I smile because I listen to the OTHER and I believe the OTHER.

The struggle to emerge out of the past, clean of memories; the inadequacy of our hearts to cut life into separate and final portions; the pain of this constant ambivalence and interrelation of emotions; the hunger for frontiers against which we might learn as upon closed doors before we proceed forward; the struggle against diffusion, new beginnings, against finality in acts without finality or end, in our cursedly repercussive being..Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: The struggle to emerge out of the past, clean of memories; the inadequacy of our

He asked if she sold luminous flowers that he had heard about, flowers which shone in the dark. He wanted them, he said, for a woman who shone in the dark. He could swear that when he took her to the theater and she sat back in the dark in her evening dress, her skin was as luminous as the finest sea shell, with a pale pink glow to it. And he wanted these flowers for her to wear in her hair. Mathilde did not have them. But as soon as the man left she went to look at herself in the mirror. This was the kind of feeling she wanted to inspire. Could she?Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: He asked if she sold luminous flowers that he had heard about, flowers which shone

In America the vast spaces accentuate the vast spaces between people, deserts which stretch between human beings. It is a void which has to be spanned by the automobile.

Jazz is the music of the body. The breath comes through brass. It is the body's breath, and the strings' wails and moans are echoes of the body's music. It is the body's vibrations which ripple from the fingers. And the mystery of the withheld theme, known to jazz musicians alone, is like the mystery of our secret life. We give to others only peripheral improvisations.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Jazz is the music of the body. The breath comes through brass. It is the

Like the Baron, Mathilde developed a formula for acting out life as a series of roles - that is, by saying to herself in the morning while brushing her blond hair, "Today I want to become this or that person," and then proceeding to be that person.
One day she decided she would like to be an elegant representative of a well-known Parisian modiste and go to Peru. All she had to do was to act the role. So she dressed with care, presented herself with extraordinary assurance at the house of the modiste, was engaged to be her representative and given a boat ticket to Lima.
Aboard ship, she behaved like a French missionary of elegance. Her innate talent for recognizing good wines, good perfumes, good dressmaking, marked her as a lady of refinement.
Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Like the Baron, Mathilde developed a formula for acting out life as a series of
We are all engaged in the task of peeling off the false selves, the programmed selves, the selves created by our families, our culture, our religions.

It is my secrecy which makes you unhappy, my evasions, my silences. And so I have found a solution. Whenever you get desperate with my mysteries, my ambiguities, here is a set of Chinese puzzle boxes. You have always said that I was myself a Chinese puzzle box. When you are in the mood and I baffle your love of confidences, your love of openness, your love of sharing experiences, then open one of the boxes. And in it you will find a story, a story about me and my life. Do you like this idea? Do you think it will help us to live together?Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: It is my secrecy which makes you unhappy, my evasions, my silences. And so I

We're journeying constantly, but there is always a machine and books, and your body is always close to me and the look in your eyes never changes.

Travel is life-changing. That's the promise made by a thousand websites and magazines, by philosophers and writers down the ages. Mark Twain said it was fatal to prejudice, and Thomas Jefferson said it made you wise. Anais Nin observed that "we travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls." It's all true. Self-transformation is what I sought and what I found.Elisabeth Eaves Anais Sayings By Elisabeth Eaves: Travel is life-changing. That's the promise made by a thousand websites and magazines, by philosophers
You cannot save people. You can only love them.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: You cannot save people. You can only love them.
It is possible I never learned the names of birds in order to discover the bird of peace, the bird of paradise, the bird of the soul, the bird of desire. It is possible I avoided learning the names of composers and their music the better to close my eyes and listen to the mystery of all music as an ocean. It may be I have not learned dates in history in order to reach the essence of timelessness. It may be I never learned geography the better to map my own routes and discover my own lands. The unknown was my compass. The unknown was my encyclopedia. The unnamed was my science and progress.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: It is possible I never learned the names of birds in order to discover the
Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning
The imagination is far better at inventing tortures than life because the imagination is a demon within us and it knows where to strike, where it hurts. It knows the vulnerable spot, and life does not, our friends and lovers do not, because seldom do they have the imagination equal to the task.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: The imagination is far better at inventing tortures than life because the imagination is a

The secret of a full life is to live and relate to others as if they might not be there tomorrow, as if you might not be there tomorrow. It eliminates the vice of procrastination, the sin of postponement, failed communications, failed communions. This thought has made me more and more attentive to all encounters. meetings, introductions, which might contain the seed of depth that might be carelessly overlooked. This feeling has become a rarity, and rarer every day now that we have reached a hastier and more superficial rhythm, now that we believe we are in touch with a greater amount of people, more people, more countries. This is the illusion which might cheat us of being in touch deeply with the one breathing next to us. The dangerous time when mechanical voices, radios, telephones, take the place of human intimacies, and the concept of being in touch with millions brings a greater and greater poverty in intimacy and human vision.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: The secret of a full life is to live and relate to others as if
He had not touched me. He did not need to. His presence had affected me in such a way that I felt as if he had caressed me for a long time.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: He had not touched me. He did not need to. His presence had affected me
I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don't mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don't mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I
I have been a little embarrassed always. But less so the last time. It will all disappear. You have such a delicious sense of humor
I adore that in you. I want always to see you laughing. It belongs to you. I have been thinking of places we ought to go together
little obscure places, here and there, in Paris. Just to say
here I went with Anais
here we ate or danced or got drunk together. Ah, to see you really drunk sometime, that would be a treat! I am almost afraid to suggest it
but Anais, when I think of how you press against me, how eagerly you open your legs and how wet you are, God, it drives me mad to think what you would be like when everything falls away.
Henry Miller Anais Sayings By Henry Miller: I have been a little embarrassed always. But less so the last time. It will
I was sure the old man knew nothing about the beatitudes, ecstasies, dazzling reverberations of sexual encounters. Cut out the poetry was his message. Clinical sex, deprived of all the warmth of love - the orchestration of all the senses, touch, hearing, sight, palate; all the euphoric accompaniments, back-ground music, moods, atmosphere, variations - forced him to resort to literary aphrodisiacs.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: I was sure the old man knew nothing about the beatitudes, ecstasies, dazzling reverberations of
She had acquired some of his gypsy ways, some of his nonchalance, his bohemian indiscipline. She had swung with him into the disorders of strewn clothes, spilled cigarette ashes, slipping into bed all dressed, falling asleep thus, indolence, timelessness ... A region of chaos and moonlight. She liked it there.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: She had acquired some of his gypsy ways, some of his nonchalance, his bohemian indiscipline.
Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people's.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Had I not created my whole world, I would certainly have died in other people's.
By the end of the evening I was like a man, terribly in love with her face and body, which promised so much, and I hated the self created in her by others. Others feel because of her; and because of her, others write poetry; because of her, others hate; others, like Henry, love her in spite of themselves.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: By the end of the evening I was like a man, terribly in love with
I was thinking of my patients, and how the worst moment for them was when they discovered they were masters of their own fate. It was not a matter of bad or good luck. When they could no longer blame fate, they were in despair.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: I was thinking of my patients, and how the worst moment for them was when
everywhere i miss you.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: everywhere i miss you.
Dr Allendy said that it was necessary to become equal to life, that the romantic was defeated by life, really died of it, whether by tuberculosis in the old days, or by neurosis today. I had never thought before of the connection between neurosis and romanticism. Wanting the impossible? Dying when unable to reach it? Not wanting to compromise?Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Dr Allendy said that it was necessary to become equal to life, that the romantic

A voice that had traversed the centuries, so heavy it broke what it touched, so heavy I feared it would ring in me with eternal resonance, a voice rusty with the sound of curses and the hoarse cries that issue from the delta in the last paroxysm of orgasm.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: A voice that had traversed the centuries, so heavy it broke what it touched, so
It is undeniable that the source of all our miseries comes from our obstinacy in maintaining that Paradise is a garden. The psychoanalysts have added to the confusion by interpreting the floating dreams as a flight into space. The mystic is the only one who knows that all states of ecstasy are a state of floating in an ambiance more heavy than air. Paradise is at the bottom of the sea, and I can also prove to you that angels are ships. They have no wings but large sails which they unfold noiselessly at night to cross eternity.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: It is undeniable that the source of all our miseries comes from our obstinacy in
One handles truths like dynamite. Literature is one vast hypocrisy, a giant deception, treachery. All writers have concealed more than they revealed.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: One handles truths like dynamite. Literature is one vast hypocrisy, a giant deception, treachery. All

The mold we give to our lives is so that there will be no cataclysms. The order we seek we are willing to surrender to the flow of life at any time, but it is there as a brake on a car, and our health is a brake. We put brakes on, against our temperament. he said, Even a room, arranged in a certain manner, prevents certain things from taking place in it.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: The mold we give to our lives is so that there will be no cataclysms.

Why is that I never get cut off from pity, sympathy, participation, in spite of the fact that I am living out of my own dream, my interior vision, my fantasies without any interruptions. I dream, I kiss, I have orgasms, I get exalted, I leave the world, I float, I cook, I sew, have nightmares, write in my head, compose, decompose, improvise, invent, I listen to all, I hear all that is said, I feel Spain, I am aware, I am everywhere , I am open to wounds, open to love, I am rooted to my devotions, I am never separete, I am never cut off, never blind, deaf, absent. I hold on to the dream which makes life possible, to the creation which transfigures, to the God who sustains, to the crimes which gave life, to the illusions which makes the marvelous possible. I hold on to the poetry and the human simplicities.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Why is that I never get cut off from pity, sympathy, participation, in spite of
I am losing my great, dissolving, disintegrating pity for others, in which I saw deflected the compassion I wanted for myself. I no longer give compassion, which means I no longer need to receive it.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: I am losing my great, dissolving, disintegrating pity for others, in which I saw deflected
[Y]ou have to learn to intake, to imbibe, to nourish yourself and not be afraid of fullness.

Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The body is an instrument which only gives off music when it is used as a body.

Men from the mountains always dream of the sea, and above all things I love to travel.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: Men from the mountains always dream of the sea, and above all things I love
The writer is the duelist who never fights at the stated hour, who gathers up an insult, like another curious object, a collector's item, spreads it out on his desk later, and then engages in a duel with it verbally. Some people call it weakness. I call it postponement. What is weakness in the man becomes a quality in the writer. For he preserves, collects what will explode later in his work. That is why the writer is the loneliest man in the world; because he lives, fights, dies, is reborn always alone; all his roles are played behind a curtain. In life he is an incongruous figure.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: The writer is the duelist who never fights at the stated hour, who gathers up

I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great
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.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are
There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.Anais Nin Anais Sayings By Anais Nin: There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant
