The result of more than 50 years of effort by its author, Philip A. Grisolia, Wise Words delivers precisely what its subtitle describes – “1001 Truths to Inspire, Enlighten and Enrich Everyday Life.”
Even before he was a teenager, Grisolia became fascinated by the power of words, what they could accomplish, how they could change events, shape history, even reshape people's lives. So captivated was he by the ability of words to influence people and events that he began collecting every motivational quotation he came across. That process lasted more than 50 years, gathering over 3,000 such sayings.
The 1,001 truths appearing in Wise Words were handpicked by Grisolia as the most inspiring, the most motivating. His passion for words and the countless things they can accomplish also led Grisolia into his twin professions, award-winning writer and inspired educator.
Whether you describe the wisdom, inspiration and motivation you’ll discover throughout Wise Words as truths, proverbs, epigrams, sayings or some other term, each of its 1,001 quotations contains its own unique, thought-provoking morsel of wisdom. And, as some wise person once wrote, “…thinking makes us wise, wisdom makes life bearable.”

The origins of the wisdom and motivation in this book extend to the far corners of the world. “Many of the ideas you’ll find in Wise Words are truly unique,” said Grisolia, “taken from a variety of interesting, sometimes obscure things its I’ve read, and from conversations I’ve had with some rather special people over the years,” adding, “As a result, a good many of the truths you’ll find in Wise Words are appearing in print for the first time.”
“If you’re like most people who read Wise Words,” Grisolia added, “many of its truths will develop special meanings for you. Which is why you’ll enjoy rereading it often,” he explained.
The 600-plus men and women quoted in Wise Words are from all walks of life…rich and poor, wise and otherwise, famous and infamous. Some have succeeded in life, others failed. “Yet you’re sure to learn something of value from each of them,” said Grisolia.
