„Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon.“

—  Robert Fulghum, livro All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1986), Context: Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A Beauty Bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air — explode softly — and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth — boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap either — not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination instead of death. A child who touched one wouldn't have his hand blown off.

„Some assembly is always required.“

—  Robert Fulghum, livro All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1986), Context: There’s another thing not everyone figures out right away: It’s almost impossible to go through life all alone. We need to find our support group — family, friends, companion, therapy gatherings, team, church or whatever. The kindergarten admonition applies as long as we live: “When you go out into the world, hold hands and stick together.” It’s dangerous out there — lonely, too. Everyone needs someone. Some assembly is always required.

„All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be, I learned in kindergarten.“

—  Robert Fulghum, livro All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1986), Context: All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the sand pile at Sunday School. These are the things I learned. These are the things you already know:

„I did not set out to be a writer. It's something that came to me after I was 50 years of age.“

—  Robert Fulghum
Context: I did not set out to be a writer. It's something that came to me after I was 50 years of age. And I already had the life that I wanted and the wife I wanted and at that age I was fairly clear about what was important. The success that my writing is enjoying is like finding out your rich uncle has left you a train full of hammers. I mean, how many hammers can you use? It's chocolate syrup. It's an extra. So I take it very lightly. And if I were to fall off the charts tomorrow, I've already had more fame than I deserve and more money than I've ever had in my life. The thought that I could finally pay off my Visa bill! That's rich.

„Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy.“

—  Robert Fulghum
Context: One of life's best coping mechanisms is to know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem. If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you've got a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy. A lump in the oatmeal, a lump in the throat and a lump in the breast are not the same kind of lump. One needs to learn the difference. Uh-Oh: Some Observations from Both Sides of the Refrigerator Door (2001), p. 146

„Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.“

—  Robert Fulghum
Context: The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It (1988)

„The examined life is no picnic.“

—  Robert Fulghum, livro All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1986), Context: Too much high-content information, and I get the existential willies. I keep sputtering out at intersections where life choices must be made and I either know too much or not enough. The examined life is no picnic.

„Don’t hit people. Bad things happen.“

—  Robert Fulghum, livro All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1986), Context: A six-year-old will not understand that “By and large it has been demonstrated that violence is counterproductive to the constructive interaction of persons and societies.” True. But a child can better understand that the rule out in the world and in the school is the same: Don’t hit people. Bad things happen. The child must understand this rule is connected to the first rule: People won’t share or play fair if you hit them.
