Paul Valéry

***************

An oracle of
indifference, God never
finishes His work

***************

Two dangers threaten
the world: the man of sound mind
and the true madman

***************

Politeness is the
science of charm, abuse and
total massacre

***************

At times I think, and
at times I am—I feel like
a calculator

***************

The history of
literature may be summed
up in a word: war

***************

Poe is the dancer
of disorder, the fire of
dreams and misfortune

***************

Businessmen should be
under lock and key; it is
a poet’s judgment

***************
