  • "Il n'y a rien dans ce monde qui n'ait un moment décisif"
    ("There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment")

    Cardinal de Retz

    I always thought the quote was a Cartier-Bresson original, but discovered today that he just reorganized thoughts from the 17th century and applied it to his own art. Now I like that quote even better.
