LIVED FULLY

We have such numerous interests in our lives that it is not uncommon, on a single occasion, for the foundations of a happiness that does not yet exist to be laid down alongside the intensification of a grief from which we are still suffering.” ― Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way

“The truth is that every morning war is declared afresh. And the men who wish to continue it are as guilty as the men who began it, more guilty perhaps, for the latter perhaps did not foresee all its horrors.” ― Marcel Proust

“For neither our greatest fears nor our greatest hopes are beyond the limits of our strength–we are able in the end both to dominate the first and to achieve the second.” ― Marcel Proust

“There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.” ― Marcel Proust
