Beautiful Thoughts for Beautiful Minds, by John Scally, is an uplifting collection of pieces that are sure to leave a positive impact in the minds of readers. Miriam O’Callaghan writes the foreword, saying, “I hope your beautiful minds will take inspiration and comfort from these beautiful thoughts.”
John Scally succeeds in creating a book that gives you a sense of comfort and ease as you read through. Scally uses his own personal experiences growing up in Roscommon to illustrate how any small moment in life can be turned into something that can bring you comfort and peace.
Throughout the book, Scally helps us all to see the joy in life through a variety of sections aimed at lifting our spirits. Besides his own personal reflections, Scally adds a collection of tales to make you laugh, pieces showing the lighthearted, fun side of religion and personal interviews/thoughts of notable people like Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and others.
Beautiful Thoughts for Beautiful Minds also includes a section on the importance of sport in our lives. Irish Rugby legend Tony Ward says that Scally’s work is “A book full of heart-warming pieces that are guaranteed to lift the spirits.”
John Scally also stresses the importance of getting young readers involved in books, and adds children’s stories which you will find towards the end of the book meant for younger readers or anyone young at heart. He says, “Often times we underestimate children. They, more than any other group, have beautiful minds untainted by cynicism or disillusionment.”
