Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Charles Baudelaire Quotes

Charles Baudelaire

A breath of wind from the wings of madness.
Charles Baudelaire

A frenzied passion for art is a canker that devours everything else.
Charles Baudelaire

A sweetheart is a bottle of wine, a wife is a wine bottle.
Charles Baudelaire

Charles Baudelaire

Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.
Charles Baudelaire

For the merchant, even honesty is a financial speculation.
Charles Baudelaire

I am unable to understand how a man of honor could take a newspaper in his hands without a shudder of disgust.
Charles Baudelaire

I have cultivated my hysteria with delight and terror. Now I suffer continually from vertigo, and today, 23rd of January, 1862, I have received a singular warning, I have felt the wind of the wing of madness pass over me.
Charles Baudelaire

I love Wagner, but the music I prefer is that of a cat hung up by its tail outside a window and trying to stick to the panes of glass with its claws.
Charles Baudelaire

In order for the artist to have a world to express he must first be situated in this world, oppressed or oppressing, resigned or rebellious, a man among men.
Charles Baudelaire

Inspiration comes of working every day.
Charles Baudelaire

It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree.
Charles Baudelaire

It is unfortunately very true that, without leisure and money, love can be no more than an orgy of the common man. Instead of being a sudden impulse full of ardor and reverie, it becomes a distastefully utilitarian affair.
Charles Baudelaire

Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.
Charles Baudelaire

Nature... is nothing but the inner voice of self-interest.
Charles Baudelaire

Nothing can be done except little by little.
Charles Baudelaire

Our religion is itself profoundly sad - a religion of universal anguish, and one which, because of its very catholicity, grants full liberty to the individual and asks no better than to be celebrated in each man's own language - so long as he knows anguish and is a painter.
Charles Baudelaire

The cannon thunders... limbs fly in all directions... one can hear the groans of victims and the howling of those performing the sacrifice... it's Humanity in search of happiness.
Charles Baudelaire

The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.
Charles Baudelaire

The lover of life makes the whole world into his family, just as the lover of the fair sex creates his from all the lovely women he has found, from those that could be found, and those who are impossible to find.
Charles Baudelaire

The man who says his evening prayer is a captain posting his sentinels. He can sleep.
Charles Baudelaire

The pleasure we derive from the representation of the present is due, not only to the beauty it can be clothed in, but also to its essential quality of being the present.
Charles Baudelaire

The world only goes round by misunderstanding.
Charles Baudelaire

There are as many kinds of beauty as there are habitual ways of seeking happiness.
Charles Baudelaire

There are in every man, always, two simultaneous allegiances, one to God, the other to Satan. Invocation of God, or Spirituality, is a desire to climb higher; that of Satan, or animality, is delight in descent.
Charles Baudelaire

There is no more steely barb than that of the Infinite.
Charles Baudelaire

There is no such thing as a long piece of work, except one that you dare not start.
Charles Baudelaire

We are weighed down, every moment, by the conception and the sensation of Time. And there are but two means of escaping and forgetting this nightmare: pleasure and work. Pleasure consumes us. Work strengthens us. Let us choose.
Charles Baudelaire
