-True realism consists in revealing the surprising things which habit keeps covered and prevents us from seeing.
-Beauty is always the result of an accident. Of a violent lapse between acquired habits and those yet to be acquired.
-The ultimate politeness in art consists of speaking only to those who are able to uncover and measure its relationships. Anything else is symbolic, and symbolism is merely transcendental imagery.
-Art produces ugly things which frequently become more beautiful with time. Fashion, on the other hand, produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time.
-The day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying.
-You’ve never seen death? Look in the mirror every day and you will see it like bees working in a glass hive.
-I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.
