엘리자베스 길버트는 우리들 모두가 예술가와 소위 "천재(genius):라는 사람들에게 불가능한 기대를 한다고 말하며, 극소수의 사람을 "지니어스"라 생각하기 보다는 우리 모두가 "지니어스"라는 것을 가질 수 있다고 생각하는 것이 어떠냐는 혁신적인 아이디어를 말해 줍니다. 이것은 유머러스하고 개인적인 동시에 의외로 감동적인 강연입니다.

Speaker quote
Elizabeth Gilbert says:
Creators should fight against the pull of Romanticism in their work and reject the notion that the artistic life must be one of suffering and torment. I encourage makers to recognize that when you pull your ego out of the game, your work can become a series of joyful collaborations (between artist and mystery, between artist and peers, between artist and audience). The important thing is to take responsibility for continuing to show up for your side of the bargain.
