by Jean-Claude Guilbaud
Life grants wisdom and insight to those conscious enough to recognize its gifts and rewards. As Jean-Claude Guilbaud approached fifty years of age, he decided to put his life reflections and observations to paper, embarking on a mission to educate, stimulate, and inspire readers in his work Lifelong Quotes, a book propelling readers to seek and uncover their divine potential.
Guilband chose a unique way to express his thoughts; through contemplative quotes and prose.
“Life is a school of long suffering, sometimes we pass and sometimes we fail, but one day we all shall graduate and receive our diplomas.”
“In this present life, we must be prepared to die so we can begin to live.”
The eccentric and introspective quotes in Lifelong Quotes are based upon all aspects of life – love, living, learning, inspiration, and experience. It is a collection aimed at bringing people closer, making them aware of our existence through the supernatural power of the supreme divine Spirit who gave us life.
