Anaïs Nin
“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.”
Anaïs Nin, Incest: From "A Journal of Love": The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1932-1934

Nadezhda Mandelstam
“I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.”
Nadezhda Mandelstam, Hope Against Hope

Ved Mehta
“Surely only boring people went in for conversations consisting of questions and answers. The art of true conversation consisted in the play of minds.”
Ved Mehta, All for Love

Leo Tolstoy, Essays, Letters and Miscellanies

Walter Mosley
“A peasant that reads is a prince in waiting.”
