Love Anais Nin!
On my Facebook page, you will see that the quotes I have there are two Anais Nin quotes that I have loved since I was I was a kid.
When I came across this list of 41 bad girl quotes from Thought Catalogue, this was definitely a case of right click, scrape similar, export to Google Sheets.
I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.”
Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”
Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous.
I refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. to enter ordinary relationships, I want ecstasy.
Reminds me of Seth Godin’s quote “Quit or be exceptional. Average for losers”, though Anais Nin was far more hedonistic.
