Quote from Anais Nin?
The following is commonly attributed to Nin:- "Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, or a new country."
Is it hers?
Disputed quote - "We don't see things as they are..."
Found via Google: 'Regarding Eric Silverman's inquiry -- after doing some research, I've come to the conclusion that the attribution to the Talmud originates in a 1961 Anaïs Nin novel, _The Seduction of the Minotaur_, 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."<<' - http://h-net.msu.edu/cgi-bin/logbrowse.pl?trx=vx&list=h-judaic&month=1108&week=b&msg=RizwZWCgeA8woVU9mNOEYQ&user=&pw
Also, this page attributes a nearly identical quote to a work several decades earlier by another author - http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/H._M._Tomlinson
- Don't let one cloud obliterate the whole sky.
- My ideas usually come not at the desk writing but in the midst of living.
- "My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws, and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am." [This is quoted everywhere online as being by Anais Nin, but it doesn't sound like her. Can someone confirm/debunk?]
