Anne Lamott Quote: “My mother was a not-too-devoted atheist. She went to Episcopal church on Christmas Eve every year, and that was mostly it.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I cry intermittently, like a summer rain. I don’t feel racked by the crying; in fact, it hydrates me. Then rage wells up in me, and I want to take a crowbar to all the cars in the neighborhood.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Sometimes I think God loves the ones who most desperately ache and are most desperately lost – his or her wildest, most messed-up children – the way you’d ache and love a screwed-up rebel daughter in juvenile hall.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I do not love to garden. I love other people’s gardens, and I like cut flowers. I have Astroturf and a whole lot of high-quality plastic flowers stuck in the dirt of our front yard. These are quite a lovely sight and bring to mind many e. e. cummings poems. People used to give me potted plants and trees, and what happened to them is really too horrible to go into here.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Maybe it’s wishful thinking, this snaggly faith of mine, or maybe it’s Miles Davis saying, Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Mine was a patchwork God, sewn together from bits of rag and ribbon, Eastern and Western, pagan and Hebrew, everything but the kitchen sink and Jesus.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “All I ever wanted was to belong, to wear that hat of belonging.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “I’ve always thought I could use my brain and my heart to jockey everyone around to the good. But life is not jockeyable. When you try, you make people infinitely crazier than they already were, including or especially yourself.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Talking to the parents of older kids was helpful for me, since parents of kids the same age as yours won’t admit how horrible their children are.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “My heart was broken and my head was just barely inhabitable.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Why couldn’t Jesus command us to obsess over everything, to try to control and manipulate people, to try not to breathe at all, or to pay attention, stomp away to brood when people annoy us, and then eat a big bag of Hershey’s Kisses in bed?”
Anne Lamott Quote: “You get your intuition back when you make space for it, when you stop the chattering of the rational mind.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “We’re out there somewhere between the known and the unknown, trying to reel in both for a closer look.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I still encourage anyone who feels at all compelled to write to do so. I just try to warn people who hope to get published that publication is not all it is cracked up to be. But writing is.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “One of the gifts of being a writer is that it gives you an excuse to do things, to go places and explore. Another is that writing motivates you to look closely at life, at life as it lurches by and tramps around.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “She quoted the Reverend James Forbes as saying, “Nobody gets into heaven without a letter of reference from the poor.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I spent my whole life helping my mother carry around her psychic trunks like a bitter bellhop. So a great load was lifted when she died, and my life was much easier.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Getting all your addictions under control is like trying to put an octopus to bed.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “On the spiritual path, all the dreck and misery is transformed, maybe not that same day, but still transformed into spiritual fuel or insight.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “Laughter is the key that grace has arrived.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “All criticism hurts me. I’m so in the wrong business.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Sam said to me the other day, “I love you like 20 tyrannosauruses on 20 mountaintops,” and this is the exact same way in which I love him.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Rationality squeezes out much that is rich and juicy and fascinating.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “When I was young, I used to be so jealous of other girls that it crippled me.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Jealousy has always been my cross, the weakness and woundedness in me that has most often caused me to feel ugly and unlovable, like the Bad Seed.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Most of me was glad when my mother died. She was a handful, but not in a cute, festive way. More in a life-threatening way, that had caused me a long time ago to give up all hope of ever feeling good about having had her as a mother.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I spend most of my time alone, because I so value and thrive in the quiet. Heaven.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I believe in listening to what calls you from your heart and your spirit and if you do it badly, like learning to dance, you do it badly or you’re going to kick yourself when you grow old and you meant to do it.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Toni Morrison said, “The function of freedom is to free someone else,” and if you are no longer wracked or in bondage to a person or a way of life, tell your story.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “She felt as if the mosaic she had been assembling out of life’s little shards got dumped to the ground, and there was no way to put it back together.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I wish there were shortcuts to wisdom and self-knowledge: cuter abysses or three-day spa wilderness experiences. Sadly, it doesn’t work that way. I so resent this.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Grace arrived, like the big, loopy stitches with which a grandmotherly stranger might baste your hem temporarily.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “There are these people who keep taking you in and feeding you and loving you and making the world a tiny bit safer than it feels. People have community and family, but existentially we are deeply isolated.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “My mother’s eyes were large and brown, like my son’s, but unlike Sam’s, they were always frantic, like a hummingbird who can’t quite find the flower but keeps jabbing around.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “When we are stunned to the place beyond words, we’re finally starting to get somewhere. It is so much more comfortable to think that we know what it all means, what to expect and how it all hangs together. When we are stunned to the place beyond words, when an aspect of life takes us away from being able to chip away at something until it’s down to a manageable size and then to file it nicely away, when all we can say in response is “Wow,” that’s a prayer.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I just try to love and serve everyone, and bring everyone water, and lend an ear; that’s what Jesus said to do.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “You know how I always say that laughter is carbonated holiness? Well, Robin was the ultimate proof of that, and bubbles are spirit made visible.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “It is in many people’s best interest for you not to find yourself, but it only matters that it is in yours, and the whole world’s, to proceed.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I’ve always understood that meditation had to be part of – or was part of the natural path and so I’ve always sort of dabbled in it.”
