Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #63
Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

Beliefs Reside

“Facts do not find their way
into the world
in which our beliefs reside;
they did not produce our beliefs,
they do not destroy them;
they may inflict on them
the most constant refutations
without weakening them,
and an avalanche of afflictions
or ailments succeeding one another
without interruption
in a family will
not make it doubt
the goodness of its God
or the talent of its doctor.”

― Marcel Proust
