Anaïs Nin Quote

I had a feeling that Pandora's box contained the mysteries of woman's sensuality, so different from man's and for which man's language was inadequate. The language of sex had yet to be invented. The language of the senses was yet to be explored. D. H. Lawrence began to give instinct a language, he tried to escape the clinical, the scientific, which only captures what the body feels.


As quoted in D. H. Lawrence and Nine Women Writers (1996) by Leo Hamalian, p. 90
