quite independently of all these literary preoccupations and in no way
connected with them, suddenly a roof, a gleam of sunlight on a stone, the smell
of a path would make me stop still, to enjoy the special pleasure that each of
them gave me, and also because they appeared to be concealing, beyond what my
eyes could see, something which they invited me to come and take but which
despite all my efforts I never managed to discover. Since I felt that this something
was to be found in them, I would stand there motionless, looking, breathing,
endeavouring to penetrate with my mind beyond the thing seen or smelt. And if I
then had to hasten after my grandfather, to continue my walk, I would try to
recapture them by closing my eyes; I would concentrate on recalling exactly the
line of the roof, the colour of the stone, which, without my being able to
understand why, had seemed to me to be bursting, ready to open, to yield up to
me the secret treasure of which they were themselves no more than the lids.” – Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time, Vol. I: Swann’s
