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 naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman. Anais Nin
Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back – a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.
Anaïs Nin (1903 – 1977)

You will never know true happiness until you have truly loved, and you will never understand what pain really is until you have lost it.- Anonymous
