Influential people, from the builders of civilizations and up to the entrepreneurs and scientists of today, have made very wise and powerful statements throughout history. Nowadays, it is very simple to access the wisdom of these people. The internet offers a plethora of information if you know where to look. Jean Pierre, Bono, and Richard are three ambitious men constantly searching for new knowledge and new ways to improve the quality of their personal lives. Learning from the experience of others is one of the best ways to accomplish this. This is one of the reasons why they are on the constant lookout for great quotes that can support them on their way to personal success.
As the self-taught street philosopher Bono Heijnen says, “A good quote is worth a thousand lessons.”
Quotes are a nice vehicle for nurturing one’s soul. Quotes can often be seen as nutrition for the mind, for they can be that little bit of light when there is darkness or they can stimulate solutions when one cannot find a way out of a problem. Reading quotes every day can and will make you see certain situations from another perspective. We have noticed that reading quotes on a daily basis provides us with new insights, ideas, and wisdom in different areas of life, and, more often, they fortify us with the necessary motivation and inspiration to keep our daily energy levels as high as possible!
The idea for writing this book — The Great Pocket Book of Quotes — arose from our personal experiences of reading quotes each and every day. All three of us have noticed radical changes in our lives using quotes as mind nutrition and guidelines for success. This experience is what we wanted to share with all of you. We know for sure that the wisdom that we have shared in this book, will be of great value to your lives. And we hope that, reading our collection of quotes, will be the fresh, gentle breeze you need in our fast-changing, hardening world.
Made with love,
Jean Pierre, Bono, and Richard ×
