Anaïs Nin Quote: “In creation alone there is the possibility of perfection.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “One handles truths like dynamite.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The dangerous time when mechanical voices, radios, telephones, take the place of human intimacies, and the concept of being in touch with millions brings a greater and greater poverty in intimacy and human vision.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The two men who have done the greatest harm to the world are Christ and Columbus. Christ taught us guilt and sacrifice, to live only in the other world, and Columbus discovered America and materialism.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The poet is one who is able to keep the fresh vision of the child alive.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I want to fall in love in such a way that the mere sight of a man, even a block away from me, will shake and pierce me, will weaken me, and make me tremble and soften and melt.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Strange, isn’t it, that no chemical will give a human being the iridescence that illusions have given them? Give me your hat.”

Anaïs Nin Quote: “Women always think that when they have my shoes, my dress, my hairdresser, my makeup, it will all work the same way. They do not conceive of the witchcraft that is needed. They do not know that I am not beautiful but that I only appear to be at certain moments.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I prefer empty cages, Sabina, until I find a unique bird I once saw in my dreams.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I cheat him, I deceive him, yet the world does not sink in sulphur-colored mists. Madness conquers. I can no longer put my mosaics together. I just cry and laugh.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I see myself wrapped in lies, which do not seem to penetrate my soul, as if they are not really a part of me. They are like costumes.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “To the woman with the least intelligence, there must come, at some time or other, the realization that housework is animal work and that there are other occupations in the world a thousand times more refined, more enriching, for which she is also suited and to which she has a right.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “I must know, he thinks. It must be clear to me. There is a world which is closed to him, a world of shadings, gradations, nuances, and subtleties. He is a genius and yet he is too explicit. June slips between his fingers. You cannot posses without loving.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Asia discovered two remedies for the cruelty of man, art and religion. America discarded both and is drowning in hate and aggressivity.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “The ivory tower of the artist may be the only stronghold left for human values, cultural treasures, man’s cult of beauty.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “They courted the face on the screen, the face of translucence, the face of wax on which men found it possible to imprint the image of their fantasy.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Either one fails in one’s art or in one’s life.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “In my dreams I sleep with everybody.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Since desire always goes towards that which is our direct opposite, it forces us to love that which will make us suffer.”

Anaïs Nin Quote: “Secrets. Need to disguise. The novel was born of this.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “A man who lives unrelated to other human beings dies. But a man who lives unrelated to himself also dies.”

Anaïs Nin Quote: “Most artists have retired too absolutely; they grow rusty, inflexible to the flow of currents.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “Anxiety is love’s greatest killer, because it is like the stranglehold of the drowning.”
Anaïs Nin Quote: “He has, like me, a sense of smell. I let him inhale me, then I slip away.”
