October 19: Don’t Quote Me

19 Oct

October 19: What is your favorite quote?

I posted this one in reference to something else not too long ago.

“When the mystery of the connection goes, love goes. It’s that simple. This suggests that it isn’t love that is so important to us but the mystery itself. The love connection may be merely a device to put us in contact with the mystery, and we long for love to last so that the ecstasy of being near the mystery will last. It is contrary to the nature of mystery to stand still. Yet it’s always there, somewhere, a world on the other side of the mirror (or the Camel pack), a promise in the next pair of eyes that smile at us. We glimpse it when we stand still.
The romance of new love, the romance of solitude, the romance of objecthood, the romance of ancient pyramids and distant stars are means of making contact with the mystery. When it comes to perpetuating it, however, I got no advice. But I can and will remind you of two of the most important facts I know:
1. Everything is part of it.
2. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”

-Tom Robbins, Still Life With Woodpecker

I love it so much (and have for many years) that I am considering (and have been for many years) where on my body would be there perfect place to get a tattoo that reads, “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
