“Here’s what my love affair with quotations has taught me: the more you focus on words that uplift you, the more you embody the ideas contained in those words.”
O, The Oprah Magazine, is celebrating its tenth anniversary with this powerful little book, which offers more than six hundred inspiring ideas and quotations selected from the pages of the magazine. Words That Matter is a gathering of some of the greatest wisdom to appear in the magazine over the last decade, from historical figures and spiritual leaders to authors and actors, philosophers and Nobel Peace Prize winners. Here are the insights of Maya Angelou, Eckhart Tolle, Alice Walker, Elie Wiesel, Martha Beck, Suze Orman, and dozens of others on love and sex, friendship and gratitude, success and money, and beyond. And, of course, we’ve included the best of Oprah—her most memorable moments, her advice on aging brilliantly, her favorite ways to give thanks, and her take on pursuing your wildest passions.
Words That Matter is a book to keep on your bedside table or by your favorite reading chair—a book you will return to again and again, finding new ways to think about life each time you do.
Enter DailyLit's Reader Challenge: "Your Words That Matter" to win one of three hard copies of Words That Matter. Deadline is Friday, April 30 at 11:59pm!

I need intense, juicy quotes that cause me to walk about all day in poetic-zombie mode, weary with pondering, until I have to take a nap.

devote ten seconds to yourself everyday by reading this book in dailly installments and reflecting on what it you read, by whom and how that makes you feel.

I was hoping for a daily dose of inspiration, wisdom, or even humour. The phrases in this mailing were more often bland, boring, and even occasionally depressing. I wouldn't bother.
