Remembrance: Marcel Proust #45

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

Marcel-Proust

“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
