Tom Robbins quotes :
The highest function of love is that it makes the loved one a unique and irreplacable being.Tom Robbins
What bothers most critics of my work is the goofiness. One reviewer said I need to make up my mind if want to be funny or serious. My response is that I will make up my mind when God does, because life is a commingling of the sacred and the profane, good and evil. To try and separate them is fallacy.Tom Robbins
To some extent, Seattle remains a frontier metropolis, a place where people can experiment with their lives, and change and grow and make things happen.Tom Robbins
In Seattle, I soon found that my radical ideas and aesthetic explorations - ideas and explorations that in Richmond, Virginia, might have gotten me stoned to death with hush puppies - were not only accepted but occasionally applauded.Tom Robbins
Equality is not in regarding different things similarly, equality is in regarding different things differently.Tom Robbins
