Literary Birthday - 1 July
Happy Birthday, George Sand, born 1 July 1804, died 8 June 1876
10 George Sand Quotes
Simplicity is the most difficult thing to secure in this world; it is the last limit of experience and the last effort of genius.
Life resembles a novel more often than novels resemble life.
Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
I regard as a mortal sin not only the lying of the senses in matters of love, but also the illusion which the senses seek to create where love is only partial. I say, I believe, that one must love with all of one’s being, or else live, come what may, a life of complete chastity.
It’s not the first time I’ve noticed how much more power words have than ideas, particularly in France.
The trade of authorship is a violent, and indestructible obsession.
Work is not man’s punishment. It is his reward and his strength and his pleasure.
The truth is too simple: one must always get there by a complicated route.
Life is a long ache which rarely sleeps and can never be cured.
George Sand was the pseudonym of Armandine-Aurore-Lucille Dudevant, née Dupin, a French Romantic writer, known primarily for her rustic novels. She also wrote plays and a series of memoirs. She is famous for her romance with Frédéric Chopin.
