The Diary of Anaïs Nin Volume 1

A man can never have the indulgence for a woman’s behavior which a woman has towards man’s behavior, because a woman’s maternal instinct makes her perceive the child within the man. And it is when she becomes aware of this that she cannot judge. It may be that a paternal man may get the same protective perception about a woman. And this may explain these excessive indulgences no one from the outside can find a justification for.
