"I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically,
in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, And when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, One way or another.”
—Anaïs Nin
