About the author (1999)

Hubbard spent much of his life carefully collecting quotes and passages of significance from history and literature. As he gathered these selections, he added them to his scrap book for his own personal inspiration. Yet, he never once conceived of the idea to publish what had served as spiritual nourishment for his own refreshment and pleasure.
