Robert Fulghum Quote: “A giraffe has a black tongue twenty-seven inches long and no vocal cords. A giraffe has nothing to say. He just goes on giraffing.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Always trust your fellow man. And always cut the cards. Always trust God. And always build your house on high ground. Always love thy neighbor. And always pick a good neighborhood to live in.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “I came to understand that I am not the light or the source of the light. But light –truth, understanding, knowledge–is there, and it will only shine in many dark places if I reflect it.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Why is love easy? I don’t know. And the raccoons don’t say.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “The heart will turn to a prune if love is always by the numbers. How will you know if someone really loves you if they only meet your expectations and not your needs?”

Robert Fulghum Quote: “Life-and-death. Lifedeath. One event. One short event. Don’t forget.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Love is the grand prize and the garbage heap. Love is a spiritual root canal and the only thing that makes life worth living. Love is a little taste of always and a big bite of nothing. And love is everything in between these extremes.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “And give money to all street musicians.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “I’d like to speak a foreign language well enough to get the jokes. I’d like to talk with Socrates, and watch Michelangelo sculpt David. I’d like to see the world as it was a million years ago and a million years hence.”

Robert Fulghum Quote: “It’s the spirit here that counts. The time may be long, the vehicle may be strange or unexpected. But if the dream is held close to the heart, and imagination is applied to what there is close at hand, everything is still possible.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “It’s harder to talk about, but what I really, really, really want for Christmas is just this: I want to be 5 years old again for an hour. I want to laugh a lot and cry a lot. I want to be picked or rocked to sleep in someone’s arms, and carried up to be just one more time. I know what I really want for Christmas: I want my childhood back. People who think good thoughts give good gifts.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “So you drive as far as you can, even when you can clearly read the sign. You want to think you are exempt, that it doesn’t apply to you. But it does. Life is still a dead end. And we still have a hard time believing it.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “I’m not often aware that I am happy. But I often remember that I have been happy.”

Robert Fulghum Quote: “Everything looks better at a distance. If you made it up, you have to live it down. Everything is compost. There is no they – only us. It’s a mistake to believe everything you think. You can get used to anything. Sometimes things are just as bad as they seem. It helps if you always have somebody to kiss goodnight.”

Robert Fulghum Quote: “Doing a straight-forward, clear-cut task that has a beginning and an end balances out the complexity-without-end that often vexes the rest of my life. Sacred simplicity.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “All of these are names given me by other people, but not names I would have given myself. My name is not mine, it’s theirs. It’s a series of costumes put on my life by other people.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “My mother was pulling my leg on that one. I have collected so much gift-wrapped trash over the years from people who copped out and hurriedly bought a little plastic cheapie to give under the protective flag of good thoughts. I tell you, it is the gift that counts. Or rather, people who think good thoughts give good gifts. It ought to be a rule – the Brass Rule of Gift Exchange.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “I get tired of hearing it’s a crummy world and that people are no damned good. What kind of talk is that? I know a place in Payette, Idaho, where a cook and a waitress and a manager put everything they’ve got into laying a chicken-fried steak on you.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “This is an exercise in power – the power of mind over matter. If you don’t mind being inadequate, it doesn’t matter.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “When I’m finished, I have a sense of accomplishment. A sense of competence. I am good at doing the laundry. At least that. And it’s a religious experience, you know. Water, earth, fire – polarities of wet and dry, hot and cold, dirty and clean. The great cycles – round and round – beginning and end – Alpha and Omega, amen. I am in touch with the GREAT SOMETHING-OR-OTHER. For a moment, at least, life is tidy and has meaning.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “The leaves let go, the seeds let go, and I must let go sometimes, too, and cast my lot with another of nature’s imperfect but tenacious survivors.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “There is nothing in your budget for joy. No books, no flowers, no music, not even a cold beer. And there is nothing in your budget to give away to someone else. We don’t help people who don’t have better values than you do.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Any fool can make enough money to survive. It’s another thing to keep yourself consistently entertained. It’s a lot of work, and a lot of fun, to make a life.”

Robert Fulghum Quote: “And snow – snow is not my enemy, I tell him. Snow is God’s way of telling people to slow down and rest and stay in bed for a day. And besides, snow always solves itself. Mixes with the leaves to form more earth, I tell him. Think compost, says I.”
