Le temps dont nous disposons chaque jour est élastique ; les passions que nous ressentons le dilatent, celles que nous inspirons le rétrécissent et l'habitude le remplit.”
Marcel Proust

Die Zeit, die wir jeden Tag zur Verfügung haben, ist elastisch; die Leidenschaften, die wir fühlen, dehnen sie aus, die, die wir erregen, ziehen sie zusammen; und Gewohnheit füllt den Rest aus.”
Marcel Proust
