On [:] Τhe souls of our actions | Paul Valery (1928)


 Précédés d’une petite lettre sur les mythes par Paul Valéry. Illustrations par George Barbier. Paris: Auguste Blaizot, 1928

“What would we be without the succor of what does not exist? (…) The myths are the souls of our actions  and of our loves. We may only act while moving towards a ghost. We may only love what we have created.”

Paul Valery, Petite lettre sur les mythes, 1928
