Famous quotes by comte de:

    Throughout my life, I have seen narrow-shouldered men, without a single exception, committing innumerable stupid acts, brutalizing their fellows and perverting souls by all means. They call the motive for their actions fame.
    Isidore Ducasse, Comte de Lautréamont (1846–1870)

    Sleep is a reward for some, a punishment for others. For all, it is a sanction.
    Isidore Ducasse, Comte de Lautréamont (1846–70)

    Isidore Ducasse, Comte de Lautréamont (1846–1870)
