Women are not at their ease except with those who take chances with them, and enter into their spirit.
by Ninon de l’Enclos
Sometimes it’s about “going for it”, grabbing what you want. I had a conversation with some friends lately regarding the matter; a lot of interesting opinions came up. I think to go for it is an innate personal characteristic that not everyone can just “do”. One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can’t just utter.
The quote above is rather more complicated to explain; I merely braised on the middle part. As for “their ease” and how to “enter”, well, that’s something we can discuss another time.
[Narcissistic] women have the greatest fascination for men … The charm of a child lies to a great extent in his narcissism, his self-sufficiency and inaccessibility, just as does the charm of certain animals which seem not to concern themselves about us, such as cats … It is as if we envied them their power of retaining a blissful state of mind—an unassailable libido-position which we ourselves have since abandoned.
by Sigmund Freud
Humans, like nature, hate a vacuum, and emotional distance and silence make them strain to fill up the empty space with words and heat of their own.
