Marcel Proust was a French novelist and essayist. He was born on this day, July 10 in the year 1871 and died in 1922. Here are some of his words to motivate us.
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls bloom.”
“Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.”
“People don’t know when they are happy. They’re never so unhappy as they think they are.”
“Desire makes everything blossom; possession makes everything wither and fade.”
“We must not be afraid to go too far; For truth lies beyond.”
“We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.”
“We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.”
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
“Do not wait for life. Do not long for it. Be aware, always and at every moment, that the miracle is in the here and now.”
