Dali quote re camembert
From the wikipedia page http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Persistence_of_Memory
"Surprisingly, Dalí said that his soft watches were not inspired by the theory of relativity, but by the surrealists perception of a Camembert cheese melting in the sun. The painter insisted on this explanation in his reply letter to Prigogine, who took it as Dalí's reaction to Einstein's coldly mathematical theory."
