Summary: Robert Fulghum's books All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It, Uh-Oh, Maybe (Maybe Not), and From Beginning to End have struck a chord with readers everywhere, making him one of the bestselling authors of our time with six New York Times bestsellers in a row. There are currently more than 14 million copies of these books in print in 27 languages and 93 countries.In Words I Wish I Wrote, Fulghum reveals the works of writers who have inspired him. As he says, "When I look deep beneath my declarations I see the underlying thoughts of others. As hard as I have tried to speak in my own voice, I realize now that nothing I have said is original or unique. My expressions echo and imitate the statements of others.

And they have spoken of the way in words I wish I had written -- in language I could not improve upon".The confirming statements, quotes, and credos that influenced Fulghum through the years are collected here, organized thematically into such sections as Companions, God, Bene-Dictions, Contra-Dictions, Simplify, and Believe. Each section begins with a short, introductory essay by Fulghum followed by inspiring passages drawn from a diverse group of sources, from Jerry Garcia to Albert Camus, Dylan Thomas to Franz Kafka, Marcel Proust to Beatrix Potter.
