Writing and remembering

Filed under: Quotes

It’s impossible to say a thing exactly the way it was, because what you say can never be exact, you always have to leave something out, there are too many parts, sides, cross currents, nuances, too many gestures, which could mean this or that, too many shapes which can never fully be described, too many flavours in the air or on the tongue, half-colours, too many.

Long ago when I had free time I used to read a lot of books. I also used to post quotes on my blog. Sadly this had not happened in awhile, but that is going to change starting next week. So until then, one of my favorite all-time quotes from Cities of the Interior. It still gives me the chills every time I read it to myself:



Perhaps if I run fast enough ahead of the present I will out-distance the shock. What is the difference between fear and intuition? How clearly I have seen what I imagine, as clearly as a vision. What is it I feel now, fear or premonition?

Anaïs Nin
