Anne Lamott Quotes on Success: 6 Memorable Statements From Christian Writer

By    |   Tuesday, 19 May 2015 07:21 PM

Anne Lamott is one of the most successful authors in America. Four of her books are New York Times best sellers, and she is one of the most highly sought writers for speaking engagements.

Lamott’s perspective on success isn’t wrapped up in book sales and popularity, her unique views on success are likely due to her strong relationship with Jesus Christ. Here are six memorable quotes on success by the legendary and outspoken left-wing Christian writer and political activist:

SPECIAL: Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Amazing Ways

1. "I feel incredibly successful. I make a living as a writer and am able to help support a big family, my church, my bleeding-heart causes." (Source: Brainy Quote)

2. "I was raised by my parents to believe that you had a moral obligation to try and help save the world." (Source: Quotes Log)

3. "I quit my last real job, as a writer at a magazine, when I was 21. That was the moment when I lost my place of prestige on the fast track, and slowly, millimeter by millimeter, I started to get found, to discover who I had been born to be, instead of the impossibly small package, all tied up tightly in myself, that I had agreed to be."

4. "I am pretty used to criticism. However, I sell millions of books, and some people love my fiction, and some people hate it, and some people love my nonfiction, and others think it is total narcissistic ranting. So I just have to listen to the words that form inside me, and get to know the characters who are inside me, and I try to get that down on paper and turn it into the most true, luminous, hopeful narrative I can." (Source: World Magazine)

5. "Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued. Whether you're going to spend it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over people and circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it and find out the truth about who you are." (Source: Brainy Quote)

6. "If we stay where we are, where we're stuck, where we're comfortable and safe, we die there ... When nothing new can get in, that's death." (Source: Good Reads, "Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers")
