Andre Breton

Andre Breton

French poet, one of the founders of realism
To speak of God, to think of God, is in every respect to show what one is made of. I have always wagered against God and I regard the little that I have won in this world as simply the outcome of this bet. However paltry may have been the stake (my life) I am conscious of having won to the full. Everything that is doddering, squint-eyed, vile, polluted and grotesque is summoned up for me in that one word: God!More Andre Breton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Leave everything. Leave Dada. Leave your wife. Leave your mistress. Leave your hopes and fears. Leave your children in the woods. Leave the substance for the shadow. Leave your easy life, leave what you are given for the future. Set off on the roads.More Andre Breton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The simplest Surrealist act consists of dashing down the street, pistol in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd. Anyone who, at least once in his life, has not dreamed of thus putting an end to the petty system of debasement and cretinization in effect has a well-defined place in that crowd with his belly at barrel-level.More Andre Breton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The mind which plunges into Surrealism, relives with burning excitement the best part of childhood.More Andre Breton quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is nothing with which it is so dangerous to take liberties as liberty itself.More Andre Breton quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
