Jean Cocteau Quote: “A picture neither saddening nor gladdening I fear; neither beautiful nor ugly.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “Poetry is a machine that manufactures love. Its other virtues escape me.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “I am a lie that always speaks the truth.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “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.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “Such is the role of poetry. It unveils, in the strict sense of the word. It lays bare, under a light which shakes off torpor, the surprising things which surround us and which our senses record mechanically.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “One of the characteristics of the dream is that nothing surprises us in it.”

Jean Cocteau Quote: “Do as the beautiful woman: see to your figure and your petticoats. Though, of course, I am not speaking literally.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “How admirable the attitude of one who has made good use of the time granted him and who did not interfere by trying to be his own judge. Duration of human life belongs to those who mould each moment, sculpture it and do not trouble about the verdict.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “Listen very carefully to the first criticisms of your work. Note just what it is about your work that the reviewers don’t like; it may be the only thing in your work that is original and worthwhile.”

If it does not kill, it transmits to some an energy alien to their own resources; to others it permits what the law forbids and accustoms them to short cuts.

Jean Cocteau Quote: “When I make a film, it is a sleep in which I am dreaming.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “There is neither magic nor master’s eye. Only a great deal of love and a great deal of work.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “I grant you that, if you’ll admit, as I do, that we are pawns of an unknown force that lives within us that dictates our actions and compels us to speak this language.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “Delicious was not a term applicable to anything below the crust of that volcano, whose heady vapors numbed his ravished senses.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “The ear disapproves but tolerates certain musical pieces; transfer them into the domain of our nose, and we will be forced to flee.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “I constantly regretted having to cut out bits of intense poetry. But one mustn’t, at any cost, be seduced by an attractive idea if it hasn’t got its right place.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “It is, it seems, a social crime to desire solitude.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “When I think of all the books I have yet to read, I am sure that I am still happy.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “Never, shrieked Paul, would he consent to meet the “filthy Jew”: he was coming along tomorrow at the appointed hour to slap his face.”
Jean Cocteau Quote: “I am neither cheerful nor sad. But i can be completely the one or completely the other to excess.”
