Proust: Ageless Pool | Remembrance of Things Pass #165

AGELESS POOL

“For man is that ageless creature who has the faculty of becoming many years younger in a few seconds, and who, surrounded by the walls of the time through which he has lived, floats within them as in a pool the surface-level of which is constantly changing so as to bring him within range now of one epoch, now of another.” ― Marcel Proust
