Famous quotes containing the words marcel proust and/or proust:

    Besides, no matter how much I might speak to Gilberte, she would not hear me. We always believe that, when we speak, it is our ears, our mind that listen.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    It is up to my spirit to find the truth. But how? Grave uncertainty, each time the spirit feels beyond its own comprehension; when it, the explorer, is altogether to obscure land that it must search and where all its baggage is of no use. To search? That is not all: to create.
    —Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
