I'm overjoyed to announce that the first volume of my “Maximum Axioms for Mental Acuity” series is now available for purchase on Amazon. com.
The following is the Preface/Introduction included in the book:
Why not call them quotes? I have gotten this question several times since starting this axioms project. The answer: they're not quotes until they've been repeated and credited back to the person who originally said it. I really do hope these axioms become quotes, but I can't call them quotes because I'm the person who said them first.
The axioms in this collection are original creations from my own life experiences or that came to me while talking with family and friends about their life experiences. When giving advice, I sometimes find my mind putting words together in a way that make people say, “Hey, that sounds like a quote.” Because of that, two years ago I started jotting down things that came out of my mouth and sounded like “quotes.”
Just to be on the safe side, I started running my words through tools that are designed to check for plagiarism, just in case I was saying things in a certain way because I'd actually already heard someone else say it that way. To my delight, none of my “sayings” came up in these tools, so I was reassured that I was saying things in an original way or in a different way than they'd been said before.
Having said all that, I would like to point out that almost none of the concepts in my axioms are new. I am not so arrogant as to think that no one else has expressed the ideas I express in my axioms. What I find is that many people say the same or similar things, but they use different words to express these ideas from their own points of views. That's what I have done with these axioms.

Now that you've gotten the preface/introduction out of the way, you can dive right into the rest of the book and enjoy all the axioms. 🙂
