Quotes by Jean Cocteau
"The actual tragedies of life bear no relation to one's preconceived ideas. In the event, one is always bewildered by their simplicity, their grandeur of design, and by that element of the bizarre which seems inherent in them."Jean Cocteau
"Mystery has its own mysteries, and there are gods above gods. We have ours, they have theirs. That is what's known as infinity."Jean Cocteau
"Man seeks to escape himself in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal. Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw into himself, he disguises himself. Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort."Jean Cocteau
"Film will only became an art when its materials are as inexpensive as pencil and paper."Jean Cocteau
"The day of my birth, my death began its walk. It is walking toward me, without hurrying."Jean Cocteau
