Remembrance: Marcel Proust – Part 17

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

Marcel-Proust

“The places we have known
do not belong solely
to the world of space
in which we situate them
for our greater convenience.
They were only a thin slice
among contiguous impressions
which formed our life
at that time;
the memory of a certain image
is but regret for a certain moment;
and houses, roads, avenues
are as fleeting, alas,
as the years.”

― Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way
