Remembrance: Marcel Proust #80

Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #80

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

ILLUSION OF UNITY

“For what we supposed
to be our love
or our jealousy
is never a single,
continuous
and
indivisible passion.

It is composed
of an infinity
of successive loves,
of different jealousies,
each of which is ephemeral,
although
by their uninterrupted
multiplicity
they give us
the impression
of continuity,
the illusion
of unity.”

― Marcel Proust
