Robert Fulghum meaning of life

Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.

 

We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.

 

If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.

 

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life – learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.

 

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.

 

The world does not need tourists who ride by in a bus clucking their tongues. The world as it is needs those who will love it enough to change it, with what they have, where they are.

 

Love is a fabric which never fades, no matter how often it is washed in the water of adversity and grief.

 

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.

 

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.

 

Sticks and stones will break our bones, but words will break our hearts.

 

I believe it is in my nature to dance by virtue of the beat of my heart, the pulse of my blood and the music in my mind.

My secret agenda is to convey my values to my kids.

 

Almost anything can be dealt with if people are of good will and light hearts and strong values.

 

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.

 

Dreams are more powerful than facts.
