Proust: ‘Fleeting Years’ | Remembrance of Things Pass #185

FLEETING YEARS

“The places we have known do not belong solely to the world of space in which we situate them for our greater convenience. They were only a thin slice among contiguous impressions which formed our life at that time; the memory of a certain image is but regret for a certain moment; and houses, roads, avenues are as fleeting, alas, as the years.” ― Marcel Proust
