The Golden Treasury of Wisdom: Great Thoughts of Great Minds

 
B.N. Bahuguna . (Editor)
Synopsis A writer has apply remarked that ‘when a book raises your spirit and inspires you with noble and manly thoughts, seek for no other test of its excellence. It is good and made by a good workman. ‘Nothing illustrates this truth better than this volume which is a goldmine of elevating thoughts and choicest expressions from books of lasting human interest. In the preface the complier has given the genesis of the book. An avidly keen and voracious reader, he not only extensively read the books as a hobby but also kept a regular note of choicest observations/guotations that came his way. And he continued to follow this practice for over half a century during which some twenty diaries/note books came to be filled in his own hand. As stated in the preface, he had initially no intention of collating and compilling these immortal aphorisms/expressions in book form. But later, considering that the quotations preserve ‘the wisdom of the wise and the experience of ages’, the edifice of the book took its present form. It is now placed in the hands of the readers who will themselves testify how far it has elevated their minds and thoughts. We hope the wisdom of ages as condensed in this volume, will make it not only a precious acquisition to public and private libraries but will also be venerated, no less thank a scripture by book lovers, both old and young.
