"A quotation at the right moment is like bread to the famished." --Talmud

The right quotation can change your life. That compressed idea--expressed in just a few words, a sentence or two--can shift your thinking, trigger an epiphany, or alter your way of seeing the world. The wisest and most experienced people in history have left behind these thought-bombs--at turns surprising, jolting, discomforting, and comforting insights about living a full, unbridled life, questioning authority and reality, relating to fellow humans, creating, risking, loving, living with uncertainty, and staying sane in an insane world.

Poets, philosophers, scientists, musicians, artists, presidents, activists, and more rub shoulders in this smartly designed book, giving us the benefit of their hard-earned wisdom, breakthroughs, breakdowns, bad choices, sudden illuminations, and lightning wit. Sharing some of life's most important lessons are William Blake and Bruce Lee, Abraham Lincoln and Lorrie Moore, Fyodor Dostoevsky and Terence McKenna, Rene Magritte and St. Teresa of Avila, Zelda Fitzgerald and Bob Marley, and dozens more. The quotes are arranged neatly into topics so you can find the apt word for any given situation.

"Flash Wisdom" is a book of rousing insights and challenging thoughts that will appeal to anyone who is searching, anyone who doesn't fit in, anyone who questions the way things are.... which is to say, all of us."
