The Best Eat Pray Love Quotes:

 

  • “You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 1- Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “There’s a wonderful old Italian joke about a poor man who goes to church every day and prays before the statue of a great saint, begging, “Dear saint-please, please, please…give me the grace to win the lottery.” This lament goes on for months. Finally the exasperated staue comes to life, looks down at the begging man and says in weary disgust, “My son-please, please, please…buy a ticket.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “Prayer is a realtionship; half the job is mine. If I want transformation, but can’t even be bothered to articulate what, exactly, I’m ainming for, how will it ever occur? Half the benefit of prayer is in the asking itself, in the offering of a clearly posed and well-considered intention. If you don’t have this, all your pleas and desires are boneless, floppy, inert; they swirl at your feet in a cold fog and never lift.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “I look at the Augusteum,and I think that perhaps my life has not actually been so chaotic, after all. It is merely this world that is chaotic, bringing changes to us all that nobody could have anticipated. The Augusteum warns me to not to get attached to any obsolete ideas about who I am, what I represent, whom I belong to, or what function I may once have intended to serve. Yesterday I might have been a glorious monument to somebody, true enough–but tomorrow I could be a fireworks depository. Even in the Eternal City, says the silent Augusteum, one must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 2-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “Destiny, I feel is also a relationship-a play between grace and willful self-effort. Half of it you have no control over, half of it is absolutely in your hands and your actions will show measurable consequences. Man is neither entirely a puppet of the gods, nor is he entirely the captain of his own destiny; he’s a little of both. We gallop through our lives like circus performers balancing on two speeding side-by-side horses-one foot is on the horse called “fate” the other on the horse called “free will”. And the question you have to ask everyday is, Which horse is which? Which horse do I need to stop worrying about because it’s not under my control, and which do I need to steer with concentrated effort?” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “I am not an expert at praying, as you know. But can you please help me? I am in desperate need of help. I don’t know what to do. I need an answer. Please tell me what to do…” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “I am burdened with what the Buddhists call the monkey mind. The thoughts that swing from limb to limb, stopping only to scratch themselves, spit and howl. My mind swings wildly through time, touching on dozens of ideas a minute, unharnessed and undisciplined. You are, after all, what you think. Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert

 

  • “Dolce far niente: the pleasure of doing anything” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 4-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “How many people have I heard claim their children as the greatest accomplishment and comfort of their lives? It’s the thing they can always lean on during a metaphysical crisis, or a moment of doubt about their relevancy – If I have done nothing else in this life, then at least I have raised my children well.But what if, either by choice or by reluctant necessity, you end up not participating in this comforting cycle of family and continuity? What if you step out? Where do you sit at the reunion? How do you mark time’s passage without the fear that you’ve just fritted away your time on earth without being relevant? You’ll need to find another purpose, another measure by which to judge whether or not you have been a successful human being. I love children, but what if I don’t have any? What kind of person does that make me?Virginia Woolf wrote, “Across the broad continent of a woman’s life falls the shadow of a sword.” On one side of that sword, she said, there lies convention and tradition and order, where “all is correct.” But on the other side of that sword, if you’re crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, “all is confusion. Nothing follows a regular course.” Her argument was that the crossing of the shadow of that sword may bring a far more interesting existence to a woman, but you can bet it will also be more perilous.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “The Yogic path is about disentangling the built-in glitches of the human condition, which I’m going to over-simply define here as the heartbreaking inability to sustain contentment. Different schools of thought over the centuries have found different explanation for man’s apparently inherently flawed state. Taoists call it imbalance, Buddism calls it ignorance, Islam blames our misery on rebellion against God, and the Judeo-Christian tradition attributes all our suffering to original sin. Freudians say that unhappiness is the inevitable result of the clash between our natural drives and civilization’s needs. (As my friend Deborah the psychologist explains it: “Desire is the design flaw.”) The Yogis, however, say that human discontentment is a simple case of mistaken identity. We’re miserable because we think that we are mere individuals, alone with our fears and flaws and resentments and mortality. We wrongly believe that our limited little egos constitute our whole entire nature. We have failed to recognize our deeper divine character. We don’t realize that, somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme Self who is eternally at peace. That supreme Self is our true identity, universal and divine. Before you realize this truth, say the Yogis, you will always be in despair, a notion nicely expressed in this exasperated line from the Greek stoic philosopher Epictetus: “You bear God within you, poor wretch, and know it not.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “I am so consumed by wonder at their bravery. These people have left their families and lives behind for a few weeks to go into silent retreat amidst a crowd of perfect strangers in India. Not everybody does this in their lifetime.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 8-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “Still, despite all this, traveling is the great true love of my life. I have always felt, ever since I was sixteen years old and first went to Russia with my saved-up babysitting money, that to travel is worth any cost or sacrifice. I am loyal and constant in my love for travel, as I have not always been loyal and constant in my other loves. I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless, newborn baby–I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s mine. Because it looks exactly like me. It can barf all over me if it wants to–I just don’t care.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 11-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “To my taste, the men in Rome are ridiculously, hurtfully, stupidly beautiful. More beautiful even than Roman women, to be honest. Italian men are beautiful in the same way as French women, which is to say– no detail spared in the quest for perfection. They’re like show poodles. Sometimes they look so good I want to applaud.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 12-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “I filled the song with everything I wished I could teach him about life. I tried to reassure him with every line about how the world is hard and unfair sometimes, but that it’s all OK beacuse he is so loved. He is surrounded by souls who would do anything to help him. And not only that- he has wisdom and patience of his own, buried deep inside his being, which will only reveal themselves over time and will always carry him through any trial. He is a gift from God to all of us.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 13-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “Why are you studying Italian? So that – just in case Italy ever invades Ethiopia again, and is actually successful this time – you can brag about knowing a language that’s spoken in two whole countries?But I loved it. Every word was a singing sparrow, a magic trick, a truffle for me. I would slosh home through the rain after class, draw a hot bath, and lie there in the bubbles reading the Italian dictionary aloud to myself, taking my mind off my divorce pressures and my heartache. The words made me laugh in delight. I started referring to my cell phone as il mio telefonino (“my teensy little telephone”) I became one of those annoying people who always say Ciao! Only I was extra annoying, since I would always explain where the word ciao comes from.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

  • “Dessutom kunde jag inte glömma vad min syster en gång hade sagt till mig medan hon ammade: ”Att skaffa barn är som att skaffa sig en tatuering i ansiktet. Man måste vara bergsäker på att det är så man vill ha det innan man sätter igång.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 14-Fit-HealthyLife

The brothers can be called upon in any critical situation for rescue and assistance. When you die, your four spirit brothers collet your soul and bring you to heaven.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 25-Fit-HealthyLife

But to claim it, you must leave the buy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 36-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 37-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 38-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 44-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “There’s a reason we refer to ‘leaps of faith’ – because the decision to consent to any notion of divinity is a mighty jump from the rational over to the unknowable, and I don’t care how diligently scholars of every religion will try to sit you down with their stacks of books and prove to you through scripture that their faith is indeed rational; it isn’t. 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 our 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, Eat, Pray, Love

  • “You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 47-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “To find the balance you want, this is what you must become. You must keep your feet grounded so firmly on the earth that it’s like you have 4 legs instead of 2. That way, you can stay in the world. But you must stop looking at the world through your head. You must look through your heart, instead. That way, you will know God.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 48-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “My thoughts turn to something I read once, something the Zen Buddhists believe. They say that an oak tree is brought into creation by two forces at the same time. Obviously, there is the acorn from which it all begins, the seed which holds all the promise and potential, which grows into a tree. Everybody can see that. But only a few can recognize that there is anther force operating here as well-the future tree itself, which wants so badly to exist that it pulls the acorn into being, drawing the seedling forth with longing out of the void, guiding the evolution from nothingness to maturity. In this respect, say the Zens, it is the oak tree that creates the very acorn from which it was born.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 49-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “There is a reason they call God a presence – because God is right here, right now. In the present is the only place to find Him, and now is the only time.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 50-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “Imagine that the universe is a great spinning engine. You want to stay near the core of the thing – right in the hub of the wheel – not out at the edges where all the wild whirling takes place, where you can get frayed and crazy. The hub of calmness – that’s your heart. That’s where God lives within you. So stop looking for answers in the world. Just keep coming back to that center and you’ll always find peace.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 51-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “God dwells within you, as you.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 52-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “The karmic philosophy appeals to me on a metaphorical level because even in ones lifetime it’s obvious how often we must repeat our same mistakes, banging our heads against the same ole addictions and compulsions, generating the same old miserable and often catastrophic consequences, until we can finally stop and fix it. This is the supreme lesson of karma (and also of western psychology, by the way) – take care of the problem now, or else you’ll just have to suffer again later when you screw everything up the next time. And that repetition of suffering-that’s hell. Moving out of that endless repetition to a new level of understanding-there’s where you’ll find heaven.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 53-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “Zen masters say you cannot see your reflection in running water, only in still water.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Maybe You Would Love to Read about Best Healthy Eating Quotes 

 

  • “The Yogic sages say that all the pain of a human life is caused by words, as is all the joy. We create words to define our experience and those words bring attendant emotions that jerk us around like dogs on a leash. We get seduced by our own mantras (I’m a failure… I’m lonely… I’m a failure… I’m lonely…) and we become monuments to them. To stop talking for a while, then, is to attempt to strip away the power of words, to stop choking ourselves with words, to liberate ourselves from our suffocating mantras.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 55-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “I wondered, ‘Why have I been chasing happiness my whole life when bliss was here the entire time?” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 56-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “[Saint Anthony] said, in his solitude, he sometimes encountered devils who looked like angels, and other times he found angels who looked like devils. When asked how he could tell the difference, the saint said that you can only tell which is which by the way you feel after the creature has left your company.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Eat Pray Love Quotes 59-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “It’s easy enough to pray when you’re in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainment.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 60-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “So I stood up and did a handstand on my Guru’s roof, to celebrate the notion of liberation. I felt the dusty tiles under my hands. I felt my own strength and balance. I felt the easy night breeze on the palms of my bare feet. This kind of thing — a spontaneous handstand–isn’t something a disembodied cool blue soul can do, but a human being can do it. We have hands; we can stand on them if we want to. That’s our privilege. That’s the joy of a mortal body. And that’s why God needs us. Because God loves to feel things through our hands.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 61-Fit-HealthyLife

 

Quotes about Relationship from Eat, Pray, Love:

 

  • “One thing I do know about intimacy is that there are certain natural laws which govern the sexual experience of two people, and that these laws cannot be budged any more than gravity can be negotiated with. To feel physically comfortable with someone else’s body is not a decision you can make. It has very little to do with how two people think or act or talk or even look. The mysterious magnet is either there, buried somewhere deep behind the sternum, or it is not. When it isn’t there (as I have learned in the past, with heartbreaking clarity) you can no more force it to exist than a surgeon can force a patient’s body to accept a kidney from the wrong donor. My friend Annie says it all comes down to one simple question: “Do you want your belly pressed against this person’s belly forever –or not?” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 40-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “I have a history of making decisions very quickly about men. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 41-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other’s personalities. Who wouldn’t? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that’s not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner’s faults honestly and say, ‘I can work around that. I can make something out of it.’? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it’s always going to pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 42-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “Maybe my life hasn’t been so chaotic. It’s just the world that is and the only real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

  • “There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

But on the other side of that sword, if you’re crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, ‘all is confusion.’ Nothing follows a regular course.

Eat Pray Love Quotes 66-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “I fell asleep holding my notebook pressed against my chest, open to this most recent assurance.

And his buddy loneliness beat it, too.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

Eat Pray Love Quotes 67-Fit-HealthyLife

 

  • “I was full of a hot, powerful sadness and would have loved to burst into the comfort of tears, but tried hard not to, remembering something my Guru once said — that you should never give yourself a chance to fall apart because, when you do, it becomes a tendency and it happens over and over again. You must practice staying strong, instead.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
