Famous quotes containing the word breton:

    To reduce the imagination to a state of slavery—even though it would mean the elimination of what is commonly called happiness—is to betray all sense of absolute justice within oneself. Imagination alone offers me some intimation of what can be.
    —André Breton (1896–1966)

    It is impossible for me to envisage a picture as being other than a window, and ... my first concern is then to know what it looks out on.
    —André Breton (1896–1966)

    No one who has lived even for a fleeting moment for something other than life in its conventional sense and has experienced the exaltation that this feeling produces can then renounce his new freedom so easily.
    —André Breton (1896–1966)
