Quote of the Day

True, (Marcel Proust's) magnificent, seven-volume novel enabled him to express himself and to bestow a gift of unusual generosity on his readers.  But for years he suffered physical torment because he could not afford to face up totally and consciously to the suffering inflicted on him by his overpowering, dominant, and demanding mother.

-- Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies, p. 69
