Monday quote by Robert Fulghum

A fellow blogger reminded me recently of the writing and wisdom of Robert Fulghum. I particularly like this quote taken from his work “All I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten”. I was really pleased to learn that he has written several books and I plan to track them down at my local public library.

Robert says: “Think of what a better world it would be if we all – the whole world – had cookies and milk about 3 o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nations to always put things back where we found them and cleaned up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is better to hold hands and stick together.”

      I will be using the wonderful library interloan system to track down his other works Ruth. Perhaps you could review “From beginning to end” on your blog for us all?

    I’d have to read the whole book again to do that. Just now I have a pile of library books to get through and much less leisure time now that I’m back at work (sigh).

      Work can really cut into reading time. Enjoy that pile of books as time allows Ruth:-) I enjoy your reviews.
