    1001 Quotations to Enlighten Entertain and Inspire
    An invaluable tool for public speaking, writing, and anyone wishing to make a memorable impact with or be inspired by words, this handsomely illustrated volume is conveniently organized to facilitate finding the perfect words for any occasion. This is the perfect book for those looking for words from great thinkers and speakers in order to make a point, plead a case, or justify an opinion, to honor, glorify, or motivate others, or even for their own personal inspiration. Filled with multicultural aphorisms, adages, and axioms from numerous brilliant minds throughout the past 7,000 years and featuring more than 800 full-color illustrations, this latest addition to the best-selling 1001 series makes accessible a vast range of complex ideas from the ancient and classical era to the present. The book draws from varied fields including art, architecture, business, ecology, economics, education, law, literature, music, philosophy, politics, psychology, religion, science, and technology, and presents words of wisdom and inspiration from a wide array of cultural figures--from ancient sages such as Plato, Basho, Sun Tzu, and Ibn Battuta through the Renaissance and Enlightenment greats like Galileo, Copernicus, Goethe, and Newton to the icons of the present era, including Nelson Mandela, Gloria Steinem, Andy Warhol, Virginia Woolf, Oprah Winfrey, and Mark Zuckerberg. While many of the quotations have been published previously, 1001 Quotations To Enlighten, Entertain, & Inspire is the first book to be fully illustrated (with images of the quotations' originators), and draws on a truly global, multicultural range of thinkers from ancient times to the present.

  • Air & Light & Time & Space How Successful Academics Write
    Air & Light & Time & Space How Successful Academics Write
    From the author of Stylish Academic Writing comes an essential new guide for writers aspiring to become more productive and take greater pleasure in their craft. Helen Sword interviewed one hundred academics worldwide about their writing background and practices. Relatively few were trained as writers, she found, and yet all have developed strategies to thrive in their publish-or-perish environment.So how do these successful academics write, and where do they find the "air and light and time and space," in the words of poet Charles Bukowski, to get their writing done? What are their formative experiences, their daily routines, their habits of mind? How do they summon up the courage to take intellectual risks and the resilience to deal with rejection?Sword identifies four cornerstones that anchor any successful writing practice: Behavioral habits of discipline and persistence; Artisanal habits of craftsmanship and care; Social habits of collegiality and collaboration; and Emotional habits of positivity and pleasure. Building on this "BASE," she illuminates the emotional complexity of the writing process and exposes the lack of writing support typically available to early-career academics. She also lays to rest the myth that academics must produce safe, conventional prose or risk professional failure. The successful writers profiled here tell stories of intellectual passions indulged, disciplinary conventions subverted, and risk-taking rewarded. Grounded in empirical research and focused on sustainable change, Air & Light & Time & Space offers a customizable blueprint for refreshing personal habits and creating a collegial environment where all writers can flourish.
