Allen Klein is a motivational speaker and author who believes strongly in the way words can influence how we feel mentally, physically, and spiritually. In this day of tweeting, texting, cyberspeak and the non-language of E-mail, the written and spoken word has the power to touch our hearts and lift our spirit that is extraordinary. In this The Art of Living Joyfully, Jollytologist Allen Klein presents a compendium of advice and plain common sense comprising a guide to good cheer. This wonderful collection of quips, quotes and instruction comes from a variety of people and from all eras of history. Dividing the books thematically, covering such topics as Friendship, Laughter, Beauty, Nature, Faith, and more, this is a book to cherish for oneself and to give as a heartfelt gift. HENRY DAVID THOREAU on Friendship: "The most I can for my friend is simply to be his friend," WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE on Laughter: "A light heart lives long." RALPH WALDO EMERSON on Happiness: "Happiness is a perfume which you cannot pour on someone without getting some on yourself." SOPHOCLES on Love: "One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love." MARTIN LUTHER on Nature: "Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf of springtime." From yesteryear to yesterday to today; from the famous to the little known; on subjects that touch our lives every day in every way, the selection of quotes in THE ART OF LIVING JOYFULLY offers insight and inspiration to help you and those you care about feel good about themselves and life.
Motivational speaker Allen Klein has compiled hundreds of positive passages from notable figures from Plato to Dolly Parton, Shakespeare to Jerry Seinfeld, and Walt Whitman to Oprah Winfrey. Inspiration for a Lifetime is the ultimate motivating, encouraging, and uplifting book to enjoy and share. These very wise words and affirmative sayings have the power to touch our hearts, make us laugh, alleviate our stress, while realizing the vast potential life has to offer. Grouped thematically, these quips, quotes, and "power thoughts" can help you deal with everything life throws at you, from Anger and Adversity to Worrying, and they inspire you to do everything from "Alter your attitude" to "Take the first step." Allen Klein's book of pure inspiration can help you not sweat the small stuff and lift your spirits enough to take on the big stuff of life. Are the kids driving you crazy? Are you facing a challenge? Are money matters uppermost in your mind? Perhaps you’re experiencing travel troubles, or technology is about to drive over the edge. Just open this book to your stress of the moment, and let laughter erase your tension. Categorized by stress-related themes (such as: Kids, Jobs, Spouses, even Modern Technology), just the right quote to amuse and inspire you can be found at a moment’s anxiety. Erma Bombeck on Teenagers: “Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth.” Dobie Gillis on Work: “I don’t have anything against work. I just figure, why deprive somebody who really loves it?” Bill Cosby on Success and Failure: “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” Whether you want a quick pick-me-up or the perfect line for presentation or speech, you will find exactly what you need in Inspiration for a Lifetime.
