Quotes

Just some quote I love

I think this is my favourite quote, when I first read it I felt that someone else truly understood me and I put it here because this is what is in my soul:

I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling all that I am capable of doing but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding. Anais Nin

Likewise the following is a shorter quote along the same lines:

I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman. Anais Nin

The most accurate love quote I have found is next, though very short I believe it explains everything about the nature of love:

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. Robert Heinlein

Another love quote that I adore is so generic but so beautiful that I have to include it as it was part of the reason I fell in love with Shakespeare:

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep; the more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite. William Shakespeare

Think what you like about me for including this but I adore this line from “Love Story”:

This love is difficult but it’s real. Taylor Swift

Wise words on individuality:

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. Oscar Wilde

A truer word was never spoken:

Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination. Mark Twain

Something that I will keep repeating if the depression ever tries to take me again:

It takes far less courage to kill yourself than it takes to make yourself wake up one more time. It is harder to stay where you are than to get out. Dorothy Thompson
