Paul Valéry Quotes: Anxious To Know Yet Only Too Happy To

Anxious To Know, Yet Only Too Happy To Ignore, We Seek In What Is, A Remedy For What Is Not; And In What Is Not A Relief From What Is. Now The Real, Now Illusion Is Our Refuge; And The Soul Has Finally No Other Resource But The True, Which Is Her Weapon
And Falsehood, Which Is Her Armor.
— Paul Valéry —
