Marcel Proust

Marcel Proust

French writer
I understood that all the material of a literary work was in my past life, I understood that I had acquired it in the midst of frivolous amusements, in idleness, in tenderness and in pain, stored up by me without my divining its destination or even its survival, as the seed has in reserve all the ingredients which will nourish the plant.More Marcel Proust quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We think and name in one world, we live and feel in another.More Marcel Proust quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At that time, he was satisfying a sensual curiosity by experiencing the pleasures of people who live for love. He had believed he could stop there, that he would not be obliged to learn their sorrows; how small a thing her charm was for him now compared with the astounding terror that extended out from it like a murky halo, the immense anguish of not knowing at every moment what she had been doing, of not possessing her everywhere and always!More Marcel Proust quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No doubt very few people understand the purely subjective nature of the phenomenon that we call love, or how it creates, so to speak, a supplementary person, distinct from the person whom the world knows by the same name, a person most of whose constituent elements are derived from ourselves.More Marcel Proust quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How paradoxical it is to search reality for the pictures that are stored in one's memory.More Marcel Proust quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
