Anne Lamott Quote: “I know some very great writers, writers you love who write beautifully and have made a great deal of money, and not one of them sits down routinely feeling wildly enthusiastic and confident.

Anne Lamott Quote: “You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t.”
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 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: “Write as if your parents are dead.”
Anne Lamott Quote: “The basic formula for drama is setup, buildup, payoff – just like a joke. The.”

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: “There is flow everywhere in nature – glaciers are just rivers that are moving really, really slowly – so how could there not be flow in each of.”

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.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “When you’re kind to people, and you pay attention, you make a field of comfort around them, and you get it back – the Golden Rule meets the Law of Karma meets Murphy’s Law.”
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.”

When.”

Anne Lamott Quote: “And what a wonderful relief every so often to know who the enemy is – because in the garden, the enemy is everything: the aphids, the weather, time.
