Remembrance: Marcel Proust #70

Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #70

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

UNKNOWN WITHIN US

“Our vanity,
our passions,
our spirit of imitation,
our abstract intelligence,
our habits
have long been at work,
and it is the task of art
to undo this work of theirs,
making us travel back
in the direction
from which we have come
to the depths
where what has really existed
lies unknown within us.”

― Marcel Proust
