Every so often a book comes along that you just love. It is a book that you want for yourself and you want it to be the gift you give to others. Start your Christmas shopping now. Allen Klein has given us a perfect little book with a foreward by Jack Canfield, author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul.”
This book of quotes “Change your life! a little book of big ideas” is arranged in such a way that you can start just about anywhere and find thoughts that are meaningful.
I went immediately to the ‘L’s looking for love — and instead I found forgiveness.”One forgives to the degree that one loves.” La Rochefoucauld. The L’s in this book are about learning to forgive and life’s journey.
Then I went to the O’s and it was “Overcoming obstacles. “What the caterpiller calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” Richard Bach.
I went to the Es and there I found, “Embrace change. Enjoy today.”
So often people tell me how much they fear change. We so often say that “Change even for the better is difficult” But in this little book change becomes something to welcome — in love and marriage.
From the Talmud: “And if not now, when?”
For the man in your life
I often suggest leaving little love notes for your husband or partner. While these are not love quotes, they are love notes of inspiration. What man won’t love this quote from Yogi Berra?
“The game is suppose to be fun.
If you have a bad day, do’t worry about it.
You can’t exxpect to get a hit every game.” Yogi Berra
What about this one from Wayne Gretsky? “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
It is no surprise that this little gem comes from Viva Editions – Change Your Life!
One last quote that is worth remembering and repeating often:
“Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.” Ruth Ann Schabacker
