Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #74

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

THROUGH OUR IMAGINATION

“The heart changes,
and it is
our worst sorrow;
but we know it only
through reading,
through our imagination:
in reality
its alteration,
like that of
certain natural phenomena,
is so gradual
that,
even if we are able
to distinguish,
successively,
each of its
different states,
we are still spared
the actual sensation
of change.”

― Marcel Proust
