Marcel Proust Quotes

  1. Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.
  2. Everything great in the world comes from neurotics.They alone have founded our religions and composed our masterpieces.
  3. Happiness serves hardly any other purpose than to make unhappiness possible.
  4. There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we believe we left without having lived them, those we spent with a favourite book.
  5. The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
  6. A language which we do not know is a fortress sealed.
  7. Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
  8. Every reader, as he reads, is actually the reader of himself.
  9. Truth is a point of view about things.
  10. Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.

Marcel Proust was a French novelist. He was the author of À la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past), a seven-volume novel based on his life told psychologically and allegorically. Proust’s Questionnaire is one of the best-known interviews used in the media today.
