Proust: Powers of the Mind | Remembrance of Things Pass # 172

POWERS OF THE MIND

“Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.”

“Let us leave pretty women to men with no imagination.”

“Love is a striking example of how little reality means to us.”

“We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.” ― Marcel Proust
