product description

Mac Anderson believes, “The right words can engage the brain and bring an idea to life.” This handsome book is filled with 160 motivational quotes that will inspire you when you need it most.

Motivational Quotes is a classic revisited. In 1985, Mac Anderson’s love of quotes inspired him to publish a small 80 page gift book titled Motivational Quotes. In just 18 months it sold 800,000 copies in hotel and airport gift shops. Mac then realized that people loved quotes as much as he did, and the big idea for Successories was born!

Twenty three years have passed and we’re proud to present the new, improved, updated version of the original. It still has Mac’s 80 favorite quotes that were introduced in 1985, but he’s added 80 more, that since then, have helped to motivate him in good times and bad.

The Power of Attitude
I have bought about four books from Simple Truths and I love all of them! I like the philosophy of Mr. Mac Anderson and absolutely identify with it. The only reason I don't buy more books is I wait for times free shipping is offered

        Motivational Quotes
        I love Motivational Quotes so I enjoyed this book. I try and send my senior friends some kind of quote at least once a week, to keep their spirits up. As they struggle with cancer and many things that seniors are going through. Thank you

          Quotes repeated from other books I have
          I have more than 50 wonderful books from Simple Truths. These quotes are very good - I just didn't expect this was a collection of quotes that were mostly in other books I already had.
            Bottom Line:
            Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
