Anaïs Nin says:

Eroticism is one of the basic means of self-knowledge, as basic as poetry.

I would like to see women more concerned with women's contributions than with this great battle of attacking men. . . . We should be very busy creating the pattern of the new woman, honoring her gifts, finding out who were the women painters, who were the women historians, who were the women psychologists that we could be interested in. I think that would be much more beneficial.

Read an Excerpt

"All your life you are told you're different from other people,and suddenly the diary revealed not the differences at all, but the sameness, which made me very happy. It was a confirmation of what I'd said in the diary, that if the personal life is lived deeply enough, it becomes really everybody's life."
