"Arthur Rimbaud Quotes"

+ Life is the farce we are all forced to endure.

+ I'm now making myself as scummy as I can. Why? I want to be a poet, and I'm working at turning myself into a seer.

+ He reaches the unknown; and even if, crazed, he ends up by losing the understanding of his visions, at least he has seen them! Let him die charging through those unutterable, unnameable things: other horrible workers will come; they will begin from the horizons where he has succumbed!
