Favorite Quotations ~  George Sand Horace

"Art is not a study of positive reality, it is the seeking for ideal truth." ~ George Sand

George Sand

There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.

Believe in no other God than the one who insists on justice and equality among men.

Happiness lies in the consciousness we have of it.

I ask the support of no one, neither to kill someone for me, gather a bouquet, correct a proof, nor to go with me to the theater. I go there on my own, as a man, by choice; and when I want flowers, I go on foot, by myself, to the Alps.

Life in common among people who love each other is the ideal of happiness.

Man...is only too glad to have woman hold strictly to the Christian principle of suffering in silence.

One approaches the journey's end. But the end is a goal, not a catastrophe.

It is a mistake to regard age as a downhill grade toward dissolution. The reverse is true. As one grows older one climbs with surprising strides.

One is happy as a result of one's own efforts, once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness - simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and, above all, a clear conscience.

I am not full of virtues and noble qualities. I love. That is all. But I love strongly, exclusively, and steadfastly.

Life resembles a novel more often than novels resemble life.

Can one thus resume one's self? Can one know one's self? Is one ever somebody? I don't know anything about it any more. It now seems to me that one changes from day to day and that every few years one becomes a new being.
