We ought at least, from prudence, never to speak of ourselves, because that is a subject on which we may be sure that other people's views are never in accordance with our own. - Marcel Proust (In Search of Lost Time Quotes)

We ought at least, from prudence, never to speak of ourselves, because that is a subject on which we may be sure that other people’s views are never in accordance with our own.[On devrait, au moins, par prudence, ne jamais parler de soi, parce que c’est un sujet où on peut être sûr que la vue des autres et la nôtre propre ne concordent jamais.]
