Big Magic – Elizabeth Gilbert

  • I happen to believe we are all walking repositories of buried treasure. I believe this is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings, both for its own amusement and for ours: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.
  • We all know that fear is a desolate boneyard where our dreams go to desiccate in the hot sun.
  • When the time is ripe for certain things, they appear at different places, in the manner of violets coming to light in early spring.
  • Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart. The rest of it will take care of itself.
  • I think it’s a mighty act of human love to remind somebody that they can accomplish things by themselves, and that the world does not automatically owe them any reward, and that they are not as weak and hobbled as they may believe.
