  • Alfredo shared from How Proust Can Change Your Life (Vintage International) by Alain De Botton
    Such intimate communion between our own life and the novels we read may be why Proust argued: In reality, every reader is, while he is reading, the reader of his own self. The writer’s work is merely a kind of optical instrument which he offers to the reader to enable him to discern what, without this book, he would perhaps never have experienced in himself. And the recognition by the reader in his own self of what the book says is the proof of its veracity.
    Note: In reality, every reader is, while he is reading, the reader of his own self. M. Proust
