Labyrinth Quotes

They are like the clue in the labyrinth, or the compass in the night.

Joseph Joubert

No site in the forest is without significance, not a glade, not a thicket that does not provide analogies to the labyrinth of human thoughts. Who among those people with a cultivated spirit, or whose heart has been wounded, can walk in a forest without the forest speaking to him?... If one searched for the causes of that sensation, at once solemn, simple, gentle, mysterious, that seizes one, perhaps it would be found in the sublime and ingenious spectacle of all the creatures obeying their destinies, immutably docile.

Honore de Balzac†

Victor Hugo

Pierre Boulez
