Weekend Inspirations: Anais Nin

Posted by on April 21, 2012

“If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don’t write, because our culture has no use for it.”
― Anaïs Nin

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

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

“Passion gives me moments of wholeness”
― Anaïs Nin

“Writers do not live one life, they live two. There is the living and then there is the writing. There is the second tasting, the delayed reaction.”
― Anaïs Nin
