Anne Lamott Quote: “Anything that leaves you more fearful, more isolated, more disconnected from other people, more full of judgment or self-hatred, is not of God, does not follow the Rule of Love – and you should stop doing it.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “When we agree to being part of something bigger than our own wired, fixated minds, we are saved.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I see that children fill the existential hollowness many people feel; that when we have children, we know they will need us, and maybe love us, but we don’t have a clue how hard it is going to be.”
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: “Write as if your parents are dead.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “More than any other sentence I have ever come across, I love Ram Dass’s line that when all is said and done, we are all just walking each other home.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Sometimes it feels like God has reached down and touched me, blessed me a thousand times over, and sometimes it all feels like a mean joke, like God’s advisers are Muammar Qaddafi and Phyllis Schlafly.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t.”
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: “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: “My father was a writer, so I grew up writing and reading and I was really encouraged by him.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “The basic formula for drama is setup, buildup, payoff – just like a joke. The.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “My three prayers are variations on Help, Thanks, Wow. That’s all I’ll ever need, besides the silence, the pain, and the pause sufficient for me to stop, close my eyes, and turn inward.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “The physical body is acknowledged as dust, the personal drama as delusion. It is as if the world we perceive through our senses, that whole gorgeous and terrible pageant, were the breath-thin surface of a bubble, and everything else, inside and outside, is pure radiance. Both suffering and joy come then like a brief reflection, and death like a pin.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Your experiences will be yours alone. But truth and best friendship will rarely if ever disappoint you.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Periods in the wilderness or desert were not lost time. You might find life, wildflowers, fossils, sources of water. 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 is the light or electricity or juice or breeze that takes you from that isolated place and puts you with others who are as startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you are to be there.”
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: “If you’re lucky you find your way into a spiritual community and you start to find the great teachers of all the ages who said the same thing. There’s only love, you’re made of love.”
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: “God has smiled on me, He has set me free.” For us to acknowledge that we have been set free from toxic dependency, from crippling obsession or guilt, that we have been graced with the ability finally to forgive someone, is just plain astonishing.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “A friend of mine says that the first draft is the down draft – you just get it down. The second draft is the up draft – you fix it up. You try to say what you have to say more accurately. And the third draft is the dental draft, where you check every tooth, to see if it’s loose or cramped or decayed, or even, God help us, healthy.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I could become like that dyslexic agnostic in the old joke – the one who lies in bed and tries to figure out if his dog exists.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “What helps is that we are not all crazy and hopeless on the same day.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “When you’re conscious and writing from a place of insight and simplicity and real caring about the truth, you have the ability to throw the lights on for your reader.”
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: “We all know we’re going to die; what’s important is the kind of men and women we are in the face of this.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “You are going to love some of your characters because they are you or some facet of you, and you are going to hate some of your characters for the same reason.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Grace arrived, like the big, loopy stitches with which a grandmotherly stranger might baste your hem temporarily.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “You weren’t born a person of cringe and contraction. You were born as energy, as life, made of the same stuff as stars, blossoms, breezes. You learned contraction to survive, but that was then. You have paid through the nose – paid but good. It is now your turn to reap.”
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: “If your wife locks you out of the house, you don’t have a problem with your door.”
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: “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: “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: “No one is more sentimentalized in America than mothers on Mother’s Day, but no one is more often blamed for the culture’s bad people and behavior.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “These days cry out, as never before, for us to pay attention, so we can move through them and get our joy and pride back.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Now, if you ask me, what’s going on is that we’re all up to here in it, and probably the most important thing is that we not yell at one another.”
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.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “The worst part about celebrating another birthday is the shock that you’re only as well as you are.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Left to my own devices, my first inclination is to mess in other people’s lives. I secretly believe my whole family, and really the whole world, is my responsibility.”
