Gustave Flaubert

Gustave Flaubert

was a French writer who is counted among the greatest Western novelists
Years passed; and he endured the idleness of his intelligence and the inertia of his heart.More Gustave Flaubert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Before her marriage she had thought that she had love within her grasp; but since the happiness which she had expected this love to bring her hadn’t come, she supposed she must have been mistaken. And Emma tried to imagine just what was meant, in life, by the words “bliss,” “passion,” and “rapture” - words that had seemed so beautiful to her in books.More Gustave Flaubert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I took Eugene Sue's Arthur from the reading-room. It's indescribable, enough to make you vomit. You have to read this to realize the pitifulness of money, success, and the public. Literature has become consumptive. It spits and slobbers, covers its blisters with salve and sticking-plaster, and has grown bald from too much hair-slicking. It would take Christ of art to cure this leper.More Gustave Flaubert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Love, to her, was something hat comes suddenly, like a blinding flash of lightening - a heaven-sent storm hurled into life, uprooting it, sweeping every will before it like a leaf, engulfing all feelings.More Gustave Flaubert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As humanity perfects itself, man becomes degraded. When everything is reduced to the mere counter-balancing of economic interests, what room will there be for virtue? When Nature has been so subjugated that she has lost all her original forms, where will that leave the plastic arts? And so on. In the mean time, things are going to get very murky.More Gustave Flaubert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
