“أفي هذه اللّيالي التي لا قرار لها تنامُ وتُقيمُ مَنفاك
مليون طائرٍ ذهبيّ، أنتَ يا عنفوانَ المستقبل؟”
آرتور رامبو
“Weakness or strength: there you are, strength. You do not know where you are going, nor why you are going; enter anywhere, reply to anything. They will no more kill you than if you were a corpse.” In the morning I had a look so lost, a face so dead, that perhaps those whom I met did not see me.

In cities, suddenly, the mud seemed red and black like a mirror when the lamp moves about in the adjoining room, like a treasure in the forest! Good luck, I cried, and I saw a sea of flames and smoke in the sky; to the right, to the left all the riches of the world flaming like a billion thunder-bolts.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat
“Peut-on s'extasier dans la destruction, se rajeunir par la cruauté !”
Arthur Rimbaud, Illuminations
“Priests, professors, masters, you are wrong to turn me over to Justice. I have never belonged to this people. I have never been Christian. I am of the race that sang under torture. I do not understand your laws. I have no moral sense, I am a brute.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell
“Quick! Aren’t there other ways of living?− To sleep in the midst of wealth is impossible. Wealth has always been public property. Divine love alone offers the keys to science. I see that nature is only a spectacle of plenitude. Farewell chimeras, ideals, errors! The reasonable song of the angels rises up from therescue ship: it is divine love. − Two loves! I may die of earthly love, die of devotion. I have left behind me souls whose suffering will only increase at my going! You chose me from among the shipwrecked, but what about the friends I left behind? Save them!”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell
“Je dis qu'il faut être voyant, se faire voyant. Le poète se fait voyant par un long, immense et raisonné dérèglement de tous les sens.”
Rimbaud Arthur, Illuminations
“Yes, my eyes are closed to your light. I am a beast, a nigger. But I can be saved. You are sham niggers, you, maniacs, fiends, misers. Merchant, you are a nigger; Judge, you are a nigger; General, you are a nigger; Emperor, old itch, you are a nigger: you have drank of the untaxed liquor of Satan’s still.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat
“На седемнадесет човек е само млад.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Трима френски поети: Шарл Бодлер, Пол Верлен, Артюр Рембо
“როცა დავყევ დინებას უგრძნობელ მდინარეების,
მებორნეების ძალებით აღარ ვიყავ მართული”
არტურ რემბო
“Расчеты в сторону - и тогда неизбежно опускается небо; и визит воспоминаний и сеансы ритмов заполняют всю комнату, голову, разум.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Poésies / Une saison en enfer / Illuminations
“...есть больше оснований восхищаться людьми, чем презирать их.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Poésies / Une saison en enfer / Illuminations
“Delivered to oblivion...growing and flowering with incense and weeds to the sullen whine of nasty flies...I loved deserts, burned out orchards, faded boutiques...I dragged myself down stinking alleyways...General, if there's an old canon left, aim for the glass of splendid shops, into the living rooms...make the city eat its own dust.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell
“Мир шагает вперед! Почему бы ему не вращаться?”
Arthur Rimbaud, Poésies / Une saison en enfer / Illuminations
“What will happen to the world when you leave it? Nothing, in any case, will remain of what is now visible.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Illuminations
“The white men are landing. Cannons! Now we must be baptized, get dressed, and go to work. My heart has been stabbed by grace. Ah! I hadn't thought this would happen!”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat
“Estendi cordas de campanário a campanário; guirlandas de janela a janela; correntes de ouro de estrela a estrela, e danço.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Illuminations
“Hatırladığım kadarıyla, vaktiyle, hayatım bir şölendi, tüm gönüllerin açıldığı, tüm şarapların aktığı bir şölen.
Bir akşam, Güzelliği dizlerimin üstüne oturttum. -Ve onu çok acı buldum.- Ve sövdüm ona.
Adalete karşı önlem aldım.
Kaçtım uzaklara. Ey büyücüler, ey sefillik, ey kin, hazinem size emanet!
Kafamdaki tüm insani umutları yok etmeyi başardım. Her sevincin üstüne sıçradım bir vahşi hayvan gibi boğmaz için.
Yanıma cellatlar çağırdım, ölürken, tüfeklerinin dipçiklerini ısırayım diye. Belalar çağırdım, kumla, kanla beni boğsunlar diye. Mutsuzluk ilahım oldu. Çamura uzandım boylu boyuna. Cinayet havasıyla kurulandım. Ve nice oyunlar oynadım delicesine.
Ve ilkbahar getirdi bana budalalığın ürkütücü gülümsemesini.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell
“Hacía ya mucho tiempo que me vanagloriaba de poseer todos los paisajes posibles, y que se me antojaban irrisorias todas las celebridades de la pintura y de la poesía moderna.
Me gustaban las pinturas idiotas: adornos de puertas, decorados, telones de saltimbancos, emblemas, estampas populares; la literatura pasada de moda: latín de iglesia, libros eróticos ignorantes de la ortografía, novelas de nuestras abuelas, cuentos de hadas, libritos infantiles, viejas óperas, estribillos bobos, ritmos ingenuos.
Soñaba con cruzadas, viajes de exploración cuya crónica no nos ha llegado, repúblicas sin historia, guerras de religión sofocadas, revoluciones de costumbres, desplazamientos de razas y continentes: creía en todos los encantamientos.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Season in Hell Other Poems
“The Poet, therefore, is truly the thief of fire.”
Arthur Rimbaud, Rimbaud: Poems
“Kesän sinisinä iltoina kulkisin polkuja, vehnän raapimana, tallaisin hentoa ruohoa; mietteissäni tuntisin tuoreuden jaloissani. Antaisin tuulen huuhtoa hiuksiani. En puhuisi, en ajattelisi mitään: mutta loputon rakkaus kohoaisi sydämeeni, ja menisin kauas, kovin kauas niinkuin mustalainen, luontoon - onnellisena, kuin naisen kanssa.”
Arthur Rimbaud
“This lofty thought proves I dreamt it!”
Arthur Rimbaud
“O great Ariadne who pour out your tears
On the shore, as you see, out there on the waves,
The sail of Theseus flying white under the sun,
O sweet virgin child whom a night has broken,
Be silent!
-Sun and Flesh (Credo in Unam)”
Arthur Rimbaud
“La început a fost un anumit studiu.Aşterneam pe hârtie tăceri,nopţi,notam inexprimabilul.Fixam vârtejuri.”
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell
“I saw that all living things were doomed, to bliss: that's not living; it's just a way to waste what we have, a drain.”
Arthur Rimbaud
“And from then on I bathed in the Poem
Of the Sea, infused with stars and lactescent,
Devouring the green azure where, like a pale elated
Piece of flotsam, a pensive drowned figure sometimes sinks;

Where, suddenly dyeing the blueness, delirium
And slow rhythms under the streaking of daylight,
Stronger than alcohol, vaster than our lyres,
The bitter redness of love ferments!”
Rimbaud Arthur

“The world progresses! Why shouldn’t it turn as well?”
Arthur Rimbaud
“I believe I am in Hell, therefore I am”
Arthur Rimbaud
“A storm came chasing the sky away. And virgin sands
Drank all the water of the evening woods,
God's wind blew icicles into the ponds;
As I wept I saw gold,- and could not drink.

- Delirium II - Alchemy of the Word
Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat
“But today I would suggest you ponder these verses from Ecclesiastes: “And he would have seven flights of madness in his soul, who, having hung his clothes beneath the sun, would groan at the hour of rain,”
Arthur Rimbaud, I Promise to Be Good: The Letters of Arthur Rimbaud
“الأصواتُ المُستنيرةُ مَنفيَّةٌ...”
