Anaïs Nin : Ordinary life does not interest me

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”


I am only responsible for my own heart, you offered yours up for the smashing my darling. Only a fool would give out such a vital organ.”


“When others asked the truth of me, I was convinced it was not the truth they wanted, but an illusion they could bear to live with.


“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.


“I hate men who are afraid of women’s strength.


How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.


Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people’s.”


“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.”


“I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy.”


I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.”


I will always be the virgin-prostitute, the perverse angel, the two-faced sinister and saintly woman.
