by Patti LaBelle and Laura R Lancaster
"All my life people have told them to me. Pearls of wisdom worth more than rubies. 'Sentence sayings' filled with the wisdom of ages. Timeless truths that, if followed, hold the secrets of living genuinely, joyfully, generously. It started with my Grandmother Ellen when I was just a kid. Now, many years later, my family and friends are still telling me pearls of wisdom. And they're some of the wisest things I've ever heard. I hope you will find as much wisdom in these pearls as I have. Because it can make all the difference in your life..."
-- Patti LaBelle
In love, it is always better to want something you don't have than to have something you don't want.
You preach a better sermon with your life than you do with your lips.
They're the Ten Commandments, not the Ten Suggestions.
Insights that will touch you deeply, make you think, and give you hope, encouragement, and guidance-that's what Patti LaBelle offers in this jewel of a book. In it you'll find her "pearls," the succinct and witty sayings that encapsulate the principles Patti lives by, together with Patti's personal reminiscences and anecdotes. Whether talking about faith, love, and friendship or following your gut instincts and being true to yourself, Patti candidly shares intimate stories of good times and glamour, hard times and heartbreak from her own extraordinary life. It's like having a best friend in the room who tells you the truth, holds your hand, and cheers you on.
With its frank, always down-to-earth and caring voice, Patti's Pearls will inspire you-and maybe change the way you look at, and live, your life. As Patti would say, "The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.
