On Love and Caring // Anne Lamott

On Love and Caring // Anne Lamott

“Mercy, grace, forgiveness, and compassion are synonyms, and the approaches we might consider taking when facing a great big mess, especially the great big mess of ourselves — our arrogance, greed, poverty, disease, prejudice. It includes everything out there that just makes us want to turn away, the idea of accepting life as it presents itself and doing good anyway, the belief that love and caring are marbled even into the worst life has to offer.”

— Anne Lamott (“Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy”)
