Here's a meli melo of the ones I've got so far, currently reading it, I'm soon leaving India for Bali!

"The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That's where you need to go." -- This one actually made me bawl my eyes out, always thought the mind & the heart were engaged in a constant battle...

"You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone oughtta be." -- Gosh, I looove Richard from Texas!!

"Let your intention be freedom from useless suffering." -- The plumber/poet from New Zealand is absolutely right. That scene on the rooftop is beyond touching!

"You are, after all, what you think." -- For any other "monkey mind" out there, I think we've all related with that part!!

"ATTRAVERSIAMO" -- Enough said!

"Even in the Eternal City, says the Augusteum, one must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation." -- Ain't our ability, as human beings, to constantly be able to adapt to change one of out finest qualities?!! :D

"Where did you get the idea you aren't allowed to petition the universe with prayer? You are part of the universe, Liz. You are a constituent - you have every entitlement to participate in the actions of the universe, and to let your feelings be known." -- Amazing! Funny and so true!! Especially looved the Mandela & Bono signatures, now I'd want them to sign my petition too!!

"This was my voice, but perfectly wise, calm and compassionate. This was what my voice would sound life if I'd only ever experienced love and certainty in my life... Go back to bed, Liz" -- and the tear ducks once again..

"When I sit in my silence and look at my mind, it is only questions of longing and control that emerge to agitate me, and this agitation is what keeps me from evolving forward." -- Something to seriously mull over...

"I used to have this appetite for my life. And now it's just gone. I want to go someplace where I can MARVEL at something." -- Beautifully said by Julia

"I'm having a relationship with my pizza." -- Wiser words have never been spoken. I'm have a relationship with my pasta, my coffee, my cupcakes, my chocolate, my fine wine, my cheeeese, my bread... ad infinitum!!

"If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind." -- True, absolutely true!

"If you clear out all that space in your mind that you're using right now to obsess about this guy, you'll have a vacuum there, an open spot - a doorway. And guess what the universe will do with that doorway? It will rush in - God will rush in - and fill you with more love that you ever dreamed." Richard from Texas as per his usual amazing self!

you know i am thinking: should there be a spot for the movie separate from the book? somehow this will get confusing over time?
i will be back with quotes i just need to get my book for our little book club

Gosh, that's true. But melting together the book + movie would guarantee us to get more fans to join & participate. The thing is that if we've only a forum for the book, then we won't get many pics or wallpapers, for one thing. We should do a separate forum for the book though, for EPL book lovers who won't like the film, they'll need that place

Then again, Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen has a single spot for the book + movie adaptation, so does Harry Potter, but Twilight doesn't. But I can safely say that the all-encompassing Twilight Series spot definitively gets much more activity going on than each separate spot does.

Maybe we should only clarify in the title thingy, "One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia. Novel & Movie Adaption."

Oh damn, look under scrap of paper, piles of books... I know that's where usually I find everything!! I've "given", more like "you have to give it to me back in its pristine condition" my copy to a friend for her to read it, after I've gone on & on about its virtues!! Saw the movie last night and I badly wanted to flip through it when I came back but couldn't!!

Look up the quotes on the internet!
