Uncommon thoughts

December 15, 2009

One of those books with uncommon thoughts on common things – ‘It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It’ by Robert Fulghum.

‘We are the only creatures that both laugh and weep … it’s because we are the only creatures that see the difference between the way things are and the way they might be …

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge –
That myth is more potent than history.
I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts –
That hope always triumphs over experience …’
