A Quote by Robert Fulghum on dancing, journey, thought, and exploration

My own movement of thought is not meant to be a straight point-to-point, linear line of march, but horizontal exploration from one area of interest to another.  There is no ultimate destination - no finish line to cross, no final conclusion to be reached.  It's the way I feel about dancing - you move around a lot, not to get somewhere, but to be somewhere in time.

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on mind over matter, inadequate, and power

This is an exercise in power - the power of mind over matter.  If you don't mind being inadequate, it doesn't matter.

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on names, masks, and costumes

All of these are names given me by other people, but not names I would have given myself.  My name is not mine, it's theirs.  It's a series of costumes put on my life by other people.

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on names, dogs, affection, and voice tone

The name is not important anymore - it's the tone that counts.  I feel like an old dog I know.  He will come to any name you call him, just so long as your demeanor carries with it the promise of affection and food

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on art, artist, artists task, being, and creating

An artists job is to see.  And to go out in the world and see it firsthand, just as it is; to report with line and words what is seen.  To be in the world, not just study about the world, that is the artists task

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on belief, imagination, truth, and dream

Never, ever, regret or apologize for believing that when one man or one woman decides to risk addressing the world with truth, the world may stop what it is doing and hear.  There is too much evidence to the contrary.  When we cease believing this, the music will surely stop.  The myth of the impossible dream is more powerful than all the facts of history.
