Marcel Proust Quote: “Les vrais paradis sont les paradis qu’on a perdus.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Like a blood-red sky that warns the passerby, “There is a fire over there,” certain blazing looks often reveal passions that they serve merely to reflect. They are flames in the mirror.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “We are all of us obliged, if we are to make reality endurable, to nurse a few little follies in ourselves.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Even in the most insignificant details of our daily life, none of us can be said to constitute a material whole, which is identical for everyone, and need only be turned up like a page in an account-book or the record of a will; our social personality is created by the thoughts of other people.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “I have every useless thing in the world in my house there. The only thing wanting is the necessary thing, a great patch of open sky like this.

Marcel Proust Quote: “Death is in truth an illness from which we recover.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “In reality, every reader, while he is reading, is the reader of his own self. The writer’s work is merely a kind of optical instrument, which he offers to the reader to permit him to discern what, without the book, he would perhaps never have seen in himself. The reader’s recognition in his own self of what the book says is the proof of its truth.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “All our final decisions are made in a state of mind that is not going to last.”

Marcel Proust Quote: “The great quality of true art is that it rediscovers, grasps and reveals to us that reality far from where we live, from which we get farther and farther away as the conventional knowledge we substitute for it becomes thicker and more impermeable.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “We pack the physical outline of the creature we see with all the ideas we have already formed about him, and in the complete picture of him we compose in our minds those ideas have certainly the principal place.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Everybody calls “clear” those ideas which have the same degree of confusion as his own.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “It is a mistake to speak of a bad choice in love, since, as soon as a choice exists, it can only be bad.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Only by art can we get outside ourselves, instead of seeing only one world, our own, we see it under multiple forms.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The best vaccine against anger is to watch others in its throes.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Your soul is a dark forest. But the trees are of a particular species, they are genealogical trees.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The anaesthetic effect of custom being destroyed, I would begin to think and to feel very melancholy things. The door-handle of my room, which was different to me from all the other doorhandles in the world, inasmuch as it seemed to open of its own accord and without my having to turn it, so unconscious had its manipulation become; lo and behold, it was now an astral body for Golo. And.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost and science can never regress.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “There is no man, however wise, who has not at some period of his youth said things, or lived in a way the consciousness of which is so unpleasant to him in later life that he would gladly, if he could, expunge it from his memory.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “We are ordinarily so indifferent to people that when we have invested one of them with the possibility of giving us joy, or suffering, it seems as if he must belong to some other universe, he is imbued with poetry.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “I have built, deep in my heart, a chapel filled with you.”

Marcel Proust Quote: “A picture’s beauty does not depend on the things portrayed in it.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Only through art can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Each reader reads only what is already within himself. The book is only a sort of optical instrument which the writer offers to the reader to enable the latter to discover in himself what he would not have found but for the aid of the book.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “We construct our lives for one person, and when at length it is ready to receive her that person does not come; presently she is dead to us, and we live on, prisoners within the walls which were intended only for her.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “We fall in love for a smile, a look, a shoulder. That is enough; then, in the long hours of hope or sorrow, we fabricate a person, we compose a character.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Ambition is more intoxicating than fame; desire makes all things blossom, possession wilts them; it is better to dream your life than to live it, even if living it means dreaming it, though both less mysteriously and less vividly, in a murky and sluggish dream, like the straggling dream in the feeble awareness of ruminant creatures.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “I felt myself still reliving a past which was no longer anything more than the history of another person;.”

Marcel Proust Quote: “Sometimes, too, just as Eve was created from a rib of Adam, so a woman would come into existence while I was sleeping, conceived from some strain in the position of my limbs. Formed by the appetite that I was on the point of gratifying, she it was, I imagined, who offered me that gratification. My body, conscious that its own warmth was permeating hers, would strive to become one with her, and I would awake.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The loss of a sense adds as much beauty to the world as its acquisition.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “When we are kept waiting, we suffer so keenly from the absence of the person for whom we are longing that we cannot endure the presence of anyone else.”
