“The inertia of the mind urges it to slide down the easy slope of imagination, rather than to climb the steep slope of introspection.” ― Marcel Proust

“It is always during a passing state of mind that we make lasting resolutions.” ― Marcel Proust

“In a separation it is the one who is not really in love who says the more tender things.” ― Marcel Proust

“In my cowardice I became at once a man, and did what all we grown men do when face to face with suffering and injustice; I preferred not to see them” ― Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way
