Description
Romania. For most of the world, the name usually conjures up images of Dracula, Olympic gymnastics legend Nadia Comaneci--and not much else. Yet this country with a rich history stretching back thousands of years contains countless wonders and hidden gems, producing many people who've made a major impact on our world. Their Wisdom has remained hidden behind the barrier of a language spoken by less than 25 million people worldwide. All selections within this book are from people born in Romania, including: Hollywood legends Edward G. Robinson, Bela Lugosi (the original Dracula), and Johnny Weissmuller (the original Tarzan); Elie Weisel, Nobel Prize-winning author; Olympic gold medal gymnast Nadia Comaneci; Renowned sculptor Constantin Brancusi to the lesser-known outside Romania, such as poet Mihai Eminescu (whose fame it's said would have rivaled Shakespeare, had Eminescu written in English). This Book will give you a meaningful glimpse into the heart and soul of Romania and its people--both the world-famous and everyday citizens. REVIEWS Romania nourishes the soul and the heart. –HRH Charles, The Prince of Wales, with Charles Ottley, writer & presenter of Wild Carpathia documentary Romanians have an engrained wisdom, an ancestral quality to inspire, create, and guide others. The Little Book of Romanian Wisdom proves once again their perception, knowledge, judgements, and passions. Nicely crafted, the book is the ultimate guide for all the ones interested in discovering themselves while learning about this mystical country: Romania. --Aura Imbarus, author of the Pulitzer Prize nominated book Out of the Transylvanian Night Wisdom seems to find us in the exact moment in which our soul is in a quest for answers or for something to resonate with. The whole magic of wisdom: it knows no boundaries of language, religion or political color. Wisdom is what stays behind and crystallizes inside us when experience, genius, suffering, age or all of the above wash away the shores of our lives. That’s why I am so proud that two wonderful people like Diana and Matthew came up with the idea of making the secret gems of Romanian wisdom known to the entire world, as they often go unseen or neglected. They’re food for thought as well as for the soul, because genuine emotions are what our souls truly feast on... --Diana-Florina Cosmin, Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Life, Romania This little jewel of Romanian Wisdom is a huge gift of inspiration from two talented people and a small nation. Who knew that Romania concealed such wisdom? Once you start reading it, you won’t be able to put it down. Don’t pass this treasure by. --- Dr. Phil Nuernberger, host of the This Amazing Life radio show; author of The Warrior Sage; President of Strategic Intelligence Skills Each quote in The Little Book of Romanian Wisdom should be offered as a toast to the brilliance and spirit of the Romanian people... much as one would do with a shot of ţuica [Romania’s home-brewed national liquor], one great “spirit” acknowledging the other. Noroc! --Robert Friedman, M.D., co-author of The Divine Code of Da Vinci, Fibonacci, Einstein and YOU and The Golden Ratio Lifestyle Diet As long as I can remember, I have collected quotes that touched me. Perhaps they were funny, profound, puzzling, or beautiful. The Little Book of Romanian Wisdom is full of inspiring quotes and stories that I can add to my collection, and use in my work and life. --Gurumarka Khalsa, yogi, spiritual guide and author, Total Fitness
