Upon retirement from hotel management, the first thing he did was catch up on reading great authors and thinkers. When
he was working in hotels he found he never had time to read anything but short quotations without being interrupted.
Quotable Wisdom Books are for people who may only have time to read short quotations. These books represent the highlights
of a long postponed reading binge, a tour of great minds, and a tribute to sages of all ages.
