Anaïs Nin Quote: “We are cruel when someone refuses to play the role in which we have cast him. We judge a person only according to his relationship towards us.”

Anaïs Nin Quote: “Travel is seeking the lost paradise. It is the supreme illusion of love.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I reserve the right to love many different people at once, and to change my prince often.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “If a person continues to see only giants, it means he is still seeing the world through the eyes of a child. I have a feeling that man’s fear of woman comes from having first seen her as the mother, creator of men.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Adolescence is like cactus.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Beware of allowing a tactless word, a rebuttal, a rejection to obliterate the whole sky.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “What everyone forgets is that passion is not merely a heightened sensual fusion but a way of life which produces, as in the mystics, an ecstatic awareness of the whole of life.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I had a feeling that Pandora’s box contained the mysteries of woman’s sensuality, so different from a man’s and for which man’s language was so inadequate. The language of sex had yet to be invented. The language of the senses was yet to be explored.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “It’s all right for a woman to be, above all, human. I am a woman first of all.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Luxury is not a necessity to me, but beautiful and good things are.”

Anaïs Nin Quote: “I walk ahead of myself in perpetual expectancy of miracles.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I had been struck by the analogy between neurosis and romanticism. Romanticism was truly a parallel to neurosis. It demanded of reality an illusory world, love, an absolute which it could never obtain, and thus destroyed itself by the dream.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I like extravagance. Letters which give the postman a stiff back to carry, books which overflow from their covers, sexuality which bursts the thermometers.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “If what Proust says is true, that happiness is the absence of fever, then I will never know happiness. For I am possessed by a fever for knowledge, experience, and creation.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I often see how you sob over what you destroy, how you want to stop and just worship; and you do stop, and then a moment later you are at it again with a knife, like a surgeon.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “He does not need opium. He has the gift of reverie.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I don’t hear your words: your voice reverberates against my body like another kind of caress, another kind of penetration. I have no power over your voice. It comes straight from you into me. I could stuff my ears and it would find its way into my blood and make it rise.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I have a prejudice against people with money. I have known so many, and none have escaped the corruption of power. In this I am a purist. I love people motivated by love and not by power. If you have money and power, and are motivated by love, you give it all away.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “There is a fissure in my vision and madness will always rush through.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Is devotion to others a cover for the hungers and the needs of the self, of which one is ashamed? I was always ashamed to take. So I gave. It was not virtue. It was a disguise.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The enemy of a love is never outside, it’s not a man or a woman, it’s what we lack in ourselves.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Societies in decline have no use for visionaries.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “If I love you it means we share the same fantasies, the same madnesses.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Love men and women not for their strength but their softness, not for their fullness but their hunger, not for their plenty but their need.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Coming near him like a ballet dancer she took a leap towards him, and he, frightened by her vehemence, and fearing that she would crash against him, instinctively became absolutely rigid, and she felt herself embracing a statue.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The final lesson a writer learns is that everything can nourish the writer. The dictionary, a new word, a voyage, an encounter, a talk on the street, a book, a phrase learned.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The artist is the only one who knows that the world is a subjective creation, that there is a choice to be made, a selection of elements.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “For too many centuries women have been being muses to artists. I wanted to be the muse, I wanted to be the wife of the artist, but I was really trying to avoid the final issue – that I had to do the job myself.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “All of my creation is an effort to weave a web of connection with the world: I am always weaving it because it was once broken.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Warmth, perfume, rugs, soft lights, books. They do not appease me. I am aware of time passing, of all the world contains that I have not seen, of all the interesting people I have not met.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The one who travels like a lover searching for a new passion is suddenly blessed with new eyes, new ears, new senses.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Memory is a great betrayer.”

Anaïs Nin Quote: “If you are terribly truthful, the ground will always move from under you, and you will have to shift with the constantly shifting truth.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The body is an instrument which only gives off music when it is used as a body.”
