This book has over 450 Buddhist quotes and quotes inspired by Buddhism, especially compiled and rewritten to suit today's modern world and to guide you through your year, if not every year. It is intentional that there is no index, that is so you can either read these quotes, one page at a time or, as I suggest, randomly select a page each day to find your motivation, insight or inspiration. Many of the quotes in this book originated from the original Buddha scriptures. Some are modern variations or even misquotes that have taken root, some have been coined by many practising Buddhists, and there are many of my own Buddhism inspired quotes. Whatever their source, just to reduce some of the wordiness and bring them into the modern day, I have rewritten many of them to reach a wider audience. So, whether you follow the philosophy of Buddhist teachings or not, I am sure that you will benefit from the Buddhist and Buddhism inspired quotes, and the simple messages they all contain.

About the Author

Nearly thirty years ago, Bodvoc went to Tibet and what started out as merely a back-packing holiday, changed his life forever. With his guide Nina, he travelled from the lowlands through the foothills and up into the mountains of Tibet. Visiting many villages, Buddhist shrines, temples and monastery along the way. During his thirty-one tour, Bodvoc was amazed at the friendliness and generosity of all those he met. From the subsistence farmers to town dwellers, from the Buddhist Monks to the city folk, his tour was indeed an enlightening experience. No small wonder that this once in a lifetime holiday ended up becoming a sort of pilgrimage, where he converted to Buddhism and has been a practising Buddhist ever since. Now many years on, Bodvoc works with adults with Special Needs. Using the skills he has learned through Buddhism teachings now as a life skills coach, helping many of those he works with to rejoin the community and lead full, active and rewarding lives.
