Page 35:

A work of art came to be looked upon, and so far rightly, as no longer the product of an activity shared by all men, but rather as a creation of a mind gifted in an extraordinary degree. A mind of this type has in this view merely to give free vent to its peculiar endowment, regarded as a specific natural power.

Pages 184-85:

The form of natural beauty in its abstraction is a form which is determinate and thus of limited range; in a further aspect of it it is focussed in a unity of abstract relation to itself. On closer inspection we shall, however, find that the external manifold controls this form of abstract beauty by reason of its own determinacy and unity. We must not, however, imply in these latter any immanent inwardness or
form of vital ideality, but regard them as purely material definitions and unity of the external medium. Forms of such a character are uniformity, symmetry, or conformity to rule, and finally harmony.

Page xxiii:
When death lowers the curtain between me and the world, it shall be found that my drama was divided into three acts.

From my early youth until 1800, I was a soldier and a traveller; from 1800 to 1811, under the Consulate and the Empire, my life was given to literature; from the Restoration to the present day, it has been devoted to politics.

Page 159:
No event, however wretched or hateful in itself, should be treated lightly when its circumstances are serious, or when it marks an epoch: what should have been seen in the capture of the Bastille (and what was not then seen) was, not the violent act of the emancipation of a people, but the emancipation itself which resulted from that act.

Its seems this was one of the favorites books of Samuel Beckett.

À qui dédier le récit de ce voyage, sinon à vous, cher Monsieur Charron, qui avez combiné, construit, animé, d’une vie merveilleuse, la merveilleuse automobile où je l’accomplis, sans fatigue et sans accrocs?

Cet hommage, je vous le dois, car je vous dois des joies multiples, des impressions neuves, tout un ordre de connaissances précieuses que les livres ne donnent pas, et des mois, des mois entiers de liberté totale, loin de mes petites affaires, de mes gros soucis, et loin de moi-même, au milieu de pays nouveaux ou mal connus, parmi des êtres si divers dont j’ai mieux compris, pour les avoir approchés de plus près, la force énorme et lente qui, malgré les discordes locales, malgré la résistance des intérêts, des appétits et des privilèges, et malgré eux-mêmes, les pousse invinciblement vers la grande unité humaine.

Page 47:
De Liszt sur Chopin.

« Quelque regretté qu’il soit et par tous les artistes et par tous ceux qui l’ont connu, il nous est permis de douter que le moment soit déjà venu où, apprécié à sa juste valeur, celui dont la perte nous
est si particulièrement sensible, occupera le haut rang que lui réserve probablement l’avenir. »

Page 88:
Les peintres qui ne sont pas coloristes font de l’enluminure et non de la peinture. La peinture proprement dite, à moins qu’on ne veuille faire un camaïeu, comporte l’idée de la couleur comme une des bases nécessaires, aussi bien que le clair-obscur, et la proportion et la perspective. La proportion s’applique à la sculpture comme à la peinture. La perspective détermine le contour; le clair-obscur donne la saillie par la disposition des ombres et des clairs mis en relation avec le fond; la couleur donne l’apparence de la vie, etc.

Page 397:
Les paysages du Titien, de Rembrandt, du Poussin, sont en général en harmonie avec leurs figures. Chez Rembrandt même—-et ceci est la perfection—-le fond et les figures ne font qu’un. L’intérêt est partout: vous ne divisez rien, comme dans une belle vue que vous offre la nature et où tout concourt à vous enchanter. Chez Watteau, les arbres sont de pratique: ce sont toujours les mêmes, et des arbres qui rappellent les décorations de théâtre plus que ceux des forêts. Un tableau de Watteau mis à côté d’un Ruysdael ou d’un Ostade perd beaucoup. Le factice saute aux yeux. Vous vous lassez vite de
la convention qu’ils présentent et vous ne pouvez vous détacher des Flamands.
