"To give alms is nothing unless you give thought also."
John Ruskin
Marcel Proust Quotes
Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments. An artist recreates those aspects of reality which represent his fundamental view of man's nature.
Marcel Proust

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

Every reader finds himself. The writer's work is merely a kind of optical instrument that makes it possible for the reader to discern what, without this book, he would perhaps never have seen in himself.
Marcel Proust

In theory one is aware that the earth revolves, but in practice one does not perceive it, the ground upon which one treads seems not to move, and one can live undisturbed. So it is with Time in one's life.
Marcel Proust

It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body.
Marcel Proust

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Marcel Proust

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

Love is space and time measured by the heart.
Marcel Proust

People can have many different kinds of pleasure. The real one is that for which they will forsake the others.
Marcel Proust

People wish to learn to swim and at the same time to keep one foot on the ground.
Marcel Proust

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

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

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
