Fortune Favors the Brave: 100 Courageous Quotations

Author(s): Lisa Congdon (Illustrator)


A treasure trove of inspiring quotations in the tradition of the bestselling Whatever You Are, Be a Good One, this new volume from beloved author and artist Lisa Congdon gathers rousing wisdom from history's great minds on how to be bold, stay strong, and take courage. Congdon lends her signature style of brilliant hand lettering to sage advice on such subjects as perseverance ("If you fell down yesterday, stand up today"--H.G. Wells), authenticity ("What should I be but just what I am?"--Edna St. Vincent Millay), and confronting fear ("Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced"--James Baldwin). Filled with uplifting reminders to seize the day, Fortune Favors the Brave demonstrates that when embarking on a new adventure, the right words of encouragement can be a priceless gift.
