Best book for mystics: Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son’s First Year by Anne Lamott

Best book for mystics quote:

My friend Bonnie’s kids went to a kindergarten with a sign over the front door that said, ‘Start out slow, and taper off.’ It’s so easy and natural to race around too much, letting days pass in a whirl of being busy and mildly irritated, getting fixed on solutions to things that turn out to have been just farts in the windstorm.”

Best book for mystics quote:

Matisse actually said the most useful thing I’ve ever heard about praying: ‘I don’t know whether I believe in God or not. I think, really, I’m some sort of Buddhist. But the essential thing is to put oneself in a frame of mind which is close to that of prayer.'”
