Love this quote, from a woman who lived life to the fullest. And so true, our memories of other times, people, and places last forever..

Anaïs Nin lived in Louveciennes near Versailles.
So it's why she wrote diaries ? She got a very pleasant life.

cergie - good question... I think she was compelled from deep within.
