Wise Words for Turbulent Times

"I pick up favourite quotations, & store them in my mind as ready armour, offensive, or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence."
Robert Burns, 1792

Limited edition quotation gift cards from the Centre for Confidence and Well-being - 6 different designed cards (with envelopes) for £1.00 plus p&p

In our contemporary world of credit squeezes, spiralling prices, melting ice caps, unpredictable weather and a new Cold War, many people feel they are now living in turbulent times.

The Centre for Confidence and Well-being’s ‘Wise Words for Turbulent Times’ gift cards combine stylish graphics with insights from a number of thoughtful Scots. The pack of six cards feature quotes from Robert Burns, David Hume, Patrick Geddes and Catherine Carswell as well as two contemporary figures: the Scottish economist John Kay and Mick Jackson who was voted Scot of the Year in 2008 for his inspirational organisation WildHearts in Action. 

The cards contain some biographical notes on the thinkers and information on the quotes. The inside of the cards is blank so they can be used individually for a wide variety of occasions or given as a gift.

The Centre is a charity and any proceeds from the sale of these cards will help fund the Centre’s work.
