Life is like a gemstone. Let’s hold it under the light and watch it sparkle.
Born in Princeton, NJ, Philip Schmitz spent his formative decades in Salzburg, Austria. His exposure to a foreign culture exerted an enormous influence on his life.
As a professional translator, he has written well over a million words. Although much of his work was printed between the covers of books (12) and published online, it left him unsatisfied.
Wisdom Quotes Illustrated is his first attempt at publishing on the subjects that matter to him most: learning, developing, and changing; staying inspired and motivated; and cultivating a positive, optimistic frame of mind even—and especially—when difficult situations arise.
His goal is to produce a series of books that will provide awareness and insight, and encourage personal growth.
Philip lives in Connecticut. When he’s not up to his neck in a translation or busily collecting quotes for his next book, he enjoys baking cakes and can found walking in the quiet recesses of nearby nature preserves.

This is a wonderful,, encouraging book for a quick pick-me-up or in- depth self-evaluation. The pictures are beautiful, and each point very well covered. I would recommend this book to anyone who appreciates life and beauty, and wants to make a difference in themselves and the world around them.
