2. “Sometimes I can imagine God just shaking his or her head going, ‘Oh Annie, whatever.’ And other times, I just feel, even at my most — when I have been at my most awful, feeling cast out and lost and it’s all hopeless — I feel the love of a mother-father God. I feel loved like a baby would be.” (Source:PBS)

3. "’Plan B’ was written post-9/11 and also toward the end of one whole term of what I consider to be the most dangerous administration in the history of the republic. So it forced me into new ground and new challenges. It really made me consider what it is I hope to accomplish with my work and what it is I can offer, which is a voice of hope and a voice of belief that alchemy is a spiritual truth for us.”

3. “The belief is that enough hope and tenderness will lead to world peace, one mind at a time. All nations will come together in kindness and justice, swords will be beaten into plowshares, spears into pruning hooks. This is a little hard to buy with a world stage occupied by so many madmen, and so much suffering. But setting aside one’s tiny tendency toward cynicism, in the meantime — in Advent — we wait; and hope appears if we truly desire to see it.” (Source: Salon)

4. “I have always believed that the material is inside me. If I'm quiet in that realm and patient and receptive, the material will begin to tug on my shoulder slowly, and little by little I'll start seeing pieces of it, like mosaic chips. A novel is much, much harder, like keeping six plates in the air.” (Source: Star Tribune)

5. “I want to bring people hope and laughter and a ferocious commitment to self-love.”
