A Book of Quotes & Thoughts of a Deep Thinker Plus True Short Stories
by Dr. Neenah Boyd
About the Book
QUOTES ARE a dime a dozen. They uplift, inspired, and encourage. They change a person’s perspectives and enlighten. Reading a quote can affirm previous thoughts or offer a new look at a situation. Some quotes can have an opposite effect that disproves a previous thought, which can be healthy.
EACH QUOTE or thought in QUOTES PLUS: A Book of Quotes & Thoughts of a Deep Thinker Plus True Short Stories has a companion quote or thought on the next line. Some are brief, memorable, and easily quotable. Two true short stories follow the quotes and thoughts. One is about a thank-you letter sent to the author by His Royal Highness, Prince Charles of Wales. The other is about the replica of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky, USA. The entire book of quotes, thoughts, and short stories are originals and come from the author’s depth of education, professional life of thirty years as a Speech/Language Pathologist with a nice working with gifted junior high students, extensive Jewish and Christian theology, practice of the 613 commandments, and leadership thereof; as well as business world experience as the Founder, CEO/CFO of a humanitarian nonprofit, and roles in Toastmasters International, which is the organization that helps adults improve their public speaking and leadership skills.
THE AUTHOR believes everyone can be more successful than they are with the right tools and inspiration. The short stories are loaded with inspiration that will leave the reader highly encouraged. This book was written so that the contents would be widely quoted, shared, given as gifts, used to bolster articles, research papers, etc. Cover design and photos were done by the author’s fantastic husband and greatest supporter, William Boyd.
