If my vision was good enough, I’d be an astronaut  (Robert Crais Quotes) First and foremost I am a commercial writer, and I hope to entertain people. But having said that, I’m in love with the relationship between humans and dogs, and the more I learned about what our military working dogs are doing, I wanted to at least share with people what an important role these animals have in all our lives.  (Robert Crais Quotes) When dogs fulfill their roles they are ecstatically happy  (Robert Crais Quotes) Dogs give us something just as we give something to them  (Robert Crais Quotes) I was digging for stuff in a used bookstore, and I came upon ‘Little Sister.’ I fell in love with Chandler that night. I fell right down the rabbit hole of crime fiction  (Robert Crais Quotes) Pike put down the cat. He slid from Pike’s arms like molasses and puddled at his feet  (Robert Crais Quotes) Everyone knows dogs. Most people love dogs. I think most American families probably have a dog, but I don’t think people really realize or understand just how wonderful and special dogs are  (Robert Crais Quotes) I began to encounter real-life stories of dogs protecting their wounded or dying or dead handler... or dogs refusing to leave the bodies of the people they were bonded to, sitting in cemeteries for days or sometimes weeks. You find these stories endlessly  (Robert Crais Quotes) I had a big Akita, Yoshi, who was fabulous. I loved him. We lost him when he was 12, and I’ve never been able to replace him. Normally, most people lose a pet and get another and keep going on. But it just felt wrong to me; it felt disloyal  (Robert Crais Quotes) At Lackland Air Force Base, they make an effort to retrain military dogs that suffer from PTSD. It’s a lengthy, long process. The treatment is much the same as it would be for people, but it’s a difficult road back  (Robert Crais Quotes) There’s the Hollywood sign; there’s Griffith Observatory; there’s the great, amazing Los Angeles Basin. It’s 465 square miles of insanity and the best food on the planet.  (Robert Crais Quotes) No other animal bonds to a human being the way a dog does. And I suspect there is no other animal to which human beings can bond the way we can bond to a dog.  (Robert Crais Quotes) Sometimes I am so dry that people don’t know I’m kidding and think I’m being serious. I enjoy this because their reactions are often funny.  (Robert Crais Quotes) I had wanted to be a novelist for so long, but I didn’t have a story. That story came from the death of my father, and wrestling with how to help my mother. Writing it allowed me to work through my fears, frustrations and desires. I wanted control over the situation. And I wasn’t sure I would have any in real life.  (Robert Crais Quotes) I think every writer of detective fiction writing today has been influenced by Mr. Parker. I’m of a generation that followed Robert Parker, and it was impossible to read the genre and not be influenced by him.  (Robert Crais Quotes) My first job was cleaning dog kennels. It was especially, ah, aromatic during those hot, humid Louisiana summers, but it prepared me for Hollywood.  (Robert Crais Quotes) I don’t think about the gender of my readers or about reader expectations. I’m frankly scared to. I figured out a long time ago that if I tried to guess the audience, it would be like me trying to guess which stocks to buy.  (Robert Crais Quotes) It’s easy to sound good. All you do is leave in the parts where you act tough and forget the parts where you get shoved around.  (Robert Crais Quotes) I write characters and stories that move me, and I write from the heart  (Robert Crais Quotes) If my vision was good enough, I’d be an astronaut  (Robert Crais Quotes) People want you to be ordinary  (Robert Crais Quotes) Efficiency and focus are the keys to success  (Robert Crais Quotes) I love the fact that you collaborate with your readers when you write a book  (Robert Crais Quotes) The sense of smell in all dogs is their primary doorway to the world around them  (Robert Crais Quotes) Adults always wonder what to say and how to say it when they’re talking to a child. You want to be wise, but all you are is a child yourself in a larger body. Nothing is ever what it seems. The things that you think you know are never certain. I know that now. I wish that I didn’t, but I do  (Robert Crais Quotes) She asked me why I always had something flip to say. I said that I didn’t know, but having been blessed with the gift, I felt obliged to use it  (Robert Crais Quotes) It’s easy to sound good. All you do is leave in the parts where you act tough and forget the parts where you get shoved around  (Robert Crais Quotes) Some of us find our way with a single light to guide us; others lose themselves even when the star field is as sharp as a neon ceiling. Ethics may not be situational, but feelings are. We learn to adjust, and, over time, the stars we use to guide ourselves come to reside within rather than without  (Robert Crais Quotes) Everything we are is anchored in our childhoods. The drama comes in how we deal with it. Are we slaves to our past, or can we rise above it? This is the stuff of great stories  (Robert Crais Quotes) I have these huge black foam boards on the wall, and tacked to them, I have these white punch cards with my story ideas, scenes and notes  (Robert Crais Quotes)
