Paul Valéry
Quotations


Poe is the only impeccable writer. He was never mistaken.

Science means simply the aggregate of all the recipes that are always successful. All the rest is literature.

Science is feasible when the variables are few and can be enumerated; when their combinations are distinct and clear. We are tending toward the condition of science and aspiring to do it. The artist works out his own formulas; the interest of science lies in the art of making science.

A work is never completed except by some accident such as weariness, satisfaction, the need to deliver, or death: for, in relation to who or what is making it, it can only be one stage in a series of inner transformations.
