Remembrance: Marcel Proust #45

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“When nothing else subsists from the past,
after the people are dead,
after the things are broken
and scattered…
the smell and taste of things
remain poised a long time,
like souls…
bearing resiliently,
on tiny and almost impalpable
drops of their essence,
the immense edifice of memory”

― Marcel Proust
