Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I don’t want to be afraid of bright colors, or new sounds, or big love, or risky decisions, or strange experiences, or weird endeavors, or sudden changes, or even failure.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “In Venice in the Middle Ages there was once a profession for a man called a codega – a fellow you hired to walk in front of you at night with a lit lantern, showing you the way, scaring off thieves and demons, bringing you confidence and protection through the dark streets.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “What do I believe that I deserve in this life?”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Not everyone is meant to charge through the world, carrying a spear.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “We all seem to get this idea that, in order to be sacred, we have to make some massive, drastic change of character, that we have to renounce our individuality. To know God, you only need to renounce one thing – your sense of division from God.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “You might get nothing out of it at all except a beautiful, long life where all you did was follow your gorgeous curiosity. And that should be enough too.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I never wanted to be the person that waited for a stranger to come to town – I wanted to be the stranger!”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “What does any of that have to do with the quiet glory of merely making things, and then sharing those things with an open heart and no expectations?”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I happen to believe we are all walking repositories of buried treasure.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Everybody imitates before they can innovate.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “For if there is one thing I have learned over the years about men, it is that feelings of powerlessness do not usually bring forth their finest qualities.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “If your goal in life is to become fearless, then I believe you’re already on the wrong path, because the only truly fearless people I’ve ever met were straight-up sociopaths and a few exceptionally reckless three-year-olds – and those aren’t good role models for anyone. The truth is, you need your fear, for obvious reasons of basic survival. Evolution did well to install a fear reflex within you, because if you didn’t have any fear, you would lead a short, crazy, stupid life.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “It ain’t what they call you; it’s what you answer to.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I know this simple fact to be true, for I myself have abandoned people who did not want me to go, and I myself have been abandoned by those whom I begged to stay.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “After all, he says, “beauty attracts beauty.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “If faith were rational, it wouldn’t be – by definition – faith. Faith is belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark. If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of souls, our belief would not be a leap of faith and it would not be a courageous act of humanity; it would just be... a prudent insurance policy.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Felipe and I, as we discover to our delight, are a perfectly matched, genetically engineered belly-to-belly success story.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Genetic randomness had already determined how much talent I’d been allotted, and destiny’s randomness would account for my share of luck. The only piece I had any control over was my discipline. Recognizing that, it seemed like the best plan would be to work my ass off. That was the only card I had to play, so I played it hard.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Having money saved is not quite the same thing as having a plan, mind you – but it does start to make a girl feel as though a plan could someday be possible.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Nothing is so essential as dignity. Time will reveal who has it and wi has it not.” -Beatrix Whittaker.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Nothing will uproot your life more violently than true love – at least as far as I’ve always witnessed.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Lastly, remember what W. C. Fields had to say on this point: “It ain’t what they call you; it’s what you answer to.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Yoga is the effort to experience one’s divinity personally and then to hold on to that experience forever.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “We’re miserable because we think that we are mere individuals, alone with our fears and flaws and resentment and mortality.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I guess what I want to learn is how to live in this world and enjoy its delights but also devote myself to God.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Those girls are on the road to trouble,” I heard an older woman say about us one night, as we were staggering down the street drunk – and that woman was absolutely right. What she didn’t understand, though, is that trouble is what we wanted.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Well, child, you may do whatever you like with your suffering,” Hanneke said mildly. “It belongs to you. But I shall tell you what I do with mine. I grasp it by the small hairs, I cast it to the ground, and I grind it under the heel of my boot. I suggest you learn to do the same.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “And what will I be able to do tomorrow that I cannot yet do today?”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I have watched so many other people murder their creativity by demanding that their art pay the bills.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Please tell me I’m not the only one who finds it endearing and encouraging that a legendary Roman philosopher had to reassure himself that it’s okay not to be Plato.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “What a large number of factors constitute a single human being! How very many layers we operate on, and how very many influences we receive from our minds, our bodies, our histories, our families, our cities, our souls and our lunches!”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Venice is beautiful, but like a Bergman movie is beautiful; you can admire it, but you don’t really want to live in it.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “But we are not what the other one needs, still he is certain that I will find great love in my life someday. He is sure of it. After all, he says, beauty attracts beauty.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “My life acccomplishments? Sanity, and you.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “If you show up for your work day after day after day, you just might get lucky enough some random morning to burst right into bloom.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Trust me, if you want to complain, you’ll always find plenty to complain about, even when fortune appears to be shining her favor upon you.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Everything good I’ve ever gotten in life, I only got because I gave something else up.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “I wanted to be all Gandhi about this. I wanted to be all Nelson Mandela about this. Not realizing at the time that both Gandhi and Mandela were lawyers.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “As the psychologist Carol Gilligan has written, “Women’s sense of integrity seems to be entwined with an ethic of care, so that to see themselves as women is to see themselves in a relationship of connection.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “What Richard is talking about is instead admitting to the existence of negative thoughts, understanding where they came from and why they arrived, and then – with great forgiveness and fortitude – dismissing them.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “It’s not enough for me to just hear about something or read about something, I wanna know it in my bones.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Sometimes beauty needs a bit of ignoring, to properly come into being.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “But when it comes to writing the thing that I’ve sort of been thinking about lately, is why? You know, is it rational? Is it logical that anybody should be expected to be afraid of the work that they feel they were put on this Earth to do.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Never has it felt more important for me to tell stories of joy and abandon, passion and recklessness. Life is short and difficult, people. We must take our pleasures where we can find them. Let us not become so cautious that we forget to live.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “We can change our wives,” he said. “We can change our jobs, our nationalities and even our religions, but we can never change our team.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Rest assured, dear friend, that many noteworthy and great sciences and arts have been discovered through the understanding and subtlety of women, both in cognitive speculation, demonstrated in writing, and in the arts, manifested in manual works of labor. I will give you plenty of examples. Christine de Pizan, The Book of the City of Ladies 1405.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “Then my mercy swelled, and for just a moment I felt mercy for everyone who has ever gotten involved in an impossibly messy story. All those predicaments that we humans find ourselves in – predicaments that we never see coming, do not know how to handle, and then cannot fix.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “One of these poems I wrote after having been here only a month. The other, I wrote this morning. In the space between the two poems, I have found acres of grace.”
Elizabeth Gilbert Quote: “What you produce is not necessarily always sacred, I realized, just because you think it’s sacred. What is sacred is the time that you spend working on the project, and what that time does to expand your imagination, and what that expanded imagination does to transform your life.”
