„Neomlouvej se za pláč. Bez téhle emoce jsme jen roboti.“

„"Pořídit si dítě je jako pořídit si tetování na obličej. Musíš si být opravdu jistá, že ho chceš, než se k tomu rozhodneš."
Jíst, meditovat, milovat“

„Je lepší žít nedokonale vlastní osud než žít dokonale napodobeninu osudu někoho jiného.“

„People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

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.

A soul mates 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...“
Eat, Pray, Love

„This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„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.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„I’m here. I love you. I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long, I will stay with you. If you need the medication again, go ahead and take it—I will love you through that, as well. If you don’t need the medication, I will love you, too. There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„You’re wishin’ too much, baby. You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone oughtta be.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. 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.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„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.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„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.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.“ Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage

„To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced
Eat, pray, love: one woman's search for everything

„Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.“ Eat Pray Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

„The Bhagavad Gita--that ancient Indian Yogic text--says that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.“ Eat, Pray, Love

„Someday you're gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You'll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing...“
