Remembrance: Marcel Proust #28

…Truer words were never spoken:

the secret keeper

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

Marcel-Proust

“The bonds between ourselves
and another person
exists only in our minds.
Memory as it grows fainter
loosens them,
and notwithstanding
the illusion by which
we want to be duped
and which, out of love,
friendship, politeness,
deference, duty,
we dupe other people,
we exist alone.
Man is the creature
who cannot escape
from himself,
who knows other people
only in himself,
and when he asserts
the contrary,
he is lying.”

― Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time
