Eat Pray Love Movie Quotes

Posted by on Dec 26, 2010 in Life, Movies & TV | 16 comments

Eat Pray Love is an inspirational drama based on a best seller book by Elizabeth Gilbert.  It is all about the author‘s search for finding her own self again and documented it on this lovely book.  I haven’t read the book but I just watched the movie.   Julia Roberts plays her character in the movie.  Many people say that reading the novel is better (it always is) but I can still appreciate the story still sipping in throughout the movie.  It is very inspiring indeed.  I am touched by a lot of lines said in the film and here I compiled Eat Pray Love Quotes so that I can keep reading it when I need some “guidance” and so that I can share it to you guys Smile

Top Quotes from Eat Pray Love Book

As smoking is to the lungs, so is resentment to the soul, even one puff is bad for you.

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.

“I met an old lady once, almost a hundred years old, and she told me, ‘There are only two questions that human beings have ever fought over, all through Historoy.  How much do you love me? and Who’s in charge?’ ”

Tis’ better to live your own life imperfectly than to imitate someone else’s perfectly.

To lose balance sometimes for love, is part of living a balanced life

“Learning how to discipline your speech is a way of preventing your energies from spilling out of you through the rupture of your mouth, exhausting you and filling the world with words, words, words instead of serenity, peace and bliss.”

“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.”

In desperate love, we always invent the characters of our partners, demanding they be what we need of them, and then feeling devastated when they refuse to perform the role we created in the first place.”

We’re miserable because we think that we are mere individuals, alone with our fears and flaws and resentment and mortality.”

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. “

And here are Eat Pray Love Movie Quotes

“If you could clear you all that space in your mind, you would have a doorway. And you know what the universe would do? Rush in.”

Liz: “I am so sick of people telling me I need a man.”
Felipe (Javier Bardem): “You don’t need a man, you need a champion.”

“We call it “dolce far niente”, the sweetness of doing nothing.”

“A friend took me to the most amazing place the other day. It’s called the Augusteum. Octavian Augustus built it to house his remains. When the barbarians came they trashed it a long with everything else. The great Augustus, Rome’s first true great emperor. How could he have imagined that Rome, the whole world as far as he was concerned, would be in ruins. It’s one of the quietest, loneliest places in Rome. The city has grown up around it over the centuries. It feels like a precious wound, a heartbreak you won’t let go of because it hurts too good. We all want things to stay the same. Settle for living in misery because we’re afraid of change, of things crumbling to ruins. Then I looked at around to this place, at the chaos it has endured – the way it has been adapted, burned, pillaged and found a way to build itself back up again. And I was reassured, maybe my life hasn’t been so chaotic, it’s just the world that is, and the real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.”

Everyone can relate to this movie.  We get lost once in a while and we pause and think that our life doesn’t have any meaning at all.  This movie may not be perfect (for me) so you might want to read the book instead.  But still, the movie is very inspiring.

  1. The Ruin dialogue part in the movie made me rethink things while at the movie house. The confrontation scene in India made me cry

  2. :’-( diba… and seeing the ex-husband cry sa elevator too made me teary-eyed. parang, never ko na experience yon may umiyak for me lol

  3. Ahh. Nice quotes. I usually read a book first before watching its movie. Pero on this one, I watched the movie first pero di ko natapos. Haha. I guess I’ll just have to read the book. I have always proven that movies are far too different from what’s in the book.:)

  4. The book is definitely better. Im halfway reading it.

    “Attraversiamo!”

  5. haha, thanks for dropping by @Jinoe :) and thanks for confirming that the book is better… I will download it on my kindle reader. or buy the book nalang thanks!

  6. yeah, I really want to compile it in case I need words of inspiration :)

  7. Macho or no macho I will give my 2 cents worth to the movie…haha!

    Though a “girly” movie, the movie will only be appreciated by some. Some said it’s dragging and pointless. But to me dude, it’s about getting lost to find yourself. Make sense? Few have only crossed those paths but I do hope everybody will experience it the soonest. :-)

    Cheers and happy holidays Hanns!

  8. naman chong.. nakaka miss naman ang mga words of wizdom mo. nakaka miss rin yong whole crew. kahit 6 days lang tayo lahat magkasama parang forever na tayo magkakilala XD

    machong macho parin! thanks for dropping by dude :)

  9. I totally agree with this quote “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.”

    Relationships are pointless if there is no growth. And by growth it means with this soul mate, you continue to become a better person each and every day. With him/her, you get to reflect on the world and especially yourself. With reflection, you realize things, you learn, and become a better person.

    Nakaka senti naman haha!

  10. naks, thanks for contributing insights to this posts :)

  11. You have a Kindle? How is it? Mas ok ba compared to reading on an ipad, maybe?

  12. Kindle reader lang (for iPad) .. but they say Kindle is really better like walang glare and stuff. but yeah, it’s main purpose is to be a reader – nothing else :)

  13. the book is way better than the movie. my copy is bleeding with orange highlights already and i’m just halfway through it. love her lots. elizabethgilbert.com. haha. She’s the only author I can self-confess to stalking online regularly. hahaha.

  14. thank you for sharing

  15. Hey Helen, I’m reading it nga rin now. It’s nice to read to get inspired and to understand some adult things in life

  16. I usually read a book first before watching its movie. Pero on this one, I watched the movie first pero di ko natapos. Haha. I guess I’ll just have to read the book. I have always proven that movies are far too different from what’s in the book.:)
