QOTD: Anaïs Nin


  
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. 

I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. 

Reality doesn’t impress me. 

I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. 

No more walls.
— Anaïs Nin
French-born novelist, passionate eroticist and short story writer, who gained international fame with her journals. Spanning the years from 1931 to 1974, they give an account of one woman’s voyage of self-discovery. “It’s all right for a woman to be, above all, human. I am a woman first of all.” (from The Diary of Anaïs Nin, vol. I, 1966) 
Anaïs Nin was largely ignored until the 1960s. Today she is regarded as one of the leading women writers of the 20th-century and a source of inspiration for women challenging conventionally defined gender roles.
