HOPE: Voices of Wisdom from MEXICO and the CARIBBEAN




In these 540 quotes from Mexico and the Caribbean, poets, clergymen, journalists, activists, and singer-songwriters reach out to empower and inspire the reader.

Their insights offer solutions to life’s doubts and disillusions while inviting us to explore global preoccupations and consider their relevance to our own lives.

The first of seven books of global quotes, HOPE captures the voices of 148 visionaries like Carlos Fuentes, Emiliano Zapata, and Elena Poniatowska - people who struggled for justice and dignity as they explored the human experience.
