Elizabeth Gilbert

The only trick is that you’ve got to identify the best, worthiest thing that you love most and then build your house right on top of it and don’t budge from it.  And if you should someday, somehow, get vaulted out of your home by either great failure or great success then your job is to fight your way back to that home, the only way that it has ever been done: by putting your head down and performing with diligence and devotion and respect and reverence whatever the task is that love is calling forth from you next.
