I was a writer before 'Eat, Pray, Love,' and I'll be a writer after it's over. It's what I want to do for the rest of my life.
If life gives you lemons, don't settle for simply making lemonade - make a glorious scene at a lemonade stand.
I've come to realize that the contemporary creative culture is not generating the best possible outcome.
I am far more of a loner than people would imagine. But I am the most gregarious and socially interactive loner you ever met. The thing is, I am fascinated by people's stories and I'm very talkative and can't ever say no to anything or anyone, so I tend to over-socialize, to give away too much of my time to the many people I adore.
