“A great sorrow, and one I am only beginning to understand: we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are….

How do we know what’s right for us? Every shrink, every career counselor, every Disney princess knows the answer: ‘Be yourself.’ ‘Follow your heart.’

Only here’s what I really, really want someone to explain to me. What if one happens to be possessed of a heart that can’t be trusted—? What if the heart, for its own unfathomable reasons, leads one willfully and in a cloud of unspeakable radiance away from health, domesticity, civic responsibility and strong social connections and all the blandly-held common virtues and instead straight towards a beautiful flare of ruin, self-immolation, disaster?”

– Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

“She considered her clothes with the same weighing of possible external dangers as she had the new day which had entered through her closed windows and doors.
Believing in the danger which sprang from objects as well as people, which dress, which shoes, which coat demanded less of her panicked heart and body? For a costume was a challenge too, a discipline, a trap which once adopted could influence the actor….

She selected her cape which seemed more protective, more enveloping.
Also the cape held within its folds something of what she imagined was a quality possessed exclusively by man: some dash, some audacity, some swagger of freedom denied to woman.”

– Anais Nin, A Spy In The House Of Love

“The beauty of your arm is exactly like that of your body. If I didn’t know your body I would want it, just from seeing the shape of your arm.”

– Anais Nin, A Spy In The House Of Love

“People cry at weddings for the same reason they cry at happy endings: because they so desperately want to believe in something they know is not credible.”

– Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

“The enemy of love is never outside, it’s not a man or woman, it’s what we lack in ourselves.”

– Anais Nin, A Spy In the House Of Love
