Proust: Desire Blossoms | Remembrance of Things Pass # 176

DESIRE BLOSSOMS

“We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.”

“Desire makes everything blossom; possession makes everything wither and fade. ”

“There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we believe we left without having lived them, those we spent with a favorite book.”

“Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have of them.”
― Marcel Proust
