We all carry within us our places of exile, our crimes, and our ravages. But our task is not to unleash them on the world; it is to fight them in ourselves and in others.
The act of love . . . is a confession. Selfishness screams aloud, vanity shows off, or else true generosity reveals itself.
Some cry: 'Love me!!' Others: 'Don't love me!!' But a certain genus, the worst and most unhappy, cries: 'Don't love me and be faithful to me!!'
I love life - that's my real weakness. I love it so much that I am incapable of imagining what is not life.
Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is.
Martyrs, cher ami, must choose between being forgotten, mocked, or made use of. As for being understood - never!!!
There is only misfortune in not being loved; there is misery in not loving.
Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not tolerate Reason.
