Madeleine Quotes

(Madeleine: a small, rich shell shaped cake)

"I raised to my lips a spoonful of the cake . . . a shudder ran through my whole body and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary changes that were taking place."

Marcel Proust (1871-1922)
‘Remembrance of Things Past’


"...presently my aunt would dip a little madeleine in the boiling infusion, whose taste of dead leaves or faded blossom she so relished, and hand me a piece when it was sufficiently soft."

Marcel Proust (1871-1922)
‘Du cote de chez Swann’ (1913)


"The sight of the little madeleine had recalled nothing to my mind before I tasted it...." but " soon as I had recognized the taste of the piece of madeleine soaked in her decoction of lime-blossom which my aunt used to give me .... immediately the old grey house upon the street, where her room was, rose up like a stage set to attach itself to the little pavilion opening on to the garden which had been built out behind it for my parents."

Marcel Proust (1871-1922)
‘Remembrance of Things Past’
