In Search of Lost Time - Marcel Proust

This quote was added by dustysnowy
We believe that we can change the things around us in accordance with our desires - we believe it because otherwise we can see no favorable outcome. We do not think of the outcome which generally comes to pass and is also favorable: we do not succeed in changing things in accordance with our desires, but gradually our desire changes. The situation that we hoped to change becomes unimportant to us.
