             WISDOM IS CHEAP
 
     IGNORANCE IS EXPENSIVE

The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain is now available as an e-book from Harper-Collins.  The Wit and Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln and The Wit and Wisdom of John F. Kennedy (both published by Penguin) are also available as e-books. So is Quotable Shakespeare.

Recent addition is Quotable Emerson, featuring the best of the Great American Essayist, founder of Transcendentalism. He was one of the sages of the ages, who taught: "Thought rules the world." 


Ayn Rand has joined the line-up of Quotable All-Stars.  You can read her thoughts and decide for yourself: Is she a guru for narcissists? The bitch goddess of Capitalism? Or one of the greatest philosophers since Plato?
