Whatever You Are, Be a Good One by Lisa Congdon


I have this big writing white board in my workplace and home.  Though the writing board at office is used to make some impromptu schedules or urgent information. But when it is clean, I’d like to write some motivational, inspiring quotes and thought of the day just to embark the good beginning of the day with a good thought. And like me many others are also indulge in such a habit for them Whatever You Are, Be a Good One by Lisa Congdon is perfect.

Lisa Congdon a media artist and illustrator based in the San Francisco Bay Area and an active blogger as well. She has hand collected 100 thought-provoking timeless wisdom of great original minds— from Marie Curie to Stephen King, Joan of Arc to Jack Kerouac, Oscar Wilde to Harriet Tubman.

But it is no fun to walk straight all the time. The same thing applies to the quote book by Lisa Congdon. She has used different fonts and styles to present the quotes and each quote is accompanied by a thoughtful and colorful illustration matching the quotes.

The title of the book “Whatever You Are, Be a Good One’ is the very famous line by the Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of USA. There are some other quotes which I loved the most like, ‘ Happiness Is Not Found In Things You Possess, But In What You Have The Courage To Release’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne, ‘Love Has No Uttermost As The Stars Has No Numbers And Sea No Rest’ by Eleanor Farjeon, I Travel Not To Go Anywhere But To Go. I Travel For Travel’s Sake. The Great Affair Is To Move’ by Robert Louis Stevenson, ‘Success Is Never So Interesting As Struggle’ by Willa Cather.
