“You have to be very fond of men. Very, very fond. You have to be very fond of them to love them. Otherwise they're simply unbearable.”

"Men like women who write. Even though they don't say so. A writer is a foreign country."

"No other human being, no woman, no poem or music, book or painting can replace alcohol in its power to give man the illusion of real creation."

"When a woman drinks it's as if an animal were drinking, or a child. Alcoholism is scandalous in a woman, and a female alcoholic is rare, a serious matter. It's a slur on the divine in our nature."

Marguerite Duras
