Famous quotes by marcel proust:

    Let us leave pretty women to men devoid of imagination.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    When we are in love, the sentiment is too great to be contained whole within us; it radiates out to our beloved, finds in her a surface which stops it, forces it to return to its point of departure, and it is this rebound of our own tenderness which we call the other’s affection and which charms us more than when it first went out because we do not see that it comes from us.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    For each illness that doctors cure with medicine, they provoke ten in healthy people by inoculating them with the virus that is a thousand times more powerful than any microbe: the idea that one is ill.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    To get through their days, nervous natures such as mine have various ‘speeds’ as do automobiles. There are uphill and difficult day which take an eternity to climb, and downhill days which can be quickly descended.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Everything great in the world comes from neurotics. They alone have founded our religions and composed our masterpieces.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
