    Wise words from great minds: “Revisit this colorful read whenever you need a pick-me-up—or a push—to get out there and make the most of your day.” —Real Simple   A quote book like no other, this thought-provoking collection compiles the timeless wisdom of great original minds— from Marie Curie to Stephen King, Joan of Arc to Jack Kerouac, Oscar Wilde to Harriet Tubman—brilliantly hand-lettered by beloved indie artist Lisa Congdon. You’ll find enlightening insights (“Wisdom begins in wonder”— Socrates), stirring calls to action (“Leap and the net will appear”—John Burroughs), and stimulating encouragements (“Be curious, not judgmental”—Walt Whitman) beautifully illuminated on every page. A delightful reminder to make the most of life, Whatever You Are, Be a Good One is perfect for recent graduates, creative thinkers, and anyone looking for a little inspiration.   “An impossibly charming compendium . . . The common thread underpinning these quotes—which include such beloved luminaries as Albert Camus, Simone de Beauvoir, Henry James, Anne Lamott, Soren Kierkegaard, and Leo Tolstoy—is Congdon’s own sensibility about what it means to live with kindness and integrity, to cherish beauty and the creative spirit, and ultimately to be a good human being.” —Brain Pickings

    Wise, funny, and encouraging quotes by mothers and about motherhood—in all its messy, wonderful glory. 
     
    I have found being a mother has made me emotionally raw in many situations. Your heart is beating outside your body when you have a baby. —Kate Beckinsale 
     
     
     
    In an era of online mom-shaming, Carissa Bonham likes to keep things authentic when discussing the struggles of modern motherhood. One popular meme shared on Carissa’s website, Creative Green Living, says “Some days I make beautiful dinners from scratch. Today my kids had cereal and ice cream for dinner. At least it was organic.”

Explore the many stages of motherhood, the life-giving power of mothers, mom instincts, and cultural parenting through the quotes on these pages. Receive advice from crunchy moms, mothers of differently wired kids, and mothers of teens and adult children.

    Invaluable advice from the nineteenth century on parenting, gardening, home medicine, etiquette & manners, cooking, home DIY projects and more. 
     
    Any parent knows that keeping a household in order isn’t an easy task. One hundred years ago, families faced many of the same issues then as we do today, as illustrated by this collection of tips and advice that bridges the gap between the antique and the contemporary. 
     
    In the mid 1800s, Mrs. L.G. Abell compiled a document containing hundreds of skills, advice and recipes for any woman wishing to run an efficient home. Broken up into sections on child-rearing, medicine, and general household recipes and tasks, her words provided countless families with the tools and know-how they needed to efficiently and effectively run a home. 
     
    Times have changed a bit, but Abell’s advice, based on years of experience and trail and error, holds up well, including such basics as grocery shopping, cures for common illnesses, cleanliness and proper etiquette, and more. In this new edition, hundreds of color photographs adorn this perfect gift book, bringing it into the 21st century and making it the indispensable gift for any parent.
