Remembrance: Marcel Proust – Part 20

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“Pleasures are like photographs:
in the presence of the person we love,
we take only negatives,
which we develop later,
at home,
when we have at our disposal
once more our inner dark room,
the door of which
it is strictly forbidden
to open while others are present.”

― Marcel Proust, In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower
