Probably best known for Everything I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, Robert Fulghum (b. 1937) is an internationally bestselling author whose 16 million books have been published in 27 countries and in 103 languages. Over his lifetime, Fulghum has published 10 non-fiction works and 3 novels.
Although not his most famous work, Fulghum’s Maybe, Maybe Not does contain one of my favourite quotes from the quirky Unitarian minister.
“Never, ever, regret or apologize for believing that when one man or 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.”
