Best Quotes by Arthur Rimbaud (Top 10)

  1. Genius is the recovery of childhood at will.
  2. I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.
  3. A thousand Dreams within me softly burn
  4. I believe that I am in hell, therefore I am there.
  5. But, truly, I have wept too much! The Dawns are heartbreaking. Every moon is atrocious and every sun bitter.
  6. True alchemy lies in this formula: ‘Your memory and your senses are but the nourishment of your creative impulse’.
  7. I understand, and not knowing how to express myself without pagan words, I’d rather remain silent
  8. Life is the farce which everyone has to perform.
  9. Idle youth, enslaved to everything; by being too sensitive I have wasted my life.
  10. The poet, therefore, is truly the thief of fire. He is responsible for humanity, for animals even; he will have to make sure his visions can be smelled, fondled, listened to; if what he brings back from beyond has form, he gives it form; if it has none, he gives it none. A language must be found…of the soul, for the soul and will include everything: perfumes, sounds colors, thought grappling with thought
