Tools for life

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