Andre Breton quotes (17)

All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.
Andre Breton   Category: Love

Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all.
Andre Breton   Category:

Dali is like a man who hesitates between talent and genius, or, as one might once have said, between vice and virtue.
Andre Breton   Category:

Andre Breton   Category:

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.
Andre Breton   Category: Dreams

If I place love above everything, it is because for me it is the most desperate, the most despairing state of affairs imaginable.
Andre Breton   Category:

It is living and ceasing to live that are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere.
Andre Breton   Category:

Love is when you meet someone who tells you something new about yourself.
Andre Breton   Category: Love

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.
Andre Breton   Category:

No rules exist, and examples are simply life-savers answering the appeals of rules making vain attempts to exist.
Andre Breton   Category:

Nothing retains less of desire in art, in science, than this will to industry, booty, possession.
Andre Breton   Category:

Of all the arts in which the wise excel, nature's chief masterpiece is writing well.
Andre Breton   Category:

Of all those arts in which the wise excel, Nature's chief masterpiece is writing well.
Andre Breton   Category:

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.
Andre Breton   Category:

There is nothing with which it is so dangerous to take liberties as liberty itself.
Andre Breton   Category:

What one hides is worth neither more nor less than what one finds. And what one hides from oneself is worth neither more nor less than what one allows others to find.
Andre Breton   Category:

Words make love with one another.
