Just one quote by Paul Valéry

Ambroise-Paul-Toussaint-Jules Valéry (October 30, 1871 – July 20, 1945) was a French poet, essayist, and philosopher. His interests were sufficiently broad that he can be classified as a polymath. In addition to his poetry and fiction (drama and dialogues), he also wrote many essays and aphorisms on art, history, letters, music, and current events.
 God made everything out of nothing, but the nothingness shows through. 
Dieu a tout fait de rien. Mais le rien perce.
