poetic truth

A Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert on literal anatomy, poetic anatomy, literal truth, poetic truth, energy, memory, faith bones, teeth, and flesh

Just as there exists in writing a literal truth and a poetic truth, there also exists in a human being a literal anatomy and a poetic anatomy.  One, you can see; one, you cannot. One is made of bones and teeth and flesh; the other is made of energy and memory and faith.  But they are both equally true.
