`Very insightful and timely…. Enhances presentations. Supports leadership thoughts, initiatives, and policies'- Gerald N Tirozzi, Executive Director, National Association of Secondary School Principals

From time to time all of us are asked to give a speech or make a few remarks. This collection of aphorisms, and quotations of inspiration, joy, humour, and wisdom, offers educators not only inspiration, but quotable quotes to be used in speeches, presentations, letters, etc. This is more than a book of quotes, however; these are thoughts that are selected and framed so that the administrator can see old problems in a new light, paint a different picture for others, and not paint himself into a corner.
