Remembrance: Marcel Proust #27

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“I was left alone there
in the company of the orchids,
roses and violets, which,
like people waiting beside you
who do not know you,
preserved a silence
which their individuality
as living things
made all the more striking,
and warmed themselves
in the heat
of a glowing coal fire…”

― Marcel Proust, Within a Budding Grove
