Gary Paulsen Quote: “But life has a way of pulling the rug out from under you just when you need it least, which is what they like to call growing, I guess, but as far as I’m concerned you can have it. It seems like everything they call growing up has to jerk your guts out and just about wreck you and I’ve never been able to understand why that’s supposed to be good for you.”

Gary Paulsen Quote: “For those of you who wish to get a feel for it, get in the car and bring it up to fifty miles an hour and then stick your head and arms outside and, while driving, try to fold up a simple bath towel in the wind.”

Gary Paulsen Quote: “You never beat the game... You go in, take what you need, get out. Never stay too long and never, never try to whip the game. Stay there too long and they figure you out, start chewing at the corners on you, know your betting. Then maybe two, three of them get together and whipsaw you.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “Change is good, but sometimes leaving things the way they’ve always been is better.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “The person who reads can bail, but the person who doesn’t fails.”

Gary Paulsen Quote: “He could not play the game without hope; could not play the game without a dream.

He was alone and there was nothing for him.”

Gary Paulsen Quote: “Simple. Keep it simple. I am Brian Robeson. I have been in a plane crash. I am going to find some food. I am going to find some berries. He.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “He was not the same. The plane passing changed him, the disappointment cut him down and made him new. He was not the same and would never be again like he had been. That was one of the true things, the new things. And the other one was that he would not die, he would not let death in again.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “None of that used to be in Brian and now it was a part of him, a changed part of him, a grown part of him, and the two things, his mind and his body, had come together as well, had made a connection with each other that he didn’t quite understand.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “In measured time forty-seven days had passed since the crash. Forty-two days, he thought, since he had died and been born as the new Brian. When the plane had come and gone it had put him down, gutted him and dropped him and left him with nothing.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “The book is that is the good one is Woodsong and we are trying to finish it.”

Gary Paulsen Quote: “Never assume anything, expect the unexpected, be ready for everything all the time. And.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “If his mother hadn’t begun to see him and forced the divorce, Brian wouldn’t be here now. He.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “But perhaps more than his body was the change in his mind, or in the way he was – was becoming. I am not the same, he thought. I see, I hear differently.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “I am full of tough hope.”
Gary Paulsen Quote: “Maybe it was always that way, discoveries happened because they needed to happen.”
