Anaïs Nin, celým jménem Angela Anaïs Juana Antolini Rosa Edelmira Nin y Culmell byla americká spisovatelka dánsko[zdroj?]-kubánského původu. Pravidelně publikovala intimní deníky, které se po několik desetiletí objevovaly v tisku. Poskytovaly pohled do hloubek osobního života a vztahů ženy. Necenzurovaná verze těchto deníků byla zveřejněna až po její smrti a smrti jejího manžela. Je také jednou z prvních žen, které psaly erotickou literaturu.

„Když slepě přijmeme náboženství, politický systém, literární dogma, staneme se automaty. Přestaneme růst.“

—  Anaïs Nin
(en) When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow. Source: [Nin, Anais, 1972, Diary Of Anais Nin Volume 4 1944-1947: Vol. 4 (1944-1947), Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 10]

„We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are.“

—  Anaïs Nin, kniha Little Birds
Disputed, The Seduction of the Minotaur (1961); the documentation of the conflicting citations available on this page ( HNet http://h-net.msu.edu/cgi-bin/logbrowse.pl?trx=vx&list=H-Judaic&month=1108&msg=RizwZWCgeA8woVU9mNOEYQ) seems very thorough, and in the end attributes the quote to this novel, which includes the line: Lillian was reminded of the talmudic words: "We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are." With Nin's description of the statement as "Talmudic" it afterwards began to be attributed to the Jewish Talmud, without any cited version or passage. Similar statements appear in You Can Negotiate Anything (1982) by Herb Cohen: "You and I do not see things as they are. We see things as we are"; and in Awareness (1992) by Anthony de Mello: "We see people and things not as they are, but as we are". Another similar statement without cited source is also attributed to Nin https://web.archive.org/web/20050322041559/http://learn-gs.org/learningctr/tutorial/4.html: We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

„We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.“

—  Anaïs Nin
Diary entries (1914 - 1974), Context: We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it. Context: The artist is the only one who knows that the world is a subjective creation, that there is a choice to be made, a selection of elements. It is a materialization, an incarnation of his inner world. Then he hopes to attract others into it. He hopes to impose his particular vision and share it with others. And when the second stage is not reached, the brave artist continues nevertheless. The few moments of communion with the world are worth the pain, for it is a world for others, an inheritance for others, a gift to others, in the end. When you make a world tolerable for yourself, you make a world tolerable for others. We also write to heighten our own awareness of life. We write to lure and enchant and console others. We write to serenade our lovers. We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it. We write to teach ourselves to speak with others, to record the journey into the labyrinth. We write to expand our world when we feel strangled, or constricted, or lonely. We write as the birds sing, as the primitives dance their rituals. If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it. When I don't write, I feel my world shrinking. I feel I am in a prison. I feel I lose my fire and my color. It should be a necessity, as the sea needs to heave, and I call it breathing. February 1954 The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 5 as quoted in Woman as Writer (1978) by Jeannette L. Webber and Joan Grumman, p. 38
