Anyone who has ever read one of Anne Lamott’s New York Times bestsellers or prolific essays knows how much fun it is to find out what makes this author tick. Her thoughts on love are just as quirky and endearing as one would imagine.

Here are six of Lamott’s memorable statements on love:

1. “Yet union with a partner — someone with whom to wake, whom you love, and talk with on and off all day, and sit with at dinner, and watch TV and movies, read together in bed, do hard tasks together, and to be loved by. That sounds really lovely.” (Source: Salon)

2. “All grandparents that I know are just pathetic, including me. You just fall so helplessly in love, and yet you really have no rights, and no one is interested in your opinion on how best to raise this precious child.” (Source: Knoxville News)

3. “I love to make people laugh. I love to get people to slow down and pay attention to the moments that are the mosaics of our lives.”

4. “’Figuring it out’ is not one of Jesus’ slogans. We find the truth of that by doing generous things, by being generous, loving people, and by keeping our senses of humor and sticking together.” (Source: Faith and Leadership)

5. “Some days go better than others, and the bad days are awful. And it’s hard to think of yourself as anyone God could love no matter how low God’s standards are. So people tell me it’s a relief to know that someone they admire is like that a lot.” (Source: PBS)

6. “I just try to love and serve everyone, and bring everyone water, and lend an ear; that's what Jesus said to do.”
