    Sources for quotes of Erwitt and Cartier-Bresson?

    A friend of mine is working on a book about photography and read some famous words from some famous photographers, but cannot find out where they said that.

    Maybe some of you know the origins of these quotes:

    1. Elliott Erwitt: „A picture should be looked at – not talked about.“

    2. Henri Cartier-Bresson: „Une bonne photo est une photo que l'on regarde plus d'une seconde.“ (A good photo is one that you look at for more than a second.)

    In fact my friend found the quotes there, but without a source or similar information where and when these sentences were said.

    For the Cartier Bresson quote, I'd suggest perhaps The Mind's Eye, which apparently contains all of his writings on photography.

    Mission impossible, I'm afraid.
    Anyway, why would that make any difference and why does it matter?

    If you quote it needs to be accurate and traceable, and have a reference.

    Otherwise it's invalid.

    I was thinking of some specific quotes & references in a photography book that are untraceable, totally unverifiable and so pure here-say

    So my remark was perhaps a little cynical
