Famous quotes containing the words jean genet and/or genet:

    Anyone who knows a strange fact shares in its singularity.
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)

    Perhaps having built a barricade when you’re sixteen provides you with a sort of safety rail. If you’ve once taken part in building one, even inadvertently, doesn’t its usually latent image reappear like a warning signal whenever you’re tempted to join the police, or support any manifestation of Law and Order?
    —Jean Genet (1910–1986)
