Wit, craic, and maxims from the Emerald Isle’s most famous descendents including JFK, Ronald Reagan, St. Patrick, William Butler Yeats, Oscar Wilde, George Carlin, Brendan Behan, Michael Collins, de Valera, Tug McGraw, and many more! In this lively and wide-reaching collection Dermot McEvoy gathers together some of Ireland’s most famous lines from its most famous (and infamous) residents. But just who are the Irish, exactly? They are freedom fighters (the British call them “terrorists”), slave-owners, master politicians, relentless defenders of their religions, gay, straight, liberal, reactionary, victims of a famine, and mercenaries in the name of imperialism. They are expert businessmen, singers, outlaws, movie stars, writers, poets, priests, highwaymen, beggars, gypsies, gangsters and athletes. They are drunkards, teetotalers, modest, extravagant, and always shocked by the whole thing. They are inspirational and infuriating. They are funny and they are cynical. They are extraordinarily talented and remarkably venal. They are tough, adaptable, and the ultimate survivors. They are bewildering. They are infuriating. And whatever they are, there is a certain wisdom to it all. So dive in and discover new lines and classic quotes from your favorite Irish men and women!

There's something about a mother's hug and whispered words of wisdom that gives an indescribably warm feeling of comfort. In the tradition of The Book of Fathers' Wisdom comes The Book of Mothers' Wisdom. In this loving and memorable book, mothers throughout history give sage advice and encouragement to their children-and yours. From authors Jane Austen to Joyce Carol Oates, politicians Eleanor Roosevelt to Hillary Rodham Clinton, and socialites Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Princess Diana, this book is filled with mother wit on character, faith, happiness, and love -- messages that are timeless and meaningful. For example, Jane Austen gave these pearls of advice about marriage and motherhood: "Do not be in a hurry, depend upon it, the right man will come at last. You will meet somebody who will so completely attach to you that you will feel you never really loved before. And then, by not beginning the business of mothering quite so early in life, you will be young in constitution, spirits, figure and countenance". Gabriella Kerouac to her son Jack: "Whatever you do, I won't criticize your judgments; after all, your life's your own work". Here, through anecdotes and stories, mothers advise, instruct, admonish, and congratulate their children. They remind them -- in a way only a mother can -- that they have their unconditional love. The Book of Mothers' Wisdom contains advice from more than one hundred mothers, including Lucille Ball, Diana Ross, Abigail Adams, and the mothers of Thomas Edison, Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, and Mark Twain. The Book of Mothers' Wisdom offers a unique and cosy peek into the intimate and irreplaceable relationship between a mother and child.These maternal recommendations for successful living will surprise and delight all rea

The Little Green Tree is a modern parable, that is, an allegory designed to illustrate and teach truths, spiritual principles, or moral lessons. This parable presents a fresh but profound view concerning the central theme, the dangers of disobedience as it successfully captures the challenges of parenting. This powerfully moving story, written as a poem, offers believable, everyday moments between mother and son. The compelling subject of the short tale is about the relationship between the mother tree and her son. The Little Green Tree takes readers and listeners—both children and adults—on an imaginary journey into a mother’s understanding heart and a son’s rebellious spirit that reveals both joy and pain. Lesser themes are living responsibly, enlightened self interest, and personal power through awareness. Readers and listeners, alike, will witness the love and caring of both the mother tree and her self-destructive offspring. Unfortunately, the son fails to take his mother’s knowledge, ancient wisdom, and perspective into account. It is sad, but it is also uplifting because of its honest statements of pure, natural truths concerning the universal laws that govern our time-space-reality. With candor, this powerful, practical, and poignant story is written as a lyrical poem with 18 verses written in octaves. The vibrant narrative style, characterized by the fun-to-read rhymes, will help children and their parents to understand the enchanting tale. Succeeding on multiple levels, it is a story about nature and nurture. It is about compassionate parenting. Note that the little green tree is reared in an emotionally safe and caring environment; thus, the community is a major character. Because there is not a page that fails to grip the reader and the listener, dialogue will be initiated between parent and child. The Little Green Tree is an essential book for teaching and entertaining toddlers to pre-teens.
