Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#1. This compulsion to an activity without respite, without variety, without result was so cruel that one day, noticing a swelling over his stomach, he felt an actual joy in the idea that he had, perhaps, a tumor that would prove fatal, that he need not concern himself with anything further, since it was this malady that was going to govern his life, to make a plaything of him, until the not-distant end. If indeed, at his period, it often happened that, though without admitting it even to himself, he longed for death, it was in order to escape not so much from the keenness of his sufferings as from the monotony of his struggle. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Leonie Swann
#2. Cordelia was thinking how human beings can invent words, how they can line up their invented words side by side on paper. It was magic. #Quote by Leonie Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#3. And once the novelist has brought us to this state, in which, as in all purely mental states, every emotion is multiplied ten-fold, into which his book comes disturb us as might a dream, but a dream more lucid and more abiding than those that come to us in sleep, why then, for the space of an hour he sets free within us all the joys and sorrows in the world. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Thomas Burnett Swann
#4. There ought to be laughter in love. But there also ought to be wonder. #Quote by Thomas Burnett Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Don Swann II
#5. Seek comfort in the warmth of the morality of your choosing. Not in the depravity and fear of lost causes, in which you should turn away, before it sees you, as well.

- Plight, 2015 #Quote by Don Swann II
Weatherby Swann quotes by Joyce Swann
#6. Her mind returned to Dr. Chaturvedi's testimony. He had turned to Christianity because he had discovered that he was not special. He seemed happy enough, but was he really happy? Was Christianity just a club for people who had managed to lose their specialness? Was it a last resort for people when they realized that their dreams were not going to come true? Did they embrace Christianity because they could use their "faith" as an excuse for their failure? They could pretend that their Christian convictions were all that was standing between them and success, and they could declare that they would be on top of the world if they had not chosen to willingly give it all up to follow Jesus. #Quote by Joyce Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Thomas Burnett Swann
#7. It is always pleasant to divulge a secret under dramatic circumstances. #Quote by Thomas Burnett Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Alexandra Swann
#8. Kris," Leonard Scott looked at her from across the table, "we are hiring a group of people who will take part in helping the U.S. achieve the most radical change it has ever seen. This is not just change you can believe in, it's change you can touch and see and feel. We are ready to make you a part of this team, if you are ready to join us. #Quote by Alexandra Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Joyce Swann
#9. As James entered the El Paso city limits, he began thinking about lyrics to a song that would describe his journey. "I'm just cruise'n in my ride, with my posse by my side." Well, he didn't have anyone by his side - not even that dumb loser Grady, but that was hardly the point. This song would be his legacy, and he wanted to get it right. It would embody the contempt that he felt for society with all its rules and restrictions. It would make him into a folk hero. He would not pretend to die for any "cause." He would let the world know that he had preferred a watery death to an existence where he was bound by mindless regulations. #Quote by Joyce Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Alexandra Swann
#10. That's because both the job title and the job itself have never existed before. We used the term 'ground-breaking' to describe this position because that is exactly what it is." Leonard Scott leaned forward. "The current Administration is committed to solving the greatest problems of our time - climate change, sustainability, the deficit, the impending crisis stemming from shortfalls in Social Security and Medicare, healthcare, and the problems that our nation faces as a result of an aging population. We are implementing a plan that will address all of these issues and will revolutionize the way that this country looks at retirement. Rather than continuing on in a bankrupt, broken system that meets the needs of no one, we are going to introduce American seniors to a new way of life - a holistic community that will engage them like nothing ever has before. #Quote by Alexandra Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Leonie Swann
#11. A story always ends just when it comes to an end. Like a breath. #Quote by Leonie Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#12. [O]ften one listens and hears nothing, if it is a piece of music at all complicated to which one is listening for the first time. And yet when, later on, this sonata had been played over to me two or three times I found that I knew it quite well. And so it is not wrong to speak of hearing a thing for the first time. If one had indeed, as one supposes, received no impression from the first hearing, the second, the third would be equally 'first hearings' and there would be no reason why one should understand it any better after the tenth. Probably what is wanting, the first time, is not comprehension but memory. For our memory, compared to the complexity of the impressions which it has to face while we are listening, is infinitesimal, as brief as the memory of a man who in his sleep thinks of a thousand things and at once forgets them, or as that of a man in his second childhood who cannot recall, a minute afterwards, what one has just been saying to him. Of these multiple impressions our memory is not capable of furnishing us with an immediate picture. But that picture gradually takes shape, and, with regard to works which we have heard more than once, we are like the schoolboy who has read several times over before going to sleep a lesson which he supposed himself not to know, and finds that he can repeat it by heart next morning. It was only that I had not, until then, heard a note of the sonata, whereas Swann and his wife could make out a distinct phrase that was as far bey #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Don Swann II
#13. Pride will leave you with nothing more than what you began with, expectations not exceeding more than the failures you never accounted for. #Quote by Don Swann II
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#14. Recalling, some time later, what I had felt at the time, I distinguished the impression of having been held for a moment in her mouth, myself, naked, without any of the social attributes which belonged equally to her other playmates and, when she used my surname, to my parents, accessories of which her lips - by the effort she made, a little after her father's manner, to articulate the words to which she wished to give a special emphasis - had the air of stripping, of divesting me, like the skin from a fruit of which one can swallow only the pulp, while her glance, adapting itself to the same new degree of intimacy as her speech, fell on me also more directly and testified to the consciousness, the pleasure, even the gratitude that it felt by accompanying itself with a smile. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by J.K. Rowling
#15. Oh, shut up, Weatherby,' said Fred. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Weatherby Swann quotes by Alexandra Swann
#16. Be sure to volunteer to make your community a better place. We all win when everyone gives. #Quote by Alexandra Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Lynn Swann
#17. Now, I'm not here because I was that good. I'm here because of the people around me made me that good. #Quote by Lynn Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Leonie Swann
#18. The group was led by a very thin man whom the sheep didn't know. They looked hard at him. The leader of the flock is always important. #Quote by Leonie Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#19. Swann had, as he shook the Marquise's hand, seen her bosom from close to and from above, he plunged an attentive, serious, absorbed, almost anxious, gaze into the depths of her corsage, and his nostrils, intoxicated by the woman's perfume, quivered like a butterfly ready to go and settle on the half-glimpsed flower. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Bella Swann
#20. She lay there like a beautiful lace covered present for the troll with her sweet hands wrapped up in the red bow of Lilith's red silk thong. #Quote by Bella Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Virginia Woolf
#21. Proust so titillates my own desire for expression that I can hardly set out the sentence. Oh if I could write like that! I cry. And at the moment such is the astonishing vibration and saturation and intensification that he procures - there's something sexual in it - that I feel I can write like that, and seize my pen and then I can't write like that. Scarcely anyone so stimulates the nerves of language in me: it becomes an obsession. But I must return to Swann.


My great adventure is really Proust. Well - what remains to be written after that? I'm only in the first volume, and there are, I suppose, faults to be found, but I am in a state of amazement; as if a miracle were being done before my eyes. How, at last, has someone solidified what has always escaped - and made it too into this beautiful and perfectly enduring substance? One has to put the book down and gasp. The pleasure becomes physical - like sun and wine and grapes and perfect serenity and intense vitality combined.


Jacques Raverat...sent me a letter about Mrs Dalloway which gave me one of the happiest moments days of my life. I wonder if this time I have achieved something? Well, nothing anyhow compared with Proust, in whom I am embedded now. The thing about Proust is his combination of the utmost sensibility with the utmost tenacity. He searches out these butterfly shades to the last grain. He is as tough as catgut & as evanescent as a butterfly's bloom. And he will I suppose #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Weatherby Swann quotes by Bella Swann
#22. Perhaps, he thought, his Master would only amuse himself with the little pain slut for a little while and then give her back to his faithful servant as an eternal plaything. The ghost chuckled at the thought of what he would do to that little slut if he had all of eternity as he faded away into the undulating mirror and left sweet Angelica to her fate. #Quote by Bella Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Ingo Swann
#23. seems to have been somewhat glowing white (ionizing the atmosphere directly next to it), but was close enough to the lunar surface to cast its equally elongated shadow. (NASA photo No. 16-19238.) Even after the two Earthside superpowers did not return to the #Quote by Ingo Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Donna Tartt
#24. Even Proust - there's a famous passage where Odette opens the door with a cold, she's sulky, her hair is loose and undone, her skin is patchy, and Swann, who has never cared about her until that moment, falls in love with her because she looks like a Botticelli girl from a slightly damaged fresco. Which Proust himself only knew from a reproduction. He never saw the original, in the Sistine Chapel. But even so - the whole novel is in some ways about that moment. And the damage is part of the attraction, the painting's blotchy cheeks. Even through a copy Proust was able to re-dream that image, re-shape reality with it, pull something all his own from it into the world. Because - the line of beauty is the line of beauty. It doesn't matter if it's been through the Xerox machine a hundred times. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#25. But ever since, more than a year before, discovering to him many of the riches of his own soul, the love of music had, for a time at least, been born in him, Swann had regarded musical motifs as actual ideas, of another world, of another order, ideas veiled in shadow, unknown, impenetrable to the human mind, but none the less perfectly distinct from one another, unequal among themselves in value and significance. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Lynn Swann
#26. I took several years of dance lessons that included ballet, tap and jazz. They helped a great deal with body control, balance, a sense of rhythm, and timing. #Quote by Lynn Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by S. Andrew Swann
#27. The nature of consciousness is to define what it calls reality. It's all of your observations that combine to form what it is you think reality is. God plays dice with the universe, and you be the dice, man. #Quote by S. Andrew Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Joyce Swann
#28. The voice sounded calm and sweet, but for the first time James felt scared. "It must be bad," he thought. "If they're like sending for a priest or something they must think I'm gonna die."
Ten minutes later James' parents were standing over him and his mother was gently stroking his face. "Are you in pain, Jimmy?" she asked.
"Yes, I need something, but they won't give me anything."
James' dad tried to sound authoritative as he spoke, "You're just fine. They have to do a little surgery to repair your leg, but you're just fine, son. #Quote by Joyce Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#29. And yet, my dear Charles Swann, whom I used to know when I was still so young and you were nearing your grave, it is because he whom you must have regarded as a young idiot has made you the hero of one of his novels that people are beginning to speak of you again and that your name will perhaps live. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#30. But at the age, already a little disillusioned, which Swann was approaching, at which one knows how to content oneself with being in love for the pleasure of it without requiring too much reciprocity, this closeness of two hearts, if it is no longer, as it was in one's earliest youth, the goal toward which love necessarily tends, still remains linked to it by an association of ideas so strong that it may become the cause of love, if it occurs first. At an earlier time one dreamed of possessing the heart of the woman with whom one was in love; later, to feel that one possesses a woman's heart may be enough to make one fall in love with her. And so, at an age when it would seem, since what one seeks most of all in love is subjective pleasure, that the enjoyment of a woman's beauty should play the largest part in it, love may come into being - love of the most physical kind - without there having been, underlying it, any previous desire. At this time of life, one has already been wounded many times by love; it no longer evolves solely in accordance with its own unknown and inevitable laws, before our astonished and passive heart. We come to its aid, we distort it with memory, with suggestion. Recognizing one of its symptoms, we recall and revive the others. Since we know its song, engraved in us in its entirety, we do not need a woman to repeat the beginning of it - filled with the admiration that beauty inspires - in order to find out what comes after. And if she begins in the #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#31. Swann, with that almost arrogant charity of a man of the world who, amid the dissolution of all his own moral prejudices, finds in another's shame merely a reason for treating him with a friendly benevolence ... #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#32. These new words were heard by my love; they persuaded it that the next day would not be different from what all the other days had been; that Gilberte's feeling for me, already too old to be able to change, was indifference; that in my friendship with Gilberte, I was the only one who loved. "It's true," my love answered, "there's nothing more to be done with this friendship, it won't change." And so, the very next day (or waiting for a public holiday if there was one coming up soon, or an anniversary, or the New Year perhaps, one of those days which are not like the others, when time makes a fresh start by rejecting the heritage of the past, by not accepting the legacy of its sorrows) I would ask Gilberte to give up our old friendship and lay the foundations of a new one. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#33. For Swann was finding in things once more, since he had fallen in love, the charm that he had found when, in his adolescence, he had fancied himself an artist; with this difference, that what charm lay in them now was conferred by Odette alone. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Judith McNaught
#34. Good secretaries are always in demand. Sinco's personnel office will probably call you eventually and offer you a job."
"I doubt it," Lauren said with an irrepressible smile. "I'm afraid Mr. Weatherby, the personnel manager, doesn't think I'm very bright," she explained.
Nick's head jerked up, his gaze moving with frank, masculine appreciation over her vivid features. "Lauren, I think you're as bright as a shiny new penny. Weatherby must be blind."
"Of course he is!" she teased. "Or else he'd never wear a houndstooth jacket with a paisley tie."
Nick grinned. "Does he really? #Quote by Judith McNaught
Weatherby Swann quotes by Thomas Burnett Swann
#35. A man's love for a man is neither more nor less than a man's love for a woman, it is only different. #Quote by Thomas Burnett Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Lynn Swann
#36. If a player demonstrated that he is the best, and a team decides, even so, we don't want to pay him, as in any other business, he should be able to play elsewhere. #Quote by Lynn Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#37. It appeared that the deference which, on my grandmother's authority, we owed to Mme. de Villeparisis imposed on her the reciprocal obligation to do nothing that would render her less worthy of our regard, and that she had failed in her duty in becoming aware of Swann's existence and in allowing members of her family to associate with him. "How should she know Swann? A lady who, you always made out, was related to Marshal Mac-Mahon! #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Marcel Proust
#38. I loved her; I was sorry not to have had the time and the inspiration to insult her, to do her some injury, to force her to keep some memory of me. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Weatherby Swann quotes by Thomas Burnett Swann
#39. I knew that the tears of adults were wetter, saltier, and much, much sadder than those of a child #Quote by Thomas Burnett Swann
Weatherby Swann quotes by Joyce Swann
#40. You will become the person you choose to be. #Quote by Joyce Swann
