The quotations in Words I Wish I Wrote reflect the most important ideas underlying Fulghum's living and thinking. This is his evidence that, as he's gone about finding his way, he's had great companions.
The confirming statements, quotes, and credos that Fulghum recorded in his journals for years are collected here, organized thematically into such chapters as Companions, God, Bene-Dictions, Contra-Dictions, Simplify, Lafter, and Believe. Each begins with Fulghum's own insightful, introductory words, 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. Then, at the end of each chapter, Fulghum offers readers his own personal commentary on the sources - where he was introduced to their words, why he returns to them again and again, and how they may change you.
