André Breton Sun in Pisces, Moon in Taurus, Ascendant in Libra, born February 19, 1896 in Tinchebray, Orne, France, French writer and poet, best known as the founder of Surrealism.

“The man who cannot visualize a horse galloping on a tomato is an idiot.”

“The important thing is that man is lost in time, in the moment that immediately precedes him – which only attests, by reflection, to the fact that he is lost in the moment that follows”

“What is admirable about the fantastic is that there is no longer anything fantastic: there is only the real.”

“Nothing that surrounds us is object, all is subject.”

“There has never been any forbidden fruit. Only temptation is divine. To feel the need to vary the object of this temptation, to replace it by others — this bears witness that one is about to be found unworthy, that one has already doubtless proved unworthy of innocence …”

“The mind, placed before any kind of difficulty, can find an ideal outlet in the absurd. Accommodation to the absurd readmits adults to the mysterious realm inhabited by children.”
