Daily Dose

From Marcel Proust on Art and Literature: 1896 - 1919, translated by Sylvia Townsend Warner


"But at least there is no vulgarity in Flaubert himself, for he understood that the writer's life is centered in his work, and that the remainder only exists 'to provide an illusion to describe.'"

From Sainte-Beuve and Balzac
