Picture of Jean Cocteau.

Three quotes by Jean Cocteau

Jean Maurice Eugène Clément Cocteau (5 July 1889 – 11 October 1963) was a French poet, novelist, dramatist, designer, boxing manager, playwright, artist and filmmaker. Along with other avant-garde artists of his generation (Jean Anouilh and René Char for example) Cocteau grappled with the 'algebra' of verbal codes old and new, mise en scène language and technologies of modernism to create a paradox: a classical avant-garde. His circle of associates, friends and lovers included Pablo Picasso, Jean Hugo, Jean Marais, Henri Bernstein, Édith Piaf, whom he cast in one of his one-act plays entitled Le Bel Indifferent in 1940, and Raymond Radiguet.
 I know that poetry is indispensable, but to what I could not say. 
 Tact consists in knowing how far to go too far. 
 We must believe in luck. For how else can we explain the success of those we don't like?
