In time of confusion, stagnancy, or pain, words of wisdom can serve as a beacon, directing you through darkness and toward light. The various writings in A Treasury of Wisdom have been selected for just this purpose. Whether the words of Jesus, Shakespeare, or Francis of Assisi, the wisdom within this treasury will challenge your thinking and help to direct your steps, whenever you may need it. You may open its pages with a particular theme in mind, diligently searching for words of advice. Other times, you may flip through the pages more idly, allowing your attention to pause or wander as it will. However you choose to use the collection, you will surely find glimpses of hope, clarity, and truth hidden within.
