Anaïs Nin

We don’t have a language for the senses. Feelings are images, sensations are like musical sounds.
 
Lillian was reminded of the talmudic words: “We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
 
When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons.

    She took off her dress. She had long black hair, a pale face, slanted green eyes, greener than the sea. She was beautifully formed, with high breasts, long legs, a stylized body. She knew how to swim better than any other woman on the island. She slid into the water and began her long easy strokes towards Evelyn.
