The Treasury of Spiritual Wisdom is a wonderful collection of over 10,000
powerful quotations, compiled from a wide and eclectic range of sources. From
Emily Dickinson to Oscar Levant, from Confucius to Andrew Carnegie, from Jesus
to Pablo Casals, the quotations are drawn from philosophers, spiritual teachers,
artists, composers, scientists, and many, many others, from ancient times to the
present, representing a vast panoply of cultures and traditions.
Organized into over 140 headings such as Love, Power, Self-Esteem, Habits, Grace, Abundance, and Death, the Treasury provides a lively and valuable resource for speakers searching for the seeds of a speech, teachers seeking inspiration, or for the reader who just needs a few words of wisdom or comfort. What makes this book so remarkable is the consistent clarity, power and insight of the selections, and the wide-ranging, non-sectarian quality of the quotations chosen.
About the Author:
The editor of this collection, Andy Zubko, has also
collaborated on a book about the American saint Peace Pilgrim. Born in New
Jersey, he became a partner in a successful greeting card company. Although very
successful materially in business, he found himself deeply unsatisfied with his
life. He sold his share of the business and took over an orphanage that the
Catholic Church had decided to close. He has worked with Peace Pilgrim, with
homeless people, and with Mother Teresa's nuns in Haiti.
