“Las mujeres se presentan francas y risueñas,
comprendiendo muy bien
que no es
preciso ser mojigatas para ser virtuosas”
― Ignacio Manuel Altamirano, Clemencia
At night too,
she puzzled the mystery of her desperate need of kindness.
As other girls prayed for handsomeness in a lover,
or for wealth, or for power, or for poetry, she had prayed fervently:
let him be kind.
— Anaïs Nin, ASpy in the House of Love
