Famous quotes containing the word goncourt:

    As a general truth, it is safe to say that any picture that produces a moral impression is a bad picture.
    —Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    One of the proud joys of the man of letters—if that man of letters is an artist—is to feel within himself the power to immortalize at will anything he chooses to immortalize. Insignificant though he may be, he is conscious of possessing a creative divinity. God creates lives; the man of imagination creates fictional lives which may make a profound and as it were more living impression on the world’s memory.
    —Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
    —Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)
