Hélène Cixous
“You only have to look at the Medusa straight on to see her. And she's not deadly. She's beautiful and she's laughing.”
Helene Cixous

Hélène Cixous
“The only book that is worth writing is the one we don’t have the courage or strength to write. The book that hurts us (we who are writing), that makes us tremble, redden, bleed”
Hélène Cixous

Hélène Cixous
“By writing her self, woman will return to the body which has been more than confiscated from her, which has been turned into the uncanny stranger on display - the ailing or dead figure, which so often turns out to be the nasty companion, the cause and location of inhibitions. Censor the body and you censor breath and speech at the same time.
Write your self. Your body must be heard. Only then will the immense resources of the unconscious spring forth.”
Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa

Hélène Cixous
“I do believe in poetry. I believe that there are creatures endowed with the power to put things together and bring them back to life”
Hélène Cixous, The Book of Promethea

Hélène Cixous
“When I write, it's everything that we don't know we can be that is written out of me, without exclusions, without stipulation, and everything we will be calls us to the unflagging, intoxicating, unappeasable search for love. In one another we will never be lacking.”
Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa
