Quote of the Day – Marcel Proust on Life


Normally, I try to write what inspired me to pick the quote of the day. Today I have no witty reason. So here’s today’s quote. 🙂

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
