“I am mastering my love for you and turning it inwards as a constituent element of myself.”

—   Sartre. An excerpt from a love letter to Simone de Beauvoir. (via allvessels)

“Le lendemain, les yeux fermés, il m’a pris le poignet et m’a dit : “Je vous aime beaucoup, mon petit Castor.” Le 14 avril, quand je suis venue, il dormait ; il s’est réveillé et m’a dit quelques mots, sans ouvrir les yeux ; puis il m’a tendu la bouche. J’ai embrassé sa bouche, sa joue.”

—   Simone de Beauvoir, La Cérémonie des Adieux. (via sandbeauvoirlgbt)

“This mixture of freshness and artifice, those heavy, painted lips half-open over dazzlingly youthful teeth, the smiling eyes of a sixteen-year-old behind long mascaraed lashes, seems quite attractive to me”

—   Simone de Beauvoir on Vassar students, 1947 (via le-tourbillion)

“The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project” 
Simone de Beauvoir

Claude Lanzmann: the man who stood witness for the world
He lived a remarkable life: a French resistance fighter, a friend of Jean-Paul Sartre and lover of Simone de Beauvoir. Yet he is best known for his epic film, Shoah, the definitive oral record of those who survived the Holocaust. Now, aged 87, he tells his own extraordinary story.
