Politics. It’s a word that carries a great deal of weight, and there have been many words spoken about it ever since human beings decided it might be a good idea to come down from the trees and form some kind of government. The Little Black Book of Political Wisdom is an engaging collection of the wisest, funniest, and most insightful words ever said about the world of politics. Gathered here are hundreds of quotations from statesmen and stateswomen, philosophers, foreign leaders, journalists, and other politically astute observers from ancient times to present day. Here are some examples: “Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.” —Henry Adams “I have learned that one of the most important rules of politics is poise—which means looking like an owl after behaving like a jackass.” —Ronald Reagan “Politics are almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous. In war you can be killed once, but in politics many times.” —Sir Winston Churchill “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.” —Aesop “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.” —P. J. O’Rourke

From Thomas Keller to Julia Child—hundreds of quotes that are sure to please anyone who loves to cook, bake, drink, and eat. As American chef and food writer James Beard once said, "Food is our common ground, a universal experience." Everyone has a favorite food or meal, a method of cooking or baking they swear by, or a secret ingredient they utilize whenever possible. Food brings friends and family together every day, whether in their dining rooms or at tables in their favorite restaurants. The Little Red Book of Kitchen Wisdom presents thoughts on the happenings in kitchens around the world, from the preparation of ingredients to the consumption of meals and everything in between. This book will include quotes from the most respected chefs in the world (such as Heston Blumenthal, Alice Waters, and Grant Achatz), recognizable celebrity chefs and television personalities (Alton Brown, Mario Batali, Cat Cora), food critics and writers (Michael Pollan, Ruth Reichl, Michael Ruhlman), and various actors, actresses, authors, comedians, and poets who like to eat and talk about it. The mix of professionals and celebrities featured in this book will draw the attention of cooks at every level—professionals, home cooks, and hobbyists—and people who simply love to eat and drink. “The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook.” —Julia Child “I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” —W.C. Fields “The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.” —Michael Pollan "A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that's when cuisine is truly exciting." —Charlie Trotter

In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, the word yoga means “spiritual discipline.” Modern yoga is thought of mainly in the context of its postures, but the actual meaning of yoga goes much deeper than that. Though its exact history is unknown, the first recorded instance appears in ancient Shamanism, a religion that involved healing its community members, among other functions. Throughout history, yoga has developed and adapted depending on its practicing members. While its original focus was applying and understanding the world, its focus was later changed to the self, with self-enlightenment being the ultimate goal. Later, the poses and meditation became critical elements in practicing yoga, a development introduced by Buddhist teachings. Yoga has many interpretations, and it has many teachers. From ancient yogis such as Buddha to more modern experts such as B. K. S. Iyengar, there is much wisdom to be gleaned from these pages, and there is much that can be discarded. As many say in the yoga world, if something does not work for you, then it is not true for you. There have been countless yogis and yoga experts throughout history, delving into the deepest meanings of yoga as well as scratching its most shallow surface. As readers will discover from this inspirational collection of yoga wisdom, there is no one way to do yoga, see yoga, or feel yoga.
