Quotes from Proust VI: Life in its changing course makes realities of our fables.

One understands at once this language of passion, even the most uneducated can understand those remarks which can be explained only by vanity, rancour, jealousy, unexpressed as it happens, but detectable at once by the interlocutor through an intuitive faculty which, like the “good sense of which Descartes speaks, is “the most evenly distributed thing in the world.”

All love, and everything else in life, evolves rapidly towards a farewell.

I felt that I was in control of the future but I did not quite believe it because I realised that this feeling was due merely to the fact that the future did not yet exist, and that thus I was not crushed by its inevitability.

Life in its changing course makes realities of our fables.
