Daily Dose

From The Past Recaptured, by Marcel Proust, translated by Frederick a. Blossom


"I reflected that dreams would sometimes in this way bring nearer to me truths or impressions which would not come through my own unaided effort or even through natural contingencies, and that they would awaken in me a desire, a longing for certain non-existent things, which is the prerequisite condition for creative work, for getting out of the rut of habit and getting away from the concrete."

From page 246, this edition
