Remembrance: Marcel Proust – Part 17

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“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
