Proust: Unerringly Grasping Choice | Remembrance of Things Pass #163

UNERRINGLY GRASPING CHOICE

“Why, when we regain consciousness, is it not an identity other than the one we had previously that is embodied in us? It is not clear what dictates the choice nor why, among the millions of human beings we might be, it is the being we were the day before that we unerringly grasp.” ― Marcel Proust
