André Gide Quotations

-Look for your own. Do not do what someone else could do as well as you. Do not say, do not write what someone else could say, could write as well as you. Care for nothing in yourself but what you feel exists nowhere else, and out of yourself create, impatiently, the most irreplaceable of beings.

-Seize from every moment its unique novelty and do not prepare your joys.

-Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.

-Dare to be yourself.

-The most decisive actions of our life – I mean those that are most likely to decide the whole course of our future – are, more often than not, unconsidered.

-One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
