Remembrance: Marcel Proust #49

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“For although we know,
that the years pass,
that youth gives way to old age,
that fortunes and thrones crumble
(even the most solid among them)
and that fame is transitory,
the manner in which—by means
of a sort of snapshot—
we take cognisance
of this moving universe
whirled along by Time,
has the contrary effect
of immobilising it.”
― Marcel Proust
