"Dance First. Think Later." Book Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
I love little pearls of wisdom...simple quotes that everyone should live by. In Dance First. Think Later., you will find "a collection of the greatest life wisdom from an unexpected group of speakers, doers, and thinkers." These "pithy but profound nuggets of big-picture wisdom can give anyone direction, courage, and inspiration."

About the Authors:
"Kathryn and Ross Petras are a brother-and-sister writing team and inveterate collectors of quotations. Their books include Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're a Cheese, The 776 Stupidest Things Ever Said, Don't Forget to Sing in the Lifeboats, and many more. Their work has been covered in publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the London Times, and on numerous television and radio shows, including Good Morning America. They are also the creators of the bestselling The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said Page-A-Day® calendar, which has more than 4.3 million copies in print. Ross Petras lives with his family in New Jersey; Kathryn Petras with her husband in Manhattan."

My Take:
I just love this book. It has some really amazing quotes in it that help you to remember what's really important in life. Here are some of my favorites:

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." ―Oscar Wilde

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." ―Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel)

"The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook." ―Julia Child

"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." ―Elbert G. Hubbard

And, just for my mom...

"Call home at least once a week." ―John Grisham

Dance First. Think Later. is the perfect gift for anyone. Do you need a graduation gift? Anniversary? Birthday? Maybe there's someone getting married or moving into a new home who needs a little direction and perspective. This book is perfect for everyone.

Cost: You can buy Dance First. Think Later. for $8.95 from Amazon.com. ($$$$)

Overall: We give Dance First. Think Later. a 9.5/10!

My favorite quote was on a poster I had in college. It was Snoopy sitting on a pile of empty pizza boxes and empty root beer mugs.

"If it feels good, over do it."

Gotta love Snoopy's philosophy.
