 Time is elastic.   Passion expands it, inspiration contracts it, and habit fills up the rest. 

Taking a meeting with yourself should be taken as or more seriously than meetings with others.

We live not alone, but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible t make ourselves understood:  our body. 


 (i'm getting pretty distracted by how wealthy the narrator is in swann's way.  the whole thing is that he's  relishing and appreciating every little detail of his life and taking time to notice and observe all the 'little' things.  but the little things are weekends at the country house and picnics catered by servants and social gatherings with all of Combrays' most high falootin' influential people.   like.   hopefully anyone in your tremendously privileged position would appreciate all the immense luxuries of daily life.  long book.)
