Dictionary of American Maxims
Publisher: Philosophical Library/Open Road
An extensive collection of aphorisms of fundamental American moral rules and principles on a variety of subjects.Over the course of centuries, humanity has set down an accumulation of acute and succinct wisdom. It has the potential to be valuable and reliable, if they should be consistent in putting into practice the precepts which the best minds of the species have bequeathed them. Homo sapiens are fast learners and equally speedy forgetters. Therefore, from time to time, they should be reminded of this beneficial wisdom. In Dictionary of American Maxims, author David Kin collects a wide array of bon mots (and some wisecracks) attributed to American minds ranging from President George Washington to newspaper gossip columnist Walter Winchell. Kin has organized a vast array of wise sayings alphabetically by subject from “Ability” to “Zoroaster.” This is rich fare, certain to inspire, educate, and entertain.
