Book Quotations

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
Saint Augustine

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.

Any time women come together with a collective intention, it's a powerful thing. Whether it's sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.
Phylicia Rashad
