Tom Robbins Quote: “South Richmond was a neighborhood of mouse holes, lace curtains, Sears catalogs, measles epidemics, baloney sandwiches- and men who knew more about the carburetor than they knew about the clitoris.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Leave it to a naive world-saver like you to view our love as a Sacred Cause when in actual fact all it was was some barking at the moon.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Certainly that sputterless little candleflame of the mediocre mind known as ‘common sense’ has never produced anything worth celebrating.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Early religions were like muddy ponds with lots of foliage. Concealed there, the fish of the soul could splash and feed. Eventually, however, religions became aquariums. Then hatcheries. From farm fingerling to frozen fish stick is a short swim.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “What mattered to Abu was the music of the sentence. ‘A shadow does not belong to the object that casts it.’ To Abu, it was a little poem. And in general, it was the poetics, the music of things that tossed his confetti.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I work with pen and paper. That’s my favorite way to write. I love the way the ink sinks into the wood, soaks into the wood pulp. There’s something about that process that’s so organic.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “Well, there’s one thing to be said for money. It can make you rich.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Anyone who maintains absolute standards of good and evil is dangerous. As dangerous as a maniac with a loaded revolver. In fact, the person who maintains absolute standards of good and evil usually is the maniac with the revolver.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “What an electric heater perched upon the rim of the bathtub of the world that dead Jesus was.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Magic things are fond of deceptions.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “A spirit cannot soar with only one wing.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “My life is not merely a public phenomenon, it is a solitary adventure as well.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Love is private and primitive and a bit on the funky and frightening side. I think of the Luna card in the Tarot deck: some strange, huge crustacean, its armor glistening and its pinchers wiggling, clatters out of a pool while wild dogs howl at a bulging moon. Underneath the hearts and flowers, love is loony like that. Attempts to housebreak it, to refine it, to dress the crabs up like doves and make them sing soprano always result in thin blood. You end up with a parody.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “The only bubble in the flat champagne of February is Valentine’s Day. It was no accident that our ancestors pinned Valentine’s Day on February’s shirt: he or she lucky enough to have a lover in frigid, antsy February has cause for celebration, indeed.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Some folks hide, and some folks seek, and seeking, when it’s mindless, neurotic, desperate, or pusillanimous can be a form of hiding.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I like travelers, but I don’t like tourists. The difference is that travelers don’t shop and they don’t play golf.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “The stiff-witted and academic seem not to comprehend that it is entirely possible to be ironic and sincere at the same instant, that a knowing tongue in cheek does not necessarily preclude an affectionate glow in heart.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “When they tell you to grow up, they mean stop growing. Reach a nice level plateau and settle there, predictable and unchanging, no longer a threat.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “More immediately, by waxing soulful you will have granted yourself the possibility of ecstatic participation in what the ancients considered a divinely animated universe. And on a day to day basis, folks, it doesn’t get any better than that.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “In the life of the individual, an aesthetic sensibility is both more authentic and more commendable than a political or religious one.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “The loony legacy of money was that the arithmetic by which things were measured had become more valuable than the things themselves.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “How can one person be more real than any other? Well, some people do hide and others seek. Maybe those who are in hiding... are simply inauthentic... But there are folks who know and aren’t afraid to look and won’t turn tail should they find it – and if they never do, they’ll have a good time anyway because nothing, neither the terrible truth or the absence of it, is going to cheat them out of one honest breath of earth’s sweet gas.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Zippers are primal and modern at the very same time. On the one hand, your zipper is primitive and reptilian, on the other, mechanical and slick. A zipper is where the Industrial Revolution meets the Cobra Cult.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Whether I’m unduly sensitive to this pain because I’m a princess – could the whole world be the pea under my mattress? – I don’t know, but because I’m a princess, I might be able to do something to help lessen humanity’s pain.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “First I think I was interested in the stories, and later on, I became more interested in the language itself, so the stories became almost secondary, but it was kind of a background music for my life.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “A lot of aspiring writers are all ready to write a novel, but they don’t know how to write sentences.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “He worked too hard, smiled too little and dined as one indifferent to both flavor and fate; he clearly was a hero in need of rescue by a princess.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “A thing is good because it is good, not because it is natural. A thing is bad because it is bad, not because its artificial. It is not a damn iota better to be bitten by a rattlesnake than shot by a gun.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I journey to the east, where I have been told, there are men who have taught death some manners.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Maybe what I admired most about John Steinbeck is that he never mortgaged his 45-acre heart for a suite in an ivory tower.”
