Quote reblogged from Poe's Mistress with 60 notes
Oral drive, anal drive, vocal drive - all these drives are our strengths, and among them is the gestation drive - just like the desire to write: a desire to live self from within, a desire for the swollen belly, for language, for blood.
Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa, translation by Keith Cohen and Paula Cohen
