'It's funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some inner toolbox, full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty old tools - friendships, prayer, conscience, honesty - and said, Do your best with these, they will have to do. And mostly, against all odds, they're enough.'
Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies, p.103.
