The Smartest Things Ever Said is a compendium of human wisdom culled from the world’s most celebrated—and sometimes anonymous—minds. From Confucius and Shakespeare to Toni Morrison and Woody Allen, and from Winston Churchill and Thomas Edison to Jeff Bezos and Jerry Garcia it is quite simply the best collection of the smartest quotes ever.

Included are more than a thousand quotations grouped in categories that reflect the range of human existence, hopes, and achievement, such as:

Love and Friendship

Success and Way to Achieve It

The Life of the Mind

and more.
