Tom Robbins Quote: “In the end, perhaps we should simply imagine a joke; a long joke that’s continually retold in an accent too thick and strange to ever be completely understood. Life is that joke my friends. The soul is the punch line.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I’ve long tended to regard the interruption of complacency as a kind of public service.”
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: “Women are tough and rather coarse. They were built for the raw, crude work of bearing children. You’d be amazed at what they can do when they divert that baby-hatching energy into some other enterprise.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Enlightened and endarkened. The ultimate.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Like women in general, like Aries women in particular, like redheaded Aries women in greater particular, she loathed to be misunderstood. Injustice against others outraged her, injustice against herself set her to boiling like brimstone soup.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “What was it like in there? Inside a daisy?” My answer: “Like a cathedral made of mathematics and honey.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “If by the quarter of the twentieth century godliness wasn’t next to something more interesting than cleanliness, it might be time to reevaluate our notions of godliness.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Ultimately, the roast turkey must be regarded as a monument to Boomer’s love.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Freedom has long proven too heady an elixir for America’s masses, weakened and confused as they are by conflicting commitments to puritanical morality and salacious greed.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Time brought along its secretary, memory, and space brought its brat, loneliness.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Salvador Dali and fifty cents will get you a cup of clock melt.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “The Japanese have become so smitten with the Western condiment – its texture as silky as a kimono, its tang as understated as the tang of Zen – that today they have a word for mayonnaise junkie: mayora.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “It’s a privilege to love someone, to truly love them; and while it’s paradisaical if she or he loves you back, it’s unfair to demand or expect reciprocity. We should consider ourselves luck, honored, blessed that we possess the capacity to feel tenderness of such magnitude and be grateful even when that love is not returned. Love is the only game in which we win even when we lose.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “True stability results when presumed order and presumed disorder are balanced. A truly stable system expects the unexpected, is prepared to be disrupted, waits to be transformed.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “A lot of my work comes from what in Asia is called the ‘mind of wonder.’ There is not a lot of ‘mind of wonder’ writing in contemporary Western literature. I think that’s what appeals to the readers who are my fans.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “If I have been given any gift in this life, it’s my ability to live simultaneously in the rational world and the world of imagination.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I started writing when I was 5 years old. I would dictate stories to my mother, and she would copy them in a scrapbook. If she changed anything to make it, in her opinion, better, I would throw a tantrum.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “The inability to correctly perceive reality is often responsible for humans’ insane behavior. And every time they substitute an all-purpose, sloppy slang word for words that would accurately describe an emotion or a situation, it lowers their reality orientations, pushes them farther from shore, out onto the foggy waters of alienation and confusion.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Much scientific truth proved to be as hypothetical as poetic allegory. The relationshiip of those rod-connected blue and red balls to an actual atomic structure was about the same as the relationship of Christianity to the fish or the Lamb.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “You have to eat your technique. Digest it. It’s in your blood, but you’re not concerned with it anymore.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Every individual has to assume responsibility for his or her own actions, even the poor and the young. A social system that decrees otherwise is inviting intellectual atrophy and spiritual stagnation.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Summer had come to sit on New York’s face.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I would only read the novels that people classify as ‘beach books’ if I were being held prisoner and the only alternative was the ‘Book of Mormon.’”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Evidently, I’d suffered an epiphany: the subconscious realization that when it comes to coolness, nothing the human race has ever invented is more cool than a book.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Alcoholism is an imperfect spiritual longing.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Teachers who offer you the ultimate answers do not possess the ultimate answers, for if they did, they would know that the ultimate answers cannot be given, they can only be received.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “To specialize is to brush one tooth. When a person specializes he channels all of his energies through one narrow conduit; he knows one thing extremely well and is ignorant of almost everything else.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “She needed help, but God was in a meeting whenever she rang.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “My paintings are very strange – large and empty, like walls. Just the opposite of my writing, which is rich and juicy.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Must look into the botanical background of substance known as hashish,” I jotted in my journal, writing by the light of candles that grew incessantly jewel-like even as protean wafts of incense approached my snout like platters of ripe fruits borne on the back of Nubian pages.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent, not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Your petal from the salty rose.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “Sometimes one gets the idea that life thinks it’s still living in Paris in the thirties.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “If the novelist isn’t surprised by where his book ends up, he or she probably hasn’t written anything worth remembering.”
Tom Robbins Quote: “He was as nervous as a praying mantis at an atheists’ picnic...”
Tom Robbins Quote: “I believe in political solutions to political problems. But man’s primary problems aren’t political; they’re philosophical. Until humans can solve their philosophical problems, they’re condemned to solve their political problems over and over and over again. It’s a cruel, repetitious bore.”

Tom Robbins Quote: “One of the other musicians said that the tambourine is a female due to the fact that it makes a pretty jingle and is designed to be spanked. That is the more recent, patriarchal attitude, I suppose.”
