Alfred de Musset
Things they don’t understand always cause a sensation among the English.
The most despairing songs are the most beautiful, and I know some immortal ones that are pure tears.
I cannot help it – in spite of myself, infinity torments me.
There is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.
Great artists have no country.
Each memorable verse of a true poet has two or three times the written content.
With a kiss let us set out for an unknown world.
How glorious it is – and also how painful – to be an exception.
One must not trifle with love.
The return makes one love the farewell.
