Quotes by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return."

"Love is when the desire to be desired takes you so badly that you feel you could die of it"

"Everywhere and always ugliness has its beautiful aspects; it is thrilling to discover them where nobody else has noticed them."

"All confined things die."

"I am alone all day, I read a little but it gives me a headache. I draw and I paint, as much as I can, so much so that my hand gets tired and when it begins to get dark I wait to see if Jeanne d'Armagnac [one of the cousins] will come and sit by my bed. She comes sometimes and tries to distract me and play with me, and I listen to her speak without daring to look at her, she is so tall and so beautiful! And I am neither tall nor beautiful."
