Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #76

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

OUR BELIEFS

“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
