Elizabeth Gilbert Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert

I hope you like these Elizabeth Gilbert quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

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

You know, even I have had work or ideas come through
me from a source that I honestly cannot identify.

it in a way that will not make us lose our minds,
but, in fact, might actually keep us sane?
- Elizabeth Gilbert

But, ancient Greece and ancient Rome -
people did not happen to believe that creativity came
from human beings back then,

attendant spirit that came to human beings from some
distant and unknowable source,
for distant and unknowable reasons.
- Elizabeth Gilbert

You know, I think that allowing somebody,
one mere person to believe that he or she is like,
the vessel you know, like the font and the essence
and the source of all divine,
creative, unknowable, eternal mystery is just a smidge
too much responsibility to put on one fragile,
human psyche.

as the work that came after the freakish success of my last book,
right?
- Elizabeth Gilbert

I should just put it bluntly, because we're all sort of friends here now -
it's exceedingly likely that my greatest success is behind me.

a person to start drinking gin at nine o'clock in the morning,
and I don't want to go there.

be forgiving of everyone and of every act
we believe has hurt us.

We get to CHOOSE our relationship with life.
