We all walk this earth feeling we are frauds - The Quotable David Carr -

David Carr was a great journalist and, hardest of all, an honest memoirist.  He was addicted to crack cocaine, nicotine, endangered his tiny twin daughters and yet managed to redeem himself.  But he did not escape the damage he had done to his body.  He collapsed in the Times newsroom - dead at 58.  He knew as Benedictine Brother David Steindel Rast said that "gratefulness is the heart of prayer".

The Quotable David Carr -
‘We All Walk This Earth Feeling We Are Frauds’

From his book, The Night of the Gun:

“I now inhabit a life I don’t deserve, but we all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful and hope the caper doesn’t end soon.”
