For me, the artist simply means one who can transform ordinary life into a beautiful creation with his craft. But I did not mean creation strictly applied only to the arts, I meant creation in life, the creation of a child, a garden, a home...I was referring to creativity in all its aspects...the faculty for healing, consoling, raising the level of life, transforming it by our own efforts. I was talking about the creative will, our salvation. - Anaïs Nin True Quotes, Anaisnin, Woman Power, Anai'S, Book, Writers, Anais Nin, Inspiration Quotes, People

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another.
