Description


Wise words from great minds: “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

A quote book like no other, this thought-provoking collection compiles the timeless wisdom of great original minds— from Marie Curie to Stephen King, Joan of Arc to Jack Kerouac, Oscar Wilde to Harriet Tubman—brilliantly hand-lettered by beloved indie artist Lisa Congdon. You’ll find enlightening insights (“Wisdom begins in wonder”— Socrates), stirring calls to action (“Leap and the net will appear”—John Burroughs), and stimulating encouragements (“Be curious, not judgmental”—Walt Whitman) beautifully illuminated on every page. A delightful reminder to make the most of life, Whatever You Are, Be a Good One is perfect for recent graduates, creative thinkers, and anyone looking for a little inspiration.

“An impossibly charming compendium . . . 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
