“There is a way of living which makes for greater airiness, space, ease, freedom. It is like an airplane’s rise above the storms. It is a way of looking at obstacles as something to overcome; of looking at what defeats us as a monster created by ourselves, within ourselves, by our fears, and therefore dissolvable and transformable.”

The Diary of Anaïs Nin (Vol. 4 1944–1947) (New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1971), 148.
