Words and pictures for getting back in touch with your heart: a hit in Italy, now widely available in book form for the first time.

The warmth of emotion, the closeness of a loved one, the weight of hopes and wishes: so many things in life cannot be gauged in numbers, though we can surely feel their power. Taking time out to try to measure those unmeasurable things means inching just a bit closer to their essence― do it, and you might even come to look on people and the past with a little more affection and gain a little more positive outlook on life. This collection of forty-nine unmeasurables in humorous words and pictures will gently gladden your heart when you’re feeling worn down and will make a wonderful gift, too!

Money can be measured; life cannot.
To measure the unmeasurable, you need a scale inside your soul that isn’t marked.

——Shuntaro Tanikawa
