Taste It, Enjoy It — Find Out

quotes by Anne Lamott

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor.”

“Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued. Whether you’re going to spend it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over people and circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it and find out the truth about who you are.”

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.”

“Everyone is flailing through this life without an owner’s manual, with whatever modicum of grace and good humor we can manage.”

“I am going to notice the lights of the earth, the sun and the moon and the stars, the lights of our candles as we march, the lights with which spring teases us, the light that is already present.”

“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.”

“Pay attention to the beauty surrounding you.”
