Robert Fulghum Quote: “We are the only creatures that both laugh and weep. I think it’s because we are the only creatures that see the difference between the way things are and the way they might be.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “We even make ourselves up, fusing what we are with what we wish into what we must become. I’m not sure why it must be so, but it is.”

Robert Fulghum Quote: “I think my writing is part of my ministry.”
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: “Desire is the intangible quality that has more impact on success than talent, education, or IQ. You can’t see desire, but you can feel its presence, and see its results in the lives of successful people.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “I use Cheer. I like the idea of a happy wash.”
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: “And I’m not confused about the lack of, or the need for, imagination in low or high places. We could do better we must do better. There are far worse things to drop on people than crayolas.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “It’s not that I’m not grateful for all this attention. It’s just that fame and fortune ought to add up to more than fame and fortune.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Knowledge is meaningful only if it is reflected in action. The human race has found out the hard way that we are what we do, not just what we think.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “You may never have proof of your importance but you are more important than you think. There are always those who couldn’t do without you. The rub is that you don’t always know who.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Machines and relatives get most of the yelling. But never trees. As for people, well, the Solomon islanders may have a point. Yelling at living thing does tend to kill the spirit in them. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will break our hearts.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “You know, without realizing it we fill important places in each other’s lives.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “And give money to all street musicians.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Sometimes history knocks at the most ordinary door to see if anyone is home. Sometimes someone is.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Imagination is better than knowledge.”
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.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “What I notice is that every adult or child I give a new set of Crayolas to goes a little funny. The kids smile, get a glazed look on their faces, pour the crayons out, and just look at them for a while... The adults always get the most wonderful kind of sheepish smile on their faces – a mixture of delight and nostalgia and silliness. And they immediately start telling you about all their experiences with Crayolas.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Whenever life becomes Tinkertoys, the queen may be sacrificed.”
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: “Imagination is more important than information.” Einstein said that, and he should know.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “Imagination is more important than information. Einstein said that, and he should know. And they come. And they look. And we push. And they fly. We to stay and die on our beds. They to go and die howsoever, yet inspiring those who come after them to find their own edge. And fly.”
Robert Fulghum Quote: “The pig was so earnest. So sincere. So very “there.” The pig brought gravity and mythic import to this well-worn fairy tale.”
