Anaïs Nin
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.”
Anais Nin

Anaïs Nin
“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
Anais Nin

Milan Kundera
“The heaviest of burdens crushes us, we sink beneath it, it pins us to the ground. But in love poetry of every age, the woman longs to be weighed down by the man's body.The heaviest of burdens is therefore simultaneously an image of life's most intense fulfillment. The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness?”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Milan Kundera
“You can't measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.”
Milan Kundera

Anaïs Nin
“The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say.”
Anais Nin
