Favorite Quotes: Anaïs Nin

Henry has always respected the house, but Fraenkel was moved to tears, and talked of how he would make this his base and draw into it all the interesting people of the world, and make “symbols” of them.

“Why symbols?” asked Henry.

“Because that is the only way to hold onto them. As ideas they belong to you, they become incorporated into your world. As human beings…well…modern life makes friendships precarious.”

-from the diaries of Anaïs Nin.
