DAILY INSPIRATION: ANAIS NIN

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."

"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing."

"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before, to test your limits, to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

"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 cannot 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."
"The only abnormality is the inability to love."

"Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it."
"The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment with it, that was the miracle."

"We don't have a language for the senses. Feelings are images, sensations are like musical sounds."
