Proust: ‘Reading Insites’

“Remembrance of Things Past”
July 2nd 2017 . Part #105


“It may be that I might have inferred from the pages that life teaches us to diminish the value of what we read, and shows us that the things which the writer commends to us were never worth very much; yet I might equally well have come to the opposite conclusion, that reading teaches us to place a higher value on life, a value which we did not know how to appreciate, and the true extent of which we come to realize only through the book.” ― Marcel Proust
