"We passionately long that there may be another life in which we shall be similar to what we are here below. But we do not pause to reflect that, even without waiting for that other life, in this life, after a few years we are unfaithful to what we have been, to what we wished to remain immortally." Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time
This is the 6th book in the series and as you can see on the picture I read it in Russian. There is something hypnotic and meditative in Proust prose to me.
I can read him when I am tired, when I am sad or happy. Every time I open his books I'm fascinated by his metaphors, his vision that goes far beyond everyday life. .
Proust is not an author for every mood and sometimes you need to pick same book later. When you are ready for a very slow, dreamy work through his life, dreams and ideas.
