What would it be like if we all actually did this? For me it would be something like trying to draw something and then showing the result to the world as if it were a great work of art. Now who would that be good for?

My cousin actually posted a pretty good inspirational quote today: "The things we take for granted someone else is praying for." (Which I might have rephrased a bit before putting it on a dark background with a candle and two hands holding the candle, but I like the sentiment.)

(She also posted another culinary creation that I would share if I didn't think it'd be mean.)

What the fuck is Elizabeth Gilbert doing using "'Tis"?

That of course assumes that the quote is genuine, not a safe assumption at all in this context. I would guess that about 40% of these are bogus.

The internet tells me that Elizabeth Gilbert did say this in Eat Pray Love: “The Bhagavad Gita--that ancient Indian Yogic text--says that it is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.”

No "'Tis". And I doubt that the Bhagavad Gita does say that, although it does talk about playing your assigned role.
