“Io, con un istinto profondo, scelgo un uomo che esige la mia forza, che fa richieste enormi su di me, che non mette in dubbio il mio coraggio o la mia durezza, che non mi crede ingenua o innocente, che ha il coraggio di trattarmi come una donna.”(Anaïs Nin)

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”(Anaïs Nin)

“Je choisis, avec l’instinct le plus profond, un homme qui contraint ma force, qui a d’énormes exigences envers moi, qui ne doute ni de mon courage ni de ma solidité, qui ne me croit pas naïve ou innocente, qui a le courage de me traiter comme une femme.”(Anaïs Nin)

Anaïs Nin “When we totally accept a pattern not made by us, not truly our own, we wither and die. People’s conventional structure is often a façade. Under the most rigid conventionality there is always an individual, a human being with original thoughts or inventive fantasy, which he does not dare expose for fear of ridicule, and this is what the writer and artist are willing to do for us. They are guides and map makers to greater sincerity. They are useful, in fact indispensable, to the community. They keep before our eyes the variations which make human beings so interesting. The men who built America were the genuine physical adventurers in a physical world. This world once built, we need adventurers in the realm of art and science. If we suppress the adventure of the spirit, we will have the anarchist and the rebel, who will burst out from too narrow confines in the form of violence and crime.”
