Question
I need help finding the exact page number of this quote that I am using in my college paper. I do not have the book, only the quote because it is famous, but in order to cite it correctly, I need the page number.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around”. Leo Buscaglia, Born for love: Reflections on Loving.

Answer
Hello

Using books.google.com, I was able to search within one edition that suggests it is on page 372.

If you have never used google books, it is perfect for this application!

Here is the link to my search query:

Expertise

As an instructor of literature and the humanities, my experience is as broad as the experience I have gained in the classroom. As a published author and journalist, I have first hand industry experience. Between the two, I have the experience, knowledge, and research experience that could certainly answer any questions that may be asked of me.

Experience

Quite specifically, as an instructor I am an extremely well qualified candidate as an initial resource as well as a person who knows specifically where to gather the correct information at any given time. As a published journalist and novelist, my experience broadens into the fundimental understanding of the craft and its application and business. I was also previously an AllExperts expert several years ago, and was well received by all who I helped.
