Quotes from Proust XXXI: A book is a huge cemetery in which on the majority of the tombs the names are effaced and can no longer be read.

A whole heap of verbal concepts and practical goals which we falsely call life.

It is only while we are suffering that we see certain things which at other times are hidden from us/

Real books should be the offspring not of daylight and casual talk but of darkness and silence.

A book is a huge cemetery in which on the majority of the tombs the names are effaced and can no longer be read.
