Remembrance: Marcel Proust #75

Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #75

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


“Having a body
is in itself
the greatest threat
to the mind…
The body encloses the mind
in a fortress;
before long
the mind is besieged
on all sides,
and in the end
the mind has to
give itself up.”

― Marcel Proust

“But when one believes
in the reality of things,
making them visible
by artificial means
is not quite the same
as feeling that
they are close at hand.”

― Marcel Proust

“The bonds
that unite
another person
to our self
exist only
in our mind.”

― Marcel Proust

“Our shadows,
now parallel,
now close together
and joined,
an exquisite pattern
at our feet.”

― Marcel Proust

“We must never
be afraid
to go too far,
for truth
lies beyond.”

― Marcel Proust
