Man seeks to escape himself | Jean Cocteau

“Art is a marriage of the conscious and the unconscious.”

Jean Cocteau

"Man seeks to escape himself in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal.
Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw into himself, he disguises himself.
Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort..."

Jean Cocteau,
 Diary of an Unknown, 1953

< Jean Cocteau with Gun, 1926
