I love the abstract, delicate, profound, vague, voluptuously wordless sensation of living ecstatically.

I grow older by the minute—I feel it myself. I see so clearly what I want to write and how I want to write it. I don’t feel indecision about anything, somehow, and I tremble to observe my own assurance, the strength I feel while I create, the determination with which I reach out for certain things, the cool way I regard life when I write, the curious way that my idealism has been mixed with my fatalism, so that I can possess the soul of a dreamer and that of a cynic at the same time. Mind and spirit no longer quarrel to rule me—they have so closely united that I judge with my emotions and feel with my mind. Pretty soon I shall believe that there is no distinction between reason and emotion, that ultimately they are one and the same thing.

“Don't wait for it, create a world, your world. Alone. Stand alone. Create. And then it comes to you. It was only when I wrote my first book that the world I wanted to live in opened up to me.”

I long to have pretty lingerie, dozens of little dresses, books — and roses, roses, roses.

whoever knows me knows that in order to understand who i am you have to keep in mind that passage that anais nin wrote “i have always been tormented by the image of multiplicity of selves. some day i call it richness and other day i see it as a disease" and that one from virginia woolf “i am not one and simple, but complex and many" and that one walt whitman gave us “do i contradict myself? very well then i contradict myself. (i am large, i contain multitude)” and make peace with that as much as I had to in order to love myself properly.

All I want is not to poison life anymore with tragedy. My tears are exhausted, my capacity for suffering is exhausted.

I am attracted by unconventionality. I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.

I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don’t know why, some people fill the gaps but other people emphasize my loneliness.

If by romantic they mean someone who dreams, I am a romantic, but I shall keep my crown of dreams a secret.

I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing.
