Dear Shaded Viewers,
I'm writing a piece on My Name is Claude for ZOO Magazine and inspired by something he said I came across a few quotes from Gide that I thought you might enjoy.
"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not."
"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better."
"There are admirable potentialities in every human being. Believe in your strength and your youth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, 'It all depends on me.'
"Work and struggle and never accept an evil that you can change."
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again."
