Remembrance: Marcel Proust – Part 19

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“There is no man…
however wise,
who has not at some period
in his youth said things,
or lived a life,
the memory of which
is so unpleasant to him
that he would gladly expunge it.
And yet he ought not
entirely to regret it,
because he cannot be certain
that he has indeed
become a wise man…”
