"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better." ~ André Gide

"Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself - and thus make yourself indispensable." ~ André Gide

"Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it." ~ André Gide

"Dare to be yourself." ~ André Gide

"There are admirable potentialities in every human being. Believe in your strength and your youth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, 'It all depends on me." ~ André Gide

"Work and struggle and never accept an evil that you can change." ~ André Gide

"Know thyself? A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever observes himself arrests his own development. A caterpillar who wanted to know itself well would never become a butterfly." ~ André Gide
