Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Race of Cain, ascend to heaven, And cast God down upon the earth!”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “You can live three days without bread – without poetry, never; and those of you who can say the contrary are mistaken; they are out of their minds.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The idea which man forms of beauty imprints itself throughout his attire, rumples or stiffens his garments, rounds off or aligns his gestures, and, finally, even subtly penetrates the features of his face.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The saddest thing is that every love has an unhappy ending, and all the more unhappy in proportion to how divinely it began, with what wings it first took flight.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The mixture of the grotesque and the tragic is agreeable to the spirit, as are discords to the jaded ear.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Conceive a canvas for a lyrical or fairytale buffoonery, for a pantomime, and translate it into a serious novel. Drown everything in an abnormal and dreamy atmosphere, – in the atmosphere of the great days. – It must be something soothing, – even serene in its passion. – Regions of pure Poetry.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Samuel was, more than all the others, the man of failed works of beauty; – a fantastical and sickly creature, whose poetry shines forth much more in his person than in his works, and who, around one o’clock in the morning, between the dazzling of a coal fire and the clock’s tick-tock, always seemed to be the god of impotence, – a modern and hermaphrodite god, – so colossal an impotence, so enormous, reaching epic proportions!”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Romanticism is a grace, celestial or infernal, that bestows us eternal stigmata.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “To be away from home and yet find oneself everywhere at home; to see the world, to be at the centre of the world, and yet remain hidden from the world.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “God is a scandal, – a profitable scandal.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The solitary and thoughtful stroller finds a singular intoxication in this universal communion. The man who loves to lose himself in a crowd enjoys feverish delights that the egoist locked up in himself as in a box, and the slothful man like a mollusk in his shell, will be eternally deprived of. He adopts as his own all the occupations, all the joys and all the sorrows that chance offers.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “By a fatal law, a genius is always an idiot.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “He sadly resumes his path toward a desert that he knows is similar to the one he just crossed, escorted by the pale phantom they call Reason, who lights up the aridity of his path with a weak lantern, and who, when the thirst of passion comes back from time to time, quenches it with the poison of ennui.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Where one should see only what is beautiful, our public looks only for what is true.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “There is an invincible taste for prostitution in the heart of man, from which comes his horror of solitude. He wants to be ‘two’. The man of genius wants to be ‘one’... It is this horror of solitude, the need to lose oneself in the external flesh, that man nobly calls ‘the need to love’.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “He possessed the logic of all good intentions and a knowledge of all the tricks of his trade, and yet he never succeeded at anything, because he believed too much in the impossible. Surprising? Why so? He was forever in the act of conceiving it!”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Genius is merely childhood recollected at will.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The poet resembles this prince of cloud and sky Who frequents the tempest and laughs at the bowman; When exiled on the earth, the butt of hoots and jeers, His giant wings prevent him from walking.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “For I desire the dark, the naked, and the lone.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The mainspring of genius is curiosity.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Take it easy, Sadness. Settle down.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Now is the time to get drunk! To stop being the martyred slaves of time, to get absolutely drunk – on wine, poetry, or on virtue, as you please.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Nature can counsel nothing but crime.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “The most prostituted being, the Being par excellence, is God, since He is the supreme friend to every individual; since He is the common, inexhaustible reservoir of love.”
Charles Baudelaire Quote: “Multitude, solitude: identical terms, and interchangeable by the active and fertile poet. The man who is unable to people his solitude is equally unable to be alone in a bustling crowd.”
