Elizabeth Gilbert Quotes

I hope you find these Elizabeth Gilbert Quotes inspiring and motivational.

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.
It's like asking somebody to swallow the sun.
- Elizabeth Gilbert

But, ancient Greece and ancient Rome -
people did not happen to believe that creativity came
from human beings back then,
OK? People believed that creativity was this divine
attendant spirit that came to human beings from some
distant and unknowable source,
for distant and unknowable reasons.
- Elizabeth Gilbert

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

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.
Oh, so Jesus, what a thought!

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


 

Which is - you know, like check it out,
I'm pretty young, I'm only about 40 years old.
I still have maybe another four decades of work left in me.
And it's exceedingly likely that anything I write from
this point forward is going to be judged by the world
as the work that came after the freakish success of my last book,
right?
- Elizabeth Gilbert

You know, even I have had work or ideas come through
me from a source that I honestly cannot identify.
And what is that thing? And how are we to relate to
it in a way that will not make us lose our minds,
but, in fact, might actually keep us sane?
- Elizabeth Gilbert

If you don't know where you're going,
any road will take you there.
