A Quote by Anaïs Nin on authenticity, generosity, taking, giving, devotion, doing for others, hiding, and disguise

Is devotion to others a cover for the hungers and the needs of the self, of which one is ashamed? I was always ashamed to take. So I gave. It was not a virtue. It was a disguise.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)
