Robert Krulwich Quotes
- A seed, after all, is an embryo, a potential plant waiting for its moment to grow. It has what it needs to begin. But it can also put itself on pause. It can wait.
- What happens if you are the last (the very, very last) of your species, and you die – and humans notice? We live, increasingly, at a time when extinctions are recorded, remembered, and the last animal (or plant) in its line, by virtue of its being last, becomes a kind of celebrity. Its finality becomes a thing to honor.
- If you want to be a poet, you can just write it on a napkin, and it’s the length of the napkin, I guess. But usually you decide you’ll rhyme it, or you’ll have a formula. In radio, that’s something called, ‘Close your eyes and listen.’
- If I were king of the world, babies born in airplanes, balloons and blimps would, instead of choosing to be German, Maldivian or American, all get special heavenly blue passports with a stork on the cover labeled ‘Sky Baby’ – and they’d be allowed to come and go anywhere they please.
- When you talk or write or film, you work with the music inside you, the music that formed you. Different generations have different musics in them, so whatever they do, it’s going to come out differently, and it will speak in beats of their own generation.
- The more borders we have, the more quarrels, the more wars. That’s one way to think about borders – they’re trouble.

Jad Abumrad And Robert Krulwich
Jad and Krulwich they first met when Krulwich ripped up Abumrad’s script for a fundraising promo and then proceeded to improvise a new one — somehow mentioning aliens in the process. The two soon started to meet for weekly breakfasts to chat about science and other worldly matters, and from that the beginnings of Radiolab emerged. Their first tests came in the form of a pitch to Ira Glass, host of This American Life. They submitted a dramatic account on how to properly fold an American flag, which was met with less than enthusiastic reviews.
