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: “We can change. People say we can’t, but we do when the stakes or the pain is high enough. And when we do, life can change. It offers more of itself when we agree to give up our busyness.”
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: “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: “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: “Kindness toward others and radical kindness to ourselves buy us a shot at a warm and generous heart, which is the greatest prize of all.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “She lived in fear of ifonic endings.”
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: “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: “Thurber was right when he said, “You might as well fall flat on your face as lean over too far backwards.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Love is so much bigger than our ignorance.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I naturally prefer the company of people who hold grudges, as long as they are not held against me.”
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: “I would seriously rather be in a long line at the DMV than eat with people I don’t know.”
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: “The medieval German mystic Meister Eckhart said that if the soul could have known God without the world, God never would have created the world.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “Your experiences will be yours alone. But truth and best friendship will rarely if ever disappoint you.”
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: “There’s freedom in hitting bottom, in seeing that you won’t be able to save or rescue your daughter, her spouse, his parents, or your career, relief in admitting you’ve reached the place of great unknowing. This is where restoration can begin, because when you’re still in the state of trying to fix the unfixable, everything bad is engaged: the chatter of your mind, the tension of your physiology, all the trunks and wheel-ons you carry from the past. It’s exhausting, crazy-making.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “This is a difficult country to look too different in – the United States of Advertising, as Paul Krassner puts it – and if you are too skinny or too tall or dark or weird or short or frizzy or homely or poor or nearsighted, you get crucified. I did. But.”
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: “You can tell if people are following Jesus, because they are fedding the poor, sharing their wealth, and trying to get everyone medical insurance.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “They always threw their arms around and hugged me while crying our Yiddish endearments. Yet none of them believed in God. They believed in social justice, good works, Israel, and Bette Midler. I was nearly thirty before I met a religious Jew.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Forgiveness and mercy mean that, bit by bit, you begin to outshine the resentment.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I don’t have very sophisticated taste in music. I listen to a lot of folk music. I like reggae.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I kept asking God for help, and after a while I realized something – that Josh was not enjoying this either. He was just trying to take care of himself, and I made the radical decision to let him off the hook.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Mothers are supposed to listen and, afterward, to respond with some wisdom and perspective, but these things were not my mother’s strong suit.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Sin is not the adult bookstore on the corner. It is the hard heart, the lack of generosity, and all the isms, racism and sexism and so forth. But is there a crack where a ribbon of light might get in, might sneak past all the roadblocks and piles of stones, mental and emotional and cultural? We.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “Dancing almost always turns out to be a good idea.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “If your wife locks you out of the house, you don’t have a problem with your door.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I am skittish about relationships, as most of the marriages I’ve seen up close have been ruinous for one or both parties.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I sat down in the sand, breathless with shame and failure. God, I thought, some defender of the weak. Some freedom fighter: Joan of Arc in sunscreen.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “The real payoff is the writing itself, that a day when you have gotten your work done is a good day, that total dedication is the point.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “The harm is in the unwanted help or helping them when they need to figure things out for themselves. Help is the sunny side of control.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “I think that is why we stay close to our families, no matter how neurotic the members, how deeply annoying or dull- because when people have seen you at your worst, you don’t have to put on the mask as much.”
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: “I was raised with no religious training or influence. Except the influence was to be a moral and ethical person at the secular level. And to be a peace marcher, an activist for civil rights, peace and justice.”
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: “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: “I have a lot of faith. But I am also afraid a lot, and have no real certainty about anything. I remembered something Father Tom had told me – that the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns.”
