On Being Brave

“If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting - which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments - and set out on a truth-seeking journey - either externally or internally - and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared – most of all – to face, and forgive, some very difficult realities about yourself….then truth will not be withheld from you. Or so I’ve come to believe.”

- Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love.
