Proust: ‘Memories Fade . Some’ | Remembrance of Things Past #130

MEMORIES FADE . SOME

“I was not unhappy, except one day at a time.”

“A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves.”

“Every person is destroyed when we cease to see him; after which his next appearance is a new creation, different from that which immediately preceded it, if not from them all.” 

“A woman whom we need and who makes us suffer elicits from us a whole gamut of feelings far more profound and vital than a man of genius who interests us.” 

“And then, gradually, the memory of her would fade away, I had forgotten the girl of my dream.”
― Marcel Proust
