The Quote

It causes us suddenly to breathe a new air, an air which the poets have vainly tried to situate in paradise and which could induce so profound a sensation of renewal only if it had been breathed before, since the true paradises are the paradises that we have lost.

-Marcel Proust, Time Regained.
