The Times Great Quotations Famous Quotes to Inform, Motivate and Inspire Synopsis

Be inspired and moved by the words of Malala Yousafzai, Amelia Earhart, Michelle Obama and Banksy in a collection of great and memorable quotations from across the centuries. Thematically-arranged quotes from the most notable minds, orators, celebrities, writers and politicians that ever lived. Struggling to recall those elusive quotes and sayings? With this thematic approach, The Times has the answer with a selection of the best one-liners across multiple topics and including a people index to help you find who and what you are looking for. Minds are like parachutes. They only function when they are open. [Attr.] Sir James Dewar, Scottish physicist (1842-1923) One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first. Malala Yousafzai, Pakistani activist and Nobel Prize winner True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. A Hard Road to Glory (1993) Arthur Ashe, American tennis player and Aids activist (1943-1993) No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance. Confucius, Chinese teacher (551-479 bc)
