Our Body

Marcel Proust

"If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time. "

Freedom

Wisdom

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

Marcel Proust

“In his younger days a man dreams of possessing the heart of the woman whom he loves; later, the feeling that he possesses the heart of a woman may be enough to make him fall in love with her.”

Marcel Proust
