Андре́ Мальро́ — французский писатель, культуролог, герой Французского Сопротивления, идеолог Пятой республики, министр культуры в правительстве де Голля . На его работах «воспитывались» такие выдающиеся французские философы и писатели, как Альбер Камю и Жан Гренье.


„Каждый человек страдает потому, что мыслит. По сути, дух осмысливает человека лишь в вечности, и осознание жизни может вылиться лишь в депрессию. Нужно осмысливать жизнь не духом, но в опиумном дурмане.“

„Часто разница между успешным человеком и неудачником состоит не в способностях или уникальной идее, но в мужестве сделать ставку на свои идеи, взять на себя просчитанный риск и действовать.“


„В политике, как и в грамматике, ошибка, которую совершают все, провозглашается правилом.“

„Man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides.“

„What is Man? A miserable little pile of secrets.“

„The great mystery is not that we should have been thrown down here at random between the profusion of matter and that of the stars; it is that from our very prison we should draw, from our own selves, images powerful enough to deny our own nothingness.“

„I don't argue with my enemies; I explain to their children.“

„The attempt to force human beings to despise themselves is what I call hell.“


„Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk - and to act.“

„In a world in which everything is subject to the passing of time, art alone is both subject to time and yet victorious over it.“

„Be careful--with quotations, you can damn anything.“

„In literature, as in Life, one is often astonished by what is chosen by others.“


„... For that matter, men are perhaps indifferent to power.... What fascinates them in this idea, you see, is not real power, it's the illusion of being able to do exactly as they please. The king's power is the power to govern, isn't it? But man has no urge to govern--he has an urge to compel, as you said. To be more than a man, in a world of men. To escape man's fate, I was saying. Not powerful--all-powerful. The visionary disease, of which the will to power is only the intellectual justification, is the will to god-head--every man dreams of being god.“ Man's Fate

„The greatest mystery is not that we have been flung at random between the profusion of matter and of the stars, but that within this prison we can draw from ourselves images powerful enough to deny our nothingness.“

„An art book is a museum without walls.“

„I seek the crucial region of the soul where absolute Evil and fraternity clash.“
