Whatever You Are, Be a Good One

Whatever You Are, Be a Good One

This is the title of a new book, described on the wonderful advert-free Brain Pickings review website as “…an impossibly charming compendium of 100 wise and timeless thoughts from some of history’s greatest minds, hand-lettered by illustrator and Brain Pickings collaborator Lisa Congdon.

The common thread underpinning these quotes … is Congdon’s own sensibility about what it means to live with kindness and integrity, to cherish beauty and the creative spirit, and ultimately to be a good human being.
