Famous quotes containing the word delacroix:

    A taste for simplicity cannot endure for long.
    —Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)

    I live in company with a body, a silent companion, exacting and eternal. He it is who notes that individuality which is the seal of the weakness of our race. My soul has wings, but the brutal jailer is strict.
    —Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)

    If one considered life as a simple loan, one would perhaps be less exacting. We possess actually nothing; everything goes through us.
    —Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)
