This is more than just daily meditation book--this is a book of Twelve Step quotes and daily reflections that come right from the meeting rooms of recovery. These are the 'Aha' moments shared by people in the program, like: "Humility is not thinking less about yourself, but rather thinking about yourself less." Each timeless piece of practical recovery wisdom like this is followed by a three-paragraph reflection of "What it was like, what happened, and what it's like now." The most loved recovery quotes, across our Twelve Step programs are here: "There are no victims, only volunteers--you always have a choice," and they instantly offer the perspective we need to keep growing along spiritual lines. Fill your spiritual toolkit with your favorite quotes, "Once you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change," and see why these unique quotes resonate deeply with members--because they come directly from the meeting rooms of recovery. These quotes--by newcomers as well as old timers--offer people in recovery the experience, strength, and hope, they need, just when they need it: one day at a time. This book will remind you that "It is what it is, but it will become what you make it."

The 365 Twelve Step Quotes collected here are the ones we hear in meetings, the quotes and sayings that offer us instant relief and revelation--the ones we wish we had written down and saved. Now you have them all at your fingertips. Quotes like, "We go to meetings for relief; but we work the Steps for recovery," and "Half measures do avail us something--it's just the half we don't want," and "When I say NO to you I'm saying YES to me," and hundreds of others help us all in the Fellowship both develop our practice of daily meditation and deepen our experience in the program. The Wisdom of the Rooms aids in our individual practice of recovery as well as provides inspiration for group discussions, reminding us all that "I'll never be all right, until it's all right, right now."

Other Wisdom examples include quotes such as:

  • "Instead of telling God how big your fears are, start telling your fears how big your God is."
  • "The most spiritual thing you can do today is to help someone else."
  • "Wisdom is the knowledge you learn after you know it all."
  • "Let go of your old ideas, even the good ones."
  • "When you own your part, you own your power."
  • "Anger is one letter away from danger."
  • And hundreds more...
