“I am left knowing that I love you more than my own skin.
And though you may not love me as much, you do love me a little.
If this is not true, I will always be hopeful that it could be.
I adore you. -Frida”
Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. - Frida Kahlo
Frida Kahlo’s lipstick imprint on her letter to Bertram Wolfe, March 24, 1936. She signs herself “Chicua,” an affectionate nickname given to her by Diego Rivera, and calls Wolfe “Boit.” (Bertram D. Wolfe papers, box 211, Hoover Institution Archives)
"I don’t give a shit what the world thinks. I was born a bitch, I was born a painter, I was born fucked. But I was happy in my way. You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious. I am; simply I am…You are a shit."
- Frida Kahlo, from an unsent letter to Diego Rivera
