About this Quote
This quote by Robin Williams is a humorous way of saying that people who rely on drugs to cope with life's struggles are avoiding reality. He implies that those who use drugs to escape their problems are not dealing with them in a healthy way. Instead of facing their issues head-on, they are using drugs as a crutch to avoid the reality of their situation. This quote is a reminder that drugs can be a dangerous way to cope with life's difficulties and that it is important to find healthier ways to manage stress and anxiety. It is also a reminder that reality is unavoidable and that it is important to face it head-on in order to find solutions to our problems.

"The world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car... a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel. They expect little and as a result they get little"
