Andre Breton – No one who has lived…

No one who has lived even for a fleeting moment for something other than life…


“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

Andre Breton – I have always been amazed…

I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more…


“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

Andre Breton – Everything tends to make us…

Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind…


“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.”
-Andre Breton
