Dance First. Think Later by Kathryn and Ross Petras...Review & Giveaway!

I have this wonderful, new book to tell you about today...Dance First.  Think Later. by Kathryn and Ross Petras.  This one is a gem...it is filled with "618 Rules To Live By".  It is filled with the most wonderful, inspirational quotes you are likely to find all packed into a handy, little book.  This one lives on my nightstand right now!  Here is the scoop...

Timeless in their wisdom, thought-provoking in their message, surprising in their truth and memorable in their originality, the right words can give direction, inspiration, and sometimes a tangible boost onto the right path. For example, Steve Jobs once read “Stay hungry Stay foolish” on the back cover of The Whole Earth Catalog, and those four words came to guide his life.

Created by Kathryn and Ross Petras, connoisseurs of quotes, whose books and calendars have over 56 million copies in print,
“Be Yourself. Everyone Else Is Already Taken” is a collection of the greatest life wisdom from an unexpected group of speakers, doers, and thinkers. There are 618 rules to live by—funny, sly, declarative, thoughtful, offhanded, clever, and always profound.


Some of my favorite quotes?  In no particular order...

"If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun"...Katherine Hepburn (I think this must the mantra of my kids!!)

"It ain't as bad as you think.  It will look better in the morning"  Colin Powell

"We are all bozos on the same bus, so we might as well sit back and enjoy the ride" Wavy Gravy (clown)


Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.” Roald Dahl

Aren't those just great??  Some of these quotes have really helped me put things perspective when I am having a bad day and many of them have given me a good chuckle (see what Jerry Seinfeld says about fun for the whole family!!).  This one is great for anyone needing a boost or a reminder to "not sweat the small stuff".  You can pick up a copy today for only $8.95 by clicking here.

My mom had me learn a few poems when I was growing up and now that I try to think of one all I can remember is the road less traveled poem. "I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
