8,789 Words Of Wisdom is brimming with great advice, maxims, sayings and saws, proverbs, precepts and truths-8,789 of them, to be exact. Turn to any spot in the book and there is the secret to living a happier, healthier, saner, more productive life. Learn to unlearn. Appreciate the questions as much as the answers. Stretch beyond what is comfortable. There are folksy expressions polished smooth over time: If you think you can, you can. Experience is the best teacher. Quotes: Those who know don't speak, those who speak don't know (Lao-tzu). Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there (Will Rogers).
