Big Magic Favourite Quotes

Hi everyone I hope you are all having an amazing day and are staying safe. Today I am here with some of my favourite quotes from Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert.

“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 universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

“What do you love doing so much that the words failure and success essentially become irrelevant?”

“Own your disappointment, acknowledge it for what it is, and move on.”

“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.”

“creative entitlement simply means believing that you are allowed to be here, and that—merely by being here—you are allowed to have a voice and a vision of your own.”

“I think perfectionism is just fear in fancy shoes and a mink coat, pretending to be elegant when actually it’s just terrified. Because underneath that shiny veneer, perfectionism is nothing more that a deep existential angst the says, again and again, ‘I am not good enough and I will never be good enough.”
