“Who was it who said that forgiveness is giving up all hope of having had a different past?”
Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith

Anna Quindlen
“The biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three on them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.”
Anna Quindlen, Loud and Clear

“Here is one of the worst things about having someone you love die: It happens again every single morning.”

“Sometimes grace works like water wings when you feel you are sinking.”

“You can either practice being right or practice being kind.”
