(About Death & Dying, Fear, Life, People)

To be or not to be isn't the question. The question is how to prolong being.
Tom Robbins

What is it that separates human beings from the so-called lower animals Well, as I see it, its exactly one half-dozen significant things Humor, Imagination, Eroticism- as opposed to the mindless, instinctive mating of glowworms or raccoons- Spirituality, Rebelliousness, and Aesthetics, an appreciation of beauty for its own sake.
Tom Robbins

The narrow, no-nonsense skeptic is every bit as naive as the breezy-brained New Age believer.
Tom Robbins

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

To achieve the impossible; it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought.
Tom Robbins
