Andre Breton

Andre Breton

No rules exist, and examples are simply life-savers answering the appeals of rules making vain attempts to exist.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If I place love above everything, it is because for me it is the most desperate, the most despairing state of affairs imaginable.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To reduce the imagination to a state of slavery --even though it would mean the elimination of what is commonly called happiness --is to betray all sense of absolute justice within oneself. Imagination alone offers me some intimation of what can be.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing with which it is so dangerous to take liberties as liberty itself.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind at which life and death, the real and the imagined, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, high and low, cease to be perceived as contradictions.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Perhaps I am doomed to retrace my steps under the illusion that I am exploring, doomed to try and learn what I should simply recognize, learning a mere fraction of what I have forgotten.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No one who has lived even for a fleeting moment for something other than life in its conventional sense and has experienced the exaltation that this feeling produces can then renounce his new freedom so easily.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is living and ceasing to live that are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the world we live in everything militates in favor of things that have not yet happened, of things that will never happen again.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The work of art, just like any fragment of human life considered in its deepest meaning, seems to me devoid of value if it does not offer the hardness, the rigidity, the regularity, the luster on every interior and exterior facet, of the crystal.More Andre Breton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.More Andre Breton [10/20/2011 10:10:20]
Dali is like a man who hesitates between talent and genius, or, as one might once have said, between vice and virtue.More Andre Breton [10/20/2011 10:10:29]
I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than to those occurring in dreams... Man... is above all the plaything of his memory.More Andre Breton [10/20/2011 10:10:45]
Love is when you meet someone who tells you something new about yourself.More Andre Breton [10/20/2011 10:10:15]
Of all those arts in which the wise excel, Nature's chief masterpiece is writing well.More Andre Breton [10/20/2011 10:10:33]
Words make love with one another. More Andre Breton [10/20/2011 10:10:53]
Perhaps I am doomed to retrace my steps under the illusion that I am exploring, doomed to try and learn what I should simply recognize, learning a mere fraction of what I have forgotten.More Andre Breton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The work of art, just like any fragment of human life considered in its deepest meaning, seems to me devoid of value if it does not offer the hardness, the rigidity, the regularity, the luster on every interior and exterior facet, of the crystal.More Andre Breton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The man that cannot visualize a horse galloping on a tomato is an idiotMore Andre Breton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is living and ceasing to live that are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere.More Andre Breton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
