Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not tolerate Reason.
Albert Camus

Other quotes by Albert Camus

We call first truths those we discover after all the others.

After all manner of professors have done their best for us, the place we are to get knowledge is in books. The true university of these days is a collection of books.

Those who write clearly have readers, those who write obscurely have commentators.

The need to be right is the sign of a vulgar mind.

An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself.
