Proust: Curiosity

“Remembrance of Things Past”
Feb 12th – Part #85

CURIOSITY

“At that time, he was satisfying a sensual curiosity by experiencing the pleasures of people who live for love. He had believed he could stop there, that he would not be obliged to learn their sorrows; how small a thing her charm was for him now compared with the astounding terror that extended out from it like a murky halo, the immense anguish of not knowing at every moment what she had been doing, of not possessing her everywhere and always!” ― Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way
