Marcel Proust
quotations & quotes

  Here are some delightful and wise quotations from the works of Marcel Proust :-


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

 

All our final decisions are made in a state of mind that is not going to last.

 

The features of our face are hardly more than gestures which force of habit made permanent. Nature, like the destruction of Pompeii, like the metamorphosis of a nymph into a tree, has arrested us in an accustomed movement.

 

The one thing more difficult than following a regimen is not imposing it on others.

 

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