Quote Bullet

Life is extraordinarily suave and sweet with certain natural, witty, affectionate people who have unusual distinction and are capable of every vice, but who make a display of none in public and about whom no one can affirm they have a single one. There is something supple and secret about them. Besides, their perversity gives spice to their most innocent occupations, such as taking a walk in the garden at night.
~ Marcel Proust - [Vice]

Quote Bullet

Our intellect is not the most subtle, the most powerful, the most appropriate, instrument for revealing the truth. It is life that, little by little, example by example, permits us to see that what is most important to our heart, or to our mind, is learned not by reasoning but through other agencies. Then it is that the intellect, observing their superiority, abdicates its control to them upon reasoned grounds and agrees to become their collaborator and lackey.
~ Marcel Proust - [Intelligence and Intellectuals]

Quote Bullet

People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the comma bacillus.
~ Marcel Proust - [Love]

In a separation it is the one who is not really in loved who says the more tender things.
~ Marcel Proust - [Love Ended]

Quote Bullet

Our memory is like a shop in the window of which is exposed now one, now another photograph of the same person. And as a rule the most recent exhibit remains for some time the only one to be seen.
~ Marcel Proust - [Memory]

That translucent alabaster of our memories.
~ Marcel Proust - [Memory]

Quote Bullet

We are able to find everything in our memory, which is like a dispensary or chemical laboratory in which chance steers our hand sometimes to a soothing drug and sometimes to a dangerous poison.
~ Marcel Proust - [Memory]
