Dance First. Think Later. Review and Giveaway

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." -Oscar Wilde

"DANCE FIRST. THINK LATER."618 Rules to Live By
By Kathryn & Ross Petras
"The right quote at the right time can change everything-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.  Pithy but profound nuggets of big-picture wisdom can give anyone direction, courage, and inspiration."
"Created by Kathryn and Ross Petras, whose books and calendars have over 5.6 million copies in print, "Dance First. Think Later." (Workman; March 2011; ISBN 978-0-7611-6170-7; $8.95) 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, thoughtful, offhanded, clever, and always profound." (PR Email Information)

My Review
I love quotes...I have since I was in high school.  Every notebook I owned was either covered in quotes, had quote stickers, or was a collection of quotes in itself.  My 13 year old sister is much the same now.  When I was contacted about the book "Dance First. Think Later." I was very excited!  I knew that this would be an enjoyable book for both of us, and it has been!  There are quotes by well-known people as well as some I had never heard of, but all of the quotes were great.  I like to pick this book up when I'm having a frustrating moment and read a few random quotes.  It never fails to make me laugh (usually at myself)!  This would be a great gift book for any quote lover, graduate, newlywed, etc.  These qoutes focus on things that everyone has faced or will face at some point in their life.
