"Charles Baudelaire Quotes"


+ It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree.

+ There exist only three beings worthy of respect: the priest, the soldier, the poet. To know, to kill, to create.

+ Unable to suppress love, the Church wanted at least to disinfect it, and it created marriage.

+ It is necessary to work, if not from inclination, at least from despair. Everything considered, work is less boring than amusing oneself.

+ Which one of us has not dreamed, on ambitious days, of the miracle of a poetic prose: musical, without rhythm or rhyme; adaptable enough and discordant enough to conform to the lyrical movements of the soul, the waves of revery, the jolts of consciousness?

+ The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist.

+ Imagination is the queen of truth, and possibility is one of the regions of truth. She is positively akin to infinity.

+ Delacroix was passionately in love with passion, and coldly determined to seek the means of expressing passion in the most visible manner. In this dual character, be it said in passing, we find the two distinguishing marks of the most substantial geniuses, extreme geniuses.

+ Alas, the vices of man, as horrifying as they are presumed to be, contain proof (if only in their infinite expansiveness!) of his bent for the infinite.

+ An artist is an artist only because of his exquisite sense of beauty, a sense which shows him intoxicating pleasures, but which at the same time implies and contains an equally exquisite sense of all deformities and all disproportion.
