Virginia Woolf
“How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

“One thing I know for sure about raising children is that every single day a kid needs discipline.... But also every single day a kid needs a break.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“And as it turns out, if one person is praying for you, buckle up. Things can happen.”
Anne Lamott, Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers

John Seymour
“I'm only a housewife, I'm afraid." How often do we hear this shocking admission. I'm afraid when I hear it I feel very angry indeed.

When a woman says she is a housewife she should say it with the utmost pride, for there is nothing higher on this planet to which she could aspire.”
John Seymour, Forgotten Household Crafts

Anne Lamott
“Here are the two best prayers I know: 'Help me, help me, help me' and 'Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Anne Lamott
