Sophie Brzeska Quotes:

  • Sophie Brzeska: My book is about sleep; that thick oily substance. Under the surface you float; half dreaming, half waking. Hidden, you hope, yet the world comes though.

    Henri Gaudier: That was yesterday!

    Sophie Brzeska: Look! You said, and don't you dare tell me I'm wrong, that today's art cannot be made from anything except today!

    Henri Gaudier: Yes, I change. When I lie down at night it's as if I'm going to die. When I get up in the morning, I get up as if I'm going to live forever.

    Sophie Brzeska: And you expect me to fling myself into your arms for always? Hah! I know your sort, you'll be off in a week.

    Henri Gaudier: I will carry my love for you, no matter where my mind leads me.
