Marcel Proust Quotations

-When two people part, it is the one who is not in love who makes the tender speeches.

-The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in seeing through new eyes.

-A cathedral, a wave of storm, a dancer’s leap, never turn out to be as high as we had hoped.

-We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.

-We find a little of everything in our memory; it is a sort of pharmacy, a sort of clinical laboratory, in which our groping hand might come to rest, now on a sedative drug, now on a dangerous poison.

-The only paradise is paradise lost.

-Work while you still have the light.
Marcel Proust
