    Tom Robbins
    “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.”
    Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker

  • #7
    Tom Robbins
    “Don't let yourself be victimized by the age you live in. It's not the
    times that will bring us down, any more than it's society. When you
    put the blame on society, then you end up turning to society for the
    solution. Just like those poor neurotics at the Care Fest. There's a
    tendency today to absolve individuals of moral responsiblity and treat
    them as victims of social circumstance. You buy that, you pay with
    your soul. It's not men who limit women, it's not straights who limit
    gays, it's not whites who limit black. what limits people is lack of
    character. What limites people is that they don't have the fucking
    nerve or imagination to star in their own movie, let alone direct it.
    Yuck....It's a wonderful time to be alive. As long as one has enough
    dynamite. --pg. 116-117”
    Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker
