Volume II of IV- Download a sample PDF of the book below.

A compilation of quotations and proverbs from the most enlightened, intelligent, and forward thinkers in human history regarding the most important aspects of life. Compiled and arranged to give the reader a clear direction in their life based on their internal needs, wants, and desires.

While no one on Earth is special, everyone is unique. Nobody past, present, or future has gone through or has had the same thoughts and experiences as you, nor will they in the future. As a result, you see the world in a completely unique way. Studying these volumes will guide your mind's eye in distinguishing the most significant passages to you and your being as well as reaffirming or contradicting what you already know and believe, by the wisest people throughout history. Out of the thousands of quotes and proverbs within these volumes, your personality will subconsciously pick out the most relevant quotes and proverbs to you and you alone. 

It would be a mistake to concentrate on only one topic because all subjects are connected to aid you in reaching your own epiphany. Many of the most profound quotes and proverbs are recorded under various topics throughout the book. Though you may only be interested in "Success & Failure," many of the quotes and proverbs attributed to success can also be found under "Leadership," "Attitude," or even "Life, Purpose, & Growth," for example.

The aim of this huge collection of human wisdom is enlightenment: to assist the readers in realizing what is truly important in life, as well as to find their true self; to shatter the illusions that everyone builds for themselves through false assumptions and stereotypes; to find their true inner being; to find purpose; and, most importantly, to discover what makes them and them alone happy.

To receive the full benefit of these volumes and to fully immerse yourself in self-discovery, you must commit to studying the entire collection. If you only want a hint of what’s important in life, then limit yourself to a single volume.

Read and carefully study all the volumes as well as all the topics to wake yourself up, gain insight, break through the illusions you’ve built for yourself, and live a life free from regret.

Most of our pocket (every day or common) wisdom is conceived for the use of mediocre people, to discourage them from ambitious attempts, and generally console them in their mediocrity.
