Timeless in their wisdom, thought-provoking in their message, surprising in their truth and memorable in their originality, the right words can give direction, inspiration, and sometimes a tangible boost onto the right path.

Think Later." is a collection of the greatest life wisdom from an unexpected group of speakers, doers, and thinkers. There are 618 rules to live by—funny, sly, declarative, thoughtful, offhanded, clever, and always profound: “Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.” —Roald Dahl “If everything is under control, you are going too slow.” —Mario Andretti “Never make a credit decision on a beach.” —Victor J. Boschini “Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.” —Samuel Beckett “The only time to eat diet food is while waiting for the steak to cook.” —Julia Child “What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight; build it anyway.” —Mother Teresa And: “Be yourself.

"Being Weird Is a Wonderful Thing"

"Being Weird Is a Wonderful Thing" Inspiration for Living Your Truest Self by Kathryn Petras & Ross Petras

A gift that celebrates being yourself, in your own unique way.   Do you ever feel different? A little weird, a little wacky? It’s time to own it, because, as Meryl Streep proclaimed, “what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength.” In this inspiring collection, singers, poets, actors, activists, comedians, designers, athletes, and philosophers share wise and pithy reflections on what it’s like to march to the beat of a different drummer. Every statement is a powerful, positive reminder that to live successfully is to be completely unapologetically you.   “We are not what other people say we are. We are who we know ourselves to be, and we are what we love. That’s OK.” —Laverne Cox   “All the colors I am inside have not been invented yet.” —Shel Silverstein   “I am different, not less” —Temple Grandin   “The more I feel imperfect, the more I feel alive.” —Jhumpa Lahiri   “Self-censorship is insulting to the self. Timidity is a hopeless way forward.” —Ai Weiwei

Dictionary of American Slang 4e

Dictionary of American Slang 4e by Barbara Ann Kipfer & Robert L. Chapman

We all know language changes rapidly, but to follow along requires an historical view. Chapman's Dictionary of American Slang, Fourth Edition, provides just what is needed to trace the language of today back to its American roots. And make no mistake––this is a dictionary that is purely American, the place where you can trace the development of the American language, in it's highly informal format known as "slang." Some would ask: "isn't the language changing so fast that this book is out of date the day on which it is published?" Although it is true that changes to the language, particularly slang, happen faster and faster in the electronic age, still there is a place for an authoritative, recognized work that keeps track of and compiles the language into an historical document, as this dictionary does. It is true that language changes very quickly; it is just as true that today's slang may be forgotten tomorrow. In recording the changing language, and sorting out what's here to stay from what's coming and quickly going, the Dictionary of American Slang serves a useful and important purpose.

The 48 Laws of Power Summary - Instant-Summary Cover Art

The 48 Laws of Power Summary

The 48 Laws of Power Summary Robert Greene - A Comprehensive Summary by Instant-Summary

The 48 Laws of Power: A Comprehensive Summary The desire for power is a fundamental human behavior. When one feels that he has no power over others or events, he is likely to be depressed. Everyone wants power. Those who pretend to have no desire for power are either deceiving themselves or attempting to deceive others. Power is like a drug that makes you stronger each time you taste it. The more you get, the more you want. Even though it is a fundamental human behavior, the desire for power is considered impolite and selfish. It is widely held that those who seek power must seem to have no interest in it, and on the contrary they must pretend to care only about others. The one who can disguise his pursuit of power with his care for others ends up becoming the most powerful. This seems paradoxical but the fact remains that you cannot honestly and forthrightly pursue power. You invariably have to disguise both your means and your ends. The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene is a collection of “laws” based on historical and philosophical anecdotes. These laws are amoral as they themselves don’t take into account any sense of right or wrong. Instead, the laws focus on how one can increase their influence over any situation, regardless of their moral consequences. This book explores the nuances of manipulating people around you for establishing power. The book focuses on how to gain power in any situation, regardless of whether it’s morally right or wrong, and it uses specific anecdotes from history to illustrate the “rules of power”. These laws may seem scandalously frank, but you can apply them without violating any of the strictures of public morality, which, according to Robert, is the way to get the best results. Here is a Preview of What You Will Get: ⁃ A Full Book Summary ⁃ An Analysis ⁃ Fun quizzes ⁃ Quiz Answers ⁃ Etc Get a copy of this summary and learn about the book.

The Body Keeps The Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma Summary

The Body Keeps The Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma Summary by Summary Station

In this book Bessel examines the ways that trauma can affect people and how they can recover from past dramatic events. When a person experiences trauma it will change the wiring in their brain and this will cause a change in the way that a person views their life and everyday situations. Trauma has a negative effect on both the body and mind in a way that will prevent a person affected by trauma from enjoying the present moment. Bessel and his colleagues have been researching trauma and the people affected by it for almost 50 years. This journey began for Dr. Bessel when he met with Vietnam War veterans who were suffering from the trauma they experienced in the war. This trauma caused these veterans to struggle with the transition of coming back home and resuming a normal life. These trauma suffers all had certain symptoms that they shared. The traumatic events that were experienced at war were constantly being replayed in the brains of the veterans. In addition to this, the veterans also appeared to be numb or indifferent to everyday life and they would become angry very easily. Dr. Bessel is considered to be the very first Dr. to diagnose and recognize posttraumatic stress disorder which is also known as PTSD. He was also one of the first doctors to identify cures and methods for assisting the people who were affected by PTSD so that they could once again live a normal life.

The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell -- Summary by Omar Elbaga

"A thought provoking look at how and why things go viral." "A must read for anyone in business, sales or marketing." This book is a summary of the original book "The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference" that was written by Malcolm Gladwell compiled for you so that you can take away the major ideas and change your life in the shortest amount of time possible. This book is for you if you want to devour the greatest books even with a busy schedule. It makes for a great companion and guide to the original book.

There are numerous patterns and factors which we can identify that come into play in every single trend.

CONCISE DICTIONARY OF METAPHORS AND SIMILIES - Editorial Board Cover Art

CONCISE DICTIONARY OF METAPHORS AND SIMILIES

CONCISE DICTIONARY OF METAPHORS AND SIMILIES by Editorial Board

Most speakers and writers use the terms metaphor and simile as if they mean exactly the same thing. But they are not! A simile is a metaphor, but not all metaphors are similes. A metaphor compares two things, and does so more directly without using as or like. For example, the shop was a little gold-mine. A simile compares (usually introduced by like or as) two things that are generally not alike--such as a line of migrant workers and a wave, or onion skins and a swarm of butterflies. Writers and authors use similes to explain things, to express emotion, or to make their writing more lively and entertaining. Metaphors also offer figurative comparisons, but these are implied rather than introduced by like or as. Salient Features: o Thousands of widely used popular Metaphors & Similes in English o Inclusion of foreign Metaphors & Similes currently in use in English language o Arranged alphabetically from A – Z o Worth recommending without second thought An authoritative Dictionary of Metaphors & Similes for students, writers, and general readers!

Dictionary of the English Language (Complete and Unabridged) - Samuel Johnson Cover Art

Dictionary of the English Language (Complete and Unabridged)

Dictionary of the English Language (Complete and Unabridged) by Samuel Johnson

Johnson’s English Dictionary is the first dictionary ever written in English, the only one written by a single author, and, according to many experts, the greatest of all English dictionaries. Jane Austen, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens and Charlotte Brontë all used what was known for over a century as “the dictionary”, while Samuel Taylor Coleridge said he viewed with suspicion any man “who should speak of it without respect and gratitude”. Since its first publication, it has been indispensable to those learning English, those studying its history, and those who care about its literature. Informative, irreverent and funny, it is a joy for everyday readers and a browser’s paradise. By making this masterpiece available once more, the release of the Lexicos edition marks an event in ebook publishing. The only unabridged ebook edition of this great work, indeed the only one available in any format, it has been professionally edited by qualified scholars (not scanned or OCR’d) and formatted for ePUB. It is based on the 1773 edition, the final edition of the Dictionary expanded and revised by Johnson himself. It also incorporates those entries included in the original 1755 edition and cut out in 1773, along with Johnson’s original preface, and his “Plan of a Dictionary of the English Language,” written in 1747. It is fully searchable and contains an active table of contents.
