Days [ ) Disguise | Jean Cocteau, 1951

Jean Cocteau with Gun, 1926

“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, 1951
