Remembrance: Marcel Proust #47

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“These dreams reminded me that,
since I wished someday
to become a writer,
it was high time
to decide what sort of books
I was going to write.
But as soon as I asked myself the question,
and tried to discover some subject
to which I could impart
a philosophical significance
of infinite value,
my mind would stop
like a clock,
my consciousness
would be faced with a blank,
I would feel either
that I was wholly devoid of talent
or perhaps that some malady
of the brain was hindering
its development.”
― Marcel Proust
