• The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes

    Marcel Proust
  • Every reader, as he reads, is actually the reader of himself. The writer's work is only a kind of optical instrument he provides the reader so he can discern what he might never have seen in himself without this book. The reader's recognition in himself of what the book says is the proof of the book's truth

    Marcel Proust
  • We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us

    Marcel Proust
  • Love is a striking example of how little reality means to us

    Marcel Proust
  • People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura oflife which bears no relation to true immortality but through which theycontinue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. Itis as though they were traveling abroad

    Marcel Proust
