Best Quotes by Tom Robbins (Top 10)

  1. We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.
  2. 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.
  3. The highest function of love is that it makes the loved one a unique and irreplaceable being.
  4. Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business.
  5. It is never too late to have a happy childhood
  6. When two people meet and fall in love, there's a sudden rush of magic. Magic is just naturally present then. We tend to feed on that gratuitous magic without striving to make any more. One day we wake up and find that the magic is gone. We hustle to get it back, but by then it's usually too late, we've used it up. What we have to do is work like hell at making additional magic right from the start. It's hard work, but if we can remember to do it, we greatly improve our chances of making love stay.
  7. There are many things worth living for, a few things worth dying for, and nothing worth killing for.
  8. We're our own dragons as well as our own heroes, and we have to rescue ourselves from ourselves.
  9. The unhappy person resents it when you try to cheer him up, because that means he has to stop dwelling on himself and start paying attention to the universe. Unhappiness is the ultimate form of self-indulgence. When you're unhappy, you get to pay a lot of attention to yourself. You get to take yourself oh so very seriously.
  10. There is no such thing as a weird human being, It's just that some people require more understanding than others.
