    Albert Einstein
    “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
    Albert Einstein

    Anaïs Nin
    “We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 7: 1966-1974

    Anaïs Nin
    “Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous. I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist; I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite dimension. But I am not always in what I call a state of grace. I have days of illuminations and fevers. I have days when the music in my head stops. Then I mend socks, prune trees, can fruits, polish furniture. But while I am doing this I feel I am not living.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

    Anaïs Nin
    “Do you know what I would answer to someone who asked me for a description of myself, in a hurry? This:

    ?? !!

    For indeed my life is a perpetual question mark--my thirst for books, my observations of people, all tend to satisfy a great, overwhelming desire to know, to understand, to find an answer to a million questions. And gradually the answers are revealed, many things are explained, and above all, many things are given names and described, and my restlessness is subdued. Then I become an exclamatory person, clapping my hands to the immense surprises the world holds for me, and falling from one ecstasy into another. I have the habit of peeping and prying and listening and seeking--passionate curiosity and expectation. But I have also the habit of being surprised, the habit of being filled with wonder and satisfaction each time I stumble on some wondrous thing. The first habit could make me a philosopher or a cynic or perhaps a humorist. But the other habit destroys all the delicate foundations, and I find each day that I am still...only a Woman!”
    Anaïs Nin, The Early Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 2: 1920-1923

    Anaïs Nin
    “There are many ways to be free. One of them is to transcend reality by imagination, as I try to do.”
    Anaïs Nin

    Anaïs Nin
    “In my childhood diary I wrote: “I have decided that it is better not to love anyone, because when you love people, then you have to be separated from them, and that hurts too much.”
    Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934
