Anais Nin was about as bright as you’d expect

Saturday, 19 January 2002

She said, “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

Courage can be confused with a shortage of self-respect by those who so utterly lack the latter that the need to claim the former becomes genuine. And perhaps party conversation shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s willingness to commit moral seppuku, but courage cannot.

At least her grammar was good. You really shouldn’t overlook that.
