Quotes Companion Stories
Received the books this morning and have read them twice. I was blown away by the many (quotes) I have experienced in my life both for good and bad. I intend to read them again maybe several times to recognize their importance in a persons life. I intend to give them to my family members to read and hope it is a learning process that is beneficial to each of them. You don’t have to be a member of any certain religion or beliefs to benefit from them.Thank you so much for sharing them with me. My only regret is that I didn’t pay attention enough when I was younger.
…the quotes companion has been wonderful. We are working our way through the quotes together each week. We first read the quote together and spend some time quietly journaling our initial responses. We then get together in a circle and practice our sharing, listening, and responding skills in a circle share. Students have told me after class that they love the book, and even though we have shelves to store them on in class, several students have shared that they take the book home with them and enjoy reading through the quotes on their own. We have not yet made our way through all the quotes but I am looking forward to exploring it more and hearing the students thoughts, responses, and connections to the book.
