If we are fortunate, there will be times in our lives when we read a quotation that strikes home—as if the words reminded us of something we already knew. The quote might come from a teacher, relative or friend, introducing us to thoughtful teachings that will continue to bring benefit throughout our lives.
After the publication of Quotes in twelve languages, teachers and parents expressed their appreciation. In India and Holland, teachers shared stories of applying various quotes in their classrooms. Students were immediately attracted to sharing and reflecting upon the quotes. Parents and grandparents found the quotes gave them an opportunity to open discussions and conversations with all their family members.
Several readers asked us if we could choose selected quotes to create a workbook or journal that would provide further opportunities for meaningful inquiry.
The result is Quotes Companion, which contains a selection of quotations from the writings of Tarthang Tulku from The Quotes Trilogy Collection. This book is an invitation to write, journal, draw, imagine, and open conversations.
We hope you enjoy Quotes Companion and share it with others, and we invite you to share with us your stories.
If you are interested in helping us to connect with schools, libraries, veterans homes, hospices, hospitals or have ideas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The books are free and available soon.
The word companion comes from panis, the Latin word for bread. Originally, the word was used to describe someone with whom you shared a meal.
