Famous quotes containing the word gourmont:

    Industry has operated against the artisan in favor of the idler, and also in favor of capital and against labor. Any mechanical invention whatsoever has been more harmful to humanity than a century of war.
    —Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    The whole effort of a sincere man is to erect his personal impressions into laws.
    —Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    Science is the only truth and it is the great lie. It knows nothing, and people think it knows everything. It is misrepresented. People think that science is electricity, automobilism, and dirigible balloons. It is something very different. It is life devouring itself. It is the sensibility transformed into intelligence. It is the need to know stifling the need to live. It is the genius of knowledge vivisecting the vital genius.
    —Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)
