I collect quotation books, which have the same appeal to me as poetry - distilled words of wisdom. Wowisms is a little book of quotations that stands out in several areas. It's aimed at 'Dreamers and Doers'. It's a selection from the authors' best-selling Zentrepeneur's Guides. And each of the lovely black and white drawings interspersed among the quotes made me say 'Wow!'

Wowisms opens with Buddha's excellent advice to 'Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.' The quotes that follow are all about daring to live your dreams, as in these favorites of mine ... 'Wed being and doing', 'Change is the elixir of life', and 'Stop waiting for permission. You were born with the permission to be yourself.'

Though some Wowisms are a bit cumbersome in length, they're all worthy of consideration, giving much nutritious food for thought. If you know anyone with a dream, or about to embark on a new venture, give them this small book to launch it in the right frame of mind - and don't forget to read it yourself!
