The Saturday Creativity Quote — Anne Lamott

I reread Lamott’s classic on our recent trip. Expect to see more quotes in the weeks ahead!

“Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul.”

― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

  1. Thank you for this quote! It is so true. This summer, my all-virtual Toastmasters chapter Write On Toastmasters — a specialty club for writers of all types that meets online twice a month (Wed AMs in MT time) — read “Bird by Bird” as a book club. Lamott’s insights are now inspiring our Table Topics questions, keynote speeches (educational focus about writing and writers) and our prepared speeches for the rest of this year. Highly recommended for all writers — looking forward to more quotes that stand out to you, Leslie!

    • Barbara, what a fantastic way to use the book! You know Lamott will be speaking in Kalispell in Jan, don’t you? Part of the arts and lectures series at the new Wacholz Performing Arts Center at FVCC.
