Why Proust?

I found this quote from an essay by Marcel Proust in Alain de Botton's How Proust Can Change Your Life.

"The reason why life may be judged to be trivial although at certain moments it seems to us so beautiful is that we form our judgement, ordinarily, not on the evidence of life itself but of those quite different images which preserve nothing of life - and therefore we judge it disparagingly."

The images we are confronted with today "preserve nothing of life." I want to exchange ideas directly about the evidence of life; ideas about intelligent films, good wine, challenging theater and, of course, books that make a difference.

Let's start.
