What does it mean to live a good life? The major scriptures of the world, various schools of philosophical thought, storytellers, scientists, artists, and historians have all offered answers to this question. Surprisingly, many of these answers are common among nearly all of these sources. Famed investor and philanthropist John Templeton called these commonalities the laws of life, and in The Essential Worldwide Laws of Life he gathers the best of these teachings into an accessible and inspiring primer on these valuable lessons.This handsome new volume is aimed at assisting readers of all ages and from all parts of the world to learn more aboutthe universal truths of life that transcend modern times or particular cultures in the hope that it may help them to make their lives not only more joyous but more useful. The laws that were chosen for this book are both important and possible to apply in anyone s life. Each law is presented in an essay format, with applications, opinions, stories, examples, and quotations offered to emphasize the validity of the law. Each quotation that serves as the title of an essay points to a particular law that holds true for most people under most circumstances.The material is designed to inspire as well as encourage readers, to help them consider more deeply the laws they personally live by, and to reap the rewards of their practical application.

About the Author

As a pioneer in both financial investments and philanthropy, Sir John Templeton spent a lifetime encouraging open-mindedness. Templeton started his Wall Street career in 1937 and went on to create some of the world s largest and most successful international investment funds, eventually earning the label of arguably the greatest global stock picker of the century from Money magazine. In 1972, he established the world s largest annual award given to an individual: the 1,000,000 Templeton Prize. The Prize is intended to recognize exemplary achievement in work related to life s spiritual dimension. Templeton also contributed a sizable amount of his fortune to the John Templeton Foundation, which he established in 1987. Templeton passed away in 2008, but the Foundation that bears his name continues to award millions of dollars in annual grants in pursuit of its mission to serve as a philanthropic catalyst for research on what scientists and philosophers call the big questions.
