Marcel Proust Quote: “The sea thus enchants us like music, which, unlike language, never bears the traces of things, never tells us anything about human beings, but imitates the stirrings of the soul.”
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: “Habit is, of all the plants of human growth, the one that has the least need of nutritious soil in order to live, and is the first to appear on the most seemingly barren rock.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “In a separation it is the one who is not really in love who says the more tender things.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Like everybody who is not in love, he thought one chose the person to be loved after endless deliberations and on the basis of particular qualities or advantages.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Everybody calls “clear” those ideas which have the same degree of confusion as his own.”

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 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: “Les vrais paradis sont les paradis qu’on a perdus.”
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: “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: “In reality, every reader is, while reading, the reader of his own self.”

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. Always try to keep a patch of sky above your life, little boy,” he added, turning to me. “You have a soul in you of rare quality, an artist’s nature; never let it starve for lack of what it needs.”
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: “Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promise only; pain we obey.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “It is often hard to bear the tears that we ourselves have caused.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “We dream much of a paradise, or rather of a number of successive paradises, but each of them is, long before we die, a paradise lost, in which we should feel ourselves lost too.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “I have built, deep in my heart, a chapel filled with you.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “One must never miss an opportunity of quoting things by others which are always more interesting than those one thinks up oneself.”
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: “People don’t know when they are happy. They’re never so unhappy as they think they are.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Our desires cut across one another, and in this confused existence it is rare for happiness to coincide with the desire that clamoured for it.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Nature hardly seems capable of giving us any but quite short illnesses. But medicine has annexed to itself the art of prolonging them.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The universe is true for us all and dissimilar to each of us.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The character we exhibit in the latter half of our life need not necessarily be, though it often is, our original character, developed further, dried up, exaggerated, or diminished. It can be its exact opposite, like a suit worn inside out.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “No exile at the South Pole or on the summit of Mont Blanc separates us more effectively from others than the practice of a hidden vice.”

Marcel Proust Quote: “But sometimes the future is latent in us without our knowing it, and our supposedly lying words foreshadow an imminent reality.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “Le bonheur est dans l’amour un e tat anormal. In love, happiness is abnormal.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The world was not created once and for all time for each of us individually. There are added to it in the course of our life things of which we have never had any suspicion.”
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: “What a profound significance small things assume when the woman we love conceals them from us.”
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: “The best vaccine against anger is to watch others in its throes.”
Marcel Proust Quote: “The opinions which we hold of one another, our relations with friends and kinsfolk are in no sense permanent, save in appearance, but are as eternally fluid as the sea itself.”
