selection makes a wise choice.
