„Music is a mysterious mathematical process whose elements are part of Infinity. … There is nothing more musical than a sunset.“

—  Claude Debussy
Context: Music is a mysterious mathematical process whose elements are part of Infinity. … There is nothing more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little — the book of Nature. As quoted in The Harvard Biographical Dictionary of Music (1996) by Don Michael Randel

„Works of art make rules but rules do not make works of art.“

—  Claude Debussy
As quoted in Companion to Contemporary Musical Thought (1992) by John Paynter, p. 590 Unsourced variant: Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.

„Art is the most beautiful deception of all!“

—  Claude Debussy
Context: Art is the most beautiful deception of all! And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory. … Let us not disillusion anyone by bringing too much reality into the dream. Unsourced variant: Art is the most beautiful of all lies.

„It is necessary to abandon yourself completely, and let the music do as it will with you.“

—  Claude Debussy
Context: It is necessary to abandon yourself completely, and let the music do as it will with you. All people come to music to seek oblivion. As quoted in The Cambridge Companion to Debussy (2003) by Simon Trezise, p. 120

„Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found.“

—  Claude Debussy
Context: Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found. Extreme complication is contrary to art. Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part. Quoted in French Music : From the Death of Berlioz to the Death of Fauré (1951) by Martin Cooper, p. 136, and in Debussy and Wagner (1979) by Robin Holloway, p. 207

„Collect impressions. Don’t be in a hurry to write them down.“

—  Claude Debussy
Context: Collect impressions. Don’t be in a hurry to write them down. Because that’s something music can do better than painting: it can centralise variations of colour and light within a single picture — a truth generally ignored, obvious as it is. Debussy in a letter to his pupil Raoul Bardac (1906)

„When I gaze at a sunset sky and spend hours contemplating its marvelous ever-changing beauty, an extraordinary emotion overwhelms me. Nature in all its vastness is truthfully reflected in my sincere though feeble soul.“

—  Claude Debussy
Context: I do not practise religion in accordance with the sacred rites. I have made mysterious Nature my religion. I do not believe that a man is any nearer to God for being clad in priestly garments, nor that one place in a town is better adapted to meditation than another. When I gaze at a sunset sky and spend hours contemplating its marvelous ever-changing beauty, an extraordinary emotion overwhelms me. Nature in all its vastness is truthfully reflected in my sincere though feeble soul. Around me are the trees stretching up their branches to the skies, the perfumed flowers gladdening the meadow, the gentle grass-carpetted earth, … and my hands unconsciously assume an attitude of adoration. … To feel the supreme and moving beauty of the spectacle to which Nature invites her ephemeral guests! … that is what I call prayer. As quoted in Claude Debussy: His Life and Works (1933) by Léon Vallas, p. 225 Variant translation: Before the passing sky, in long hours of contemplation of its magnificent and ever-changing beauty, I am seized by an incomparable emotion. The whole expanse of nature is reflected in my own sincere and feeble soul. Around me the branches of trees reach out toward the firmament, here are sweet-scented flowers smiling in the meadow, here the soft earth is carpeted with sweet herbs. … Nature invites its ephemeral and trembling travelers to experience these wonderful and disturbing spectacles — that is what I call prayer. As quoted in The Life of the Creative Spirit (2001) by H. Charles Romesburg, p. 240
