Proust: Memories Through the Pain | Remembrance of Things Pass #153

MEMORIES THROUGH THE PAIN

“Your real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but having new eyes.”

“For with the perturbations of memory are linked the intermittencies of the heart.”

“I felt that I did not really remember her except through the pain, and I longed for the nails that riveted her to my consciousness to be driven yet deeper.”

“We ought never to lose our tempers with people who, when we find them at fault, begin to [giggle]. They do so not because they are laughing at us, but because they are afraid of our displeasure.”
― Marcel Proust
