Quotes by Callie Bates  (?)

“Unhappiness in one place doesn't breed happiness elsewhere. It just breeds more unhappiness.”
Callie Bates, The Waking Land

“This is why magic is dangerous. It lures you in. It makes you curious.”
Callie Bates, The Waking Land

“No. I am his Ollam.” His poet. The Chief Poet of Caeris. That’s what Hugh is: the keeper of legends and singer of songs.”
Callie Bates, The Waking Land

“So whenever that brittle voice of dissatisfaction emerges within me, I can say "Ah, my ego! There you are, old friend!" It's the same thing when I'm being criticized and I notice myself reaching with outrage, heartache, or defensiveness. It's just my ego, flaring up and testing its power. In such circumstances, I have learned to watch my heated emotions carefully, but I try not to take them too seriously, because I know that it's merely my ego that has been wounded--never my soul It is merely my ego that wants revenge, or to win the biggest prize. It is merely my ego that wants to start a Twitter war against a hater, or to sulk at an insult or to quit in righteous indignation because I didn't get the outcome I wanted.

"At such times, I can always steady my life one more by returning to my soul. I ask it, "And what is it that you want, dear one?"

"The answer is always the same: "More wonder, please."

"As long as I'm still moving in that direction---toward wonder--then I know I will always be fine in my soul, which is where it counts. And since creativity is still the most effective way for me to access wonder, I choose it.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

“Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart. The rest of it will take care of itself.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
