Elizabeth Gilbert Talks about Success, Inspiration, and Genius

“… its exceedingly likely that anything I write from this point forward is going to be judged by the world as the work that came after the freakish success of my last book, right. I should just put it bluntly, cuz we are all sorta friends here now. Its exceedingly likely that my greatest success is behind me. Jesus, what a thought…”

“I’m a mule… even I in my muleishness, even I have brushed up against that thing. And I imagine a lot of you have too. Even I have had work or ideas come through me from a source that I can’t honestly identify. And what is that thing? And how are we to relate to it in a way that will not make us lose our minds, but in fact, might actually keep us sane.”
