Remembrance: Marcel Proust #72

Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #72

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


when nothing subsists
of an old past,
after the death of people,
after the destruction of things,
but more enduring,
more immaterial,
more persistent,
more faithful,
smell and taste
still remain
for a long time,
like souls,
on the ruin
of all the rest,
without giving way,
on their almost
impalpable droplet,
the immense edifice
of memory.”

― Marcel Proust
