image

MyWisdom is a real gem. It's a well organized collection of bits of wisdom — thousands of quotations from over 500 different individuals — currently on sale for .99. You can view a list of authors — from Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Albert Einstein, and Abraham Lincoln, to Marie Osmond, Ben Harper, Nicholas Cage, and Paul McCartney. The range is remarkable. You can also view by category, from Altruism & Cynicism to Work & Recreation.
