Le Enfant Terrible | Jean Cocteau’s Radical Reality in Quotes

 “When I write, I disturb. When I show a film, I disturb. When I exhibit my painting, I disturb, and I disturb if I don’t. I have a knack for disturbing.”
“I’m not willing just to be tolerated. That wounds my love of love and of liberty.”
“A man’s truest self realizations might require him, above all, to learn to close his eyes: to let himself be taken unawares, to follow his dark angel, to risk his illegal instincts.”
“It is excruciating to be an unbeliever with a spirit that is deeply religious… Poetry is a religion without hope.”
“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
