Camille Claudel Quotes

Sir Rodin convinced my parents to have me committed; they are all in Paris to arrange it.
 

When you left on Saturday, I felt a horrible void, I saw you everywhere, on the beach, in your room, in the garden: impossible for me to get used to the idea that you had left.
 

You find me at work; excuse the dust on my blouse. I sculpt my marble myself.
 

You know what black hatred women feel toward me as soon as they see me, until I return inside my shell, they use every possible weapon. As soon as a generous man tries to help me out, a woman is here to hold his arm and prevent him from acting.
 

You promised to take care of me and not to turn your back on me. How is it possible that you never wrote to me even once and you never came back to see me? Do you think that it is fun for me to spend months, even years, without any news, without any hope!
 

You see that it is not at all like Rodin... I share these only with you, don't show them.
