Tom Robbins Quote: “But why diminish your soul being run-of-the-mill at something? Mediocrity: now there is ugliness for you. Mediocrity’s a hairball coughed up on the Persian carpet of Creation.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I love myself,” he said. “But it’s unrequited.”
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: “I don’t want to give the impression that I hold daily conversations with my household appliances, although my toaster is as old as Drew Barrymore and almost as talented.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “You are an ignorant schoolgirl. You think civilization is a good thing.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “I like to think of myself as a fiction writer who liked art enough to write about it for a while, and then went on to his fiction.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I went to a large consolidated school in Appalachia. And I wrote the story when I was in the second grade and I took it up to the third floor to the school newspaper office that was written and edited by juniors and seniors.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I have never ever Googled myself, in fact I think the Christian right prohibits such things.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Although the surface of our planet is two-thirds water, we call it the Earth. We say we are earthlings, not waterlings. Our blood is closer to seawater than our bones to soil, but that’s no matter. The sea is the cradle we all rocked out of, but it’s to dust that we go. From the time that water invented us, we began to seek out dirt. The further we separate ourselves from the dirt, the further we separate ourselves from ourselves. Alienation is a disease of the unsoiled.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “People tend to take everything too seriously. Especially themselves.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Should a person possess a heart that is as light as a feather, then that person is granted immortality.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Kudra was amused by Alobar’s tentative polka until her eyes fell upon the tumescent protrusion dancing with him. Disgusting she thought. An erection is just inappropriate. Then she realized with a shock that she was so wet that children could have sailed toy boats in her underpants.”
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: “It’s hard to say who’s a greater threat to the world, an ambitious CEO with a big ad budget or a crafty cleric with an obsolete Bible verse.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard god who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate!”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Being able to create your own work, being able to indulge your own fantasies is so much better than journalism, so much more fulfilling than journalism, to me, that as long as I can continue to write fiction, I shall.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Self-esteem is for sissies. Accept that you’re a pimple and try to keep a lively sense of humor about it. That way lies grace – and maybe even glory.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Okay, it is what it is and I am what I it, but its isness and my itness seem to be stretching the meaning of “is” and “it.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “You wonder if God doesn’t have an answering machine to screen out the prayers of the venal and the boring? And in which category has he placed you?”
Tom Robbins Quote: “You don’t need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Don’t even listen, simply wait. Don’t even wait. Be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you. To be unmasked, it has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet. – Franz Kafka.”
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: “Reality is contradictory. And it’s paradoxical.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on – series polygamy – until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Had Ken Kesey opened Electric Kool-Aid stands on every college campus in the country, it would have made a lesser contribution than Life to the creation of that era of unprecedented foment we like to call “the sixties.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Carelessness is a weakness that isn’t tolerated in this order,” he says in a voice that the average housewife would have to take out of the freezer at two in the afternoon if she wanted it thawed in time for supper.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “You know a trillion times more about art than me. But I’ve learned that it isn’t necessary to know all that much. You just make what you wanna see, right? It’s a game, right? It’s like being paid for dreaming.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Only the obtuse are unappreciative of paradox.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I asked Mr. Wrangle what you were like. He said you were hornet juice and rosebuds in a container of gazelle meat.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Usually, autobiography is such an indulgence of the ego.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “What difference does it make if the Gospel is mostly a lie? It’s an engrossing story and the words of its hero are excellent words to live by, even today.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Oh, no, darlin’, none o’ that. Sure and they destroyed some cells, no doubt about it, but ‘twas for the good. If you want your tree to produce plenty o’ fruit, you’ve got to cut it back from time to time. Same thing with your neural cells. Some people might call it brain damage. I call it prunin’.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “She thought these thoughts to herself as in her mind’s eye she ran naked through the woods, hugging trees.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Above all, have a good time. If you aren’t enjoying writing it, you can hardly expect someone else to enjoy reading it.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “Our religion, our party, our tribe, our town, our school, our race, our nation. Believe. Belong. Behave. Or Be damned.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I never outline. I don’t work from an outline. I have no idea where the book is going. I mean, even two-thirds of the way through, I don’t know how it’s going to end.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Sissy Hankshaw once taught a parakeet to hitchhike.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “They warn us when we’re kids that we’re going to have to suffer, but they neglect to mention the indignity. What self-respecting fetus, if shown its future as a proctology patient, boot-camp recruit, or game show contestant, would still elect to be born?”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Those who willingly accept being conned are as corrupt as those who con them.”
