      You’re reading a book and then you find a sentence that really inspires you… Eureka! Now, where do you write it?

      If you answered “On my commonplace book”, you’re right!

      Many famous thinkers and leaders kept commonplace books. Thomas Jefferson, for instance,  had commonplace books for literary comments and another one for legal notes.

      But commonplace books aren’t new at all.

      They have been used since the Middle age to compile interesting proverbs, recipes, poems and sketches.
