Dan’s Wednesday Quote of the Week #34 – Being a Good Sport

From Dusk Night Dawn, Anne Lamott writes A successful writer in her early seventies, she survived a basically unsurvivable cancer twenty-five years ago. I thought she had a migraine, so I asked her if she was okay. She shook her head and sighed,

“I have made a life and career of being a good sport. And I’m worn out.”

Anne continues, All I could think to do in the moment was to agree. Me too. I am sick and tired of being a good sport and worker bee, chin up and adorably ironic.

They are not alone.

Oh, here’s one more gem from Anne.

Fear is not facts.
