Proust: ‘Sins Plummet . Winged Creatures Soar’ | Remembrance of Things Pass #149

SINS PLUMMET . WHILE WINGED CREATURES SOAR

“To such beings, such fugitive beings, their own nature and our anxiety fasten wings. And even when they are with us the look in their eyes seems to warn us that they are about to take flight. The proof of this beauty itself, that wings add is that often, for us, the same person is alternately winged and wingless. ” ― Marcel Proust
