Do you know what quotes are etched into the walls of the Dalí Museum in Figueres?

I was in the Dalí Museum in Figueres, Catalonia two weeks ago. There was a prominently displayed quote, not by Dalí, that I wanted to look up, but completely forgot about until now. It was familiar, but it seemed a bit mangled from what I thought it was. Now, however, I've forgotten it. Do you know what quotes are etched into the walls of the Dalí Museum in Figueres?

I think it was a Sartre quote, but it could've been Camus or Genet or some other mid-century French writer.

I think it was in French, but it could've been Latin or Spanish.

I saw the quote in a long, wide room filled with Dalí paintings, and it was etched in the wall above one of them.

I'm stumped, I've googled in Spanish and Catala, no result. Plus I can even load the virtual tour I linked to...sigh... sorry!

Response by poster: Yeah, I looked at the most likely rooms in the virtual tour, but didn't spot it. When I have time, I'll go over the whole thing with a fine-toothed brush. Thanks, Wilder!

If I get really desperate, I'll call the museum =)
