Marguerite Duras
Quotations

Frigidity is desire imagined by a woman who doesn't desire the man offering himself to her. It's the desire of a woman for a man who hasn't yet come to her, whom she doesn't yet know. She's faithful to this stranger even before she belongs to him. Frigidity is the non-desire for whatever is not him.

It was the men I deceived the most that I loved the most.

The best way to fill time is to waste it.
