Remembrance: Marcel Proust #27

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

Marcel-Proust

“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
