Anaïs Ninová, celým menom Angela Anaïs Juana Antolina Rosa Edelmira Nin y Culmell bola americká spisovateľka dánsko-kubánskeho pôvodu. Pravidelne publikovala intímne denníky, ktoré sa objavovali viacero desaťročí v tlači. Poskytovali pohľad do hĺbok osobného života a vzťahov ženy. Necenzurovaná verzia týchto denníkov bola uverejnená až po jej smrti a smrti jej manžela. Je tiež jednou z prvých žien, ktoré písali erotickú literatúru. Wikipedia

„We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.“

—  Anaïs Nin

February 1954 The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 5 as quoted in Woman as Writer (1978) by Jeannette L. Webber and Joan Grumman, p. 38
Diary entries (1914 - 1974)
Kontext: We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it.
Kontext: The artist is the only one who knows that the world is a subjective creation, that there is a choice to be made, a selection of elements. It is a materialization, an incarnation of his inner world. Then he hopes to attract others into it. He hopes to impose his particular vision and share it with others. And when the second stage is not reached, the brave artist continues nevertheless. The few moments of communion with the world are worth the pain, for it is a world for others, an inheritance for others, a gift to others, in the end. When you make a world tolerable for yourself, you make a world tolerable for others.
We also write to heighten our own awareness of life. We write to lure and enchant and console others. We write to serenade our lovers. We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it. We write to teach ourselves to speak with others, to record the journey into the labyrinth. We write to expand our world when we feel strangled, or constricted, or lonely. We write as the birds sing, as the primitives dance their rituals. 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. When I don't write, I feel my world shrinking. I feel I am in a prison. I feel I lose my fire and my color. It should be a necessity, as the sea needs to heave, and I call it breathing.

„Most artists have retired too absolutely; they grow rusty, inflexible to the flow of currents.“

—  Anaïs Nin

Kontext: This abdiction of life demanded of the artist is to be achieved only relatively. Most artists have retired too absolutely; they grow rusty, inflexible to the flow of currents.

„I believe one writes because one has to create a world in which one can live.“

—  Anaïs Nin

February 1954 The Diary of Anaïs Nin Vol. 5 (1947-1955), as quoted in Woman as Writer (1978) by Jeannette L. Webber and Joan Grumman, p. 38
Diary entries (1914 - 1974)
Kontext: Why one writes is a question I can answer easily, having so often asked it of myself. I believe one writes because one has to create a world in which one can live. I could not live in any of the worlds offered to me — the world of my parents, the world of war, the world of politics. I had to create a world of my own, like a climate, a country, an atmosphere in which I could breathe, reign, and recreate myself when destroyed by living. That, I believe, is the reason for every work of art.

„Life shrinks or expands according to one's courage.“

—  Anaïs Nin

As quoted in French Writers of the Past (2000) by Carol A. Dingle, p. 126
Varianta: Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
