Angela Anaïs Juana Antolina Rosa Edelmira Nin y Culmell, known as Anaïs Nin, was a diarist, essayist, novelist, and writer of both short stories and erotica. These Anaïs Nin quotes reveal inspiring insights on self-discovery, relationships, travel and more!
Born to Cuban parents in France, she spent her childhood between Cuba and Spain and a period of 16 years in Paris, before establishing herself as an author in America.
From the age of eleven, Nin wrote prolifically in journals. Many of these diaries exposed her private thoughts, marriages, and many affairs when published. In addition to journaling, Nin wrote several novels, essays, short stories, critical studies, and volumes of erotica.
The Feminist Movement of the 1960s made her a popular lecturer at many universities, while a surge of interest in her life and her thoughts on sexuality led to the posthumous release of Delta of Venus, Little Birds, and other works after her death in 1977.
Powerful, seductive, and unashamedly feminine, these Anaïs Nin quotes define a legacy that remains popular today. Here are her finest words in one place.
