It's 3 a.m. and the bathroom floor has Elizabeth Gilbert sobbing. She's in her thirties, she's got a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. Later, a divorce and a turbulent love affair, she emerges battered and confused and realizes that it's time to go on her ... own journey in search of three things she's missed: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she's traveling to Rome where she learns Italian from beautiful, brown-eyed identical twins and earns twenty-five pounds; an ashram in India where she finds that enlightenment involves getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor; and Bali, where an indeterminate-age toothless medicine man offers her a new path to peace: just sit still and smile. And happiness begins to slowly creep up on her.

Quotes from Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything

In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.

Some days are meant to be counted, others are meant to be weighed.

And what will I be able to do tomorrow that I cannot yet do today?

To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced
life.

We search for happiness everywhere, but we are like Tolstoy's fabled beggar who spent his life sitting on a pot of gold, under him the whole time. Your treasure--your perfection--is within you already. 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.

Reviews of Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything

An unsuccessful attempt at a memoir from novelist and journalist Gilbert...

Lacking a ballast of gravitas or grit, the book lists into the realm of magical thinking: nothing Gilbert touches seems to turn out wrong; not a single wish goes unfulfilled.

This is a warm, funny, entertaining book that will make you want to eat, pray, love and write a bestseller, just like Gilbert.

I could not accept nor understand her spiritual practice. It made no sense to me...This is not a compelling book...
