About a search for how you can stop wasting your life and start to appreciate life and live fully.      source
Reading Swann's Way for the very first time was like living through a strange dream, a dream of a life so far from my own weird existence, and it was nothing short of magical. I fell in love with Proust over and over and over again, and was so swept away by his sweeping, beautiful narration that I decided I would someday become a writer. Nothing in the world seemed to me to be as beautiful as what Proust had accomplished with In Search of Lost Time: the ability to imprint a dream in the mind of the reader.      source
