Quotes from Proust X: Time passes, and little by little everything that we have spoken in falsehood becomes true

Notwithstanding the illusion by which we want to be duped and with 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.

Time passes, and little by little everything that we have spoken in falsehood becomes true.
