The expression "The pen is mightier than the sword" (Edward George Bulwer-Lytton) is well-known, and for centuries humans have used their pens effectively to embrace the most powerful force available to them in the form of words. There are some that use words to wreak havoc and destruction, inflict pain and despair, hurt and humiliate; then there are those that have been moved to use the energy and power of words to help, heal, inspire, motivate, and empower people throughout the history of mankind. The quotes outlined in Empowered are thought-provoking, impacting, wise, and often witty. Not to be underestimated are the images included in the text. They relate to their respective quotes and are themselves fitting objects for exploration, inspiration, and humour. From the boardroom to the classroom, these quotes are ripe for discussion and a fun way to stimulate the brain cells as we explore the broad philosophical thinking behind each statement. For those who seek inspiration and motivation in their professional or personal life, or who may want to rediscover their passion and purpose, this book will undoubtedly make a great gift that stimulates critical and creative thinking.
