Days [ ) Dreams | Marcel Proust, 1922


George Silk, Sandra Kunhardt pretending she is a doll, 1961

“When the mind has a tendency to dream, it is a mistake to keep dreams away from it, to ration its dreams. So long as you distract your mind from its dreams, it will not know them for what they are; you will always be being taken in by the appearance of things, because you will not have grasped their true nature. If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.”

Marcel Proust, Within A Budding Grove Vol. 2 of Remembrance of Things Past, 1922
