If you've ever wanted to squeeze a quote into 140 character or less, then this book will give you something to chirp about. It contains 1400 of the greatest quotes of the greatest minds of all time, and Paris Hilton. It comes pre tweeted.
I have been a fan of quotations for several years, whenever I had something on my mind which I wished to clarify, I would go to my favortie quote website, and punch in two or three words, and see what some of the greatest minds of all time had to say. What did Shakespeare think, or Einstein, or Churchill, or Wilde, or Shaw? Usually I would come away with a different point of view. I felt that it sharpened and improved my mind.
A few months ago I opened up a twitter account, and many quotes do not fit this 140 character format, even things you write yourself you have to chop and cut to make it fit. I found though that when you do chop and cut, your communication becomes a little sharper and more inventive. I definitely belive if you can say something in one line instead of four do it.
If you're like me, then as you read you may be pleasantly surprised at how good these quotes are. Often with a bigger quotation book you have to wade through several pages for a good quote. Here, you will find several outstanding ones on every page. Obviously, the authors, one a librarian, the other a copywriter, have a good sense of an effective quotation, study the effect of a line, and have vetted these for quality.
I did go on Twitter and tweet a few quotes and picked up several followers, including, much to my surprise, an Olympic gold medalist.
It does not matter if you twitter, you will find this quite entertaining. It's light, it's portable, it's easy to use. And can post it on your facebook wall or use it to spice up a presentation or throw into a conversation.
As Shakespeare said: "Brevity is the soul of wit."
So, if you want to get 1400 of the greatest quotes of the greatest minds of all time, and Paris Hilton this is the book.
I think you will enjoy it, and I hope this was helpful.
