For a long time, I went to bed early.

Pop quiz, answer number 5!

This one is easy: It was Marcel Proust. Some of you already knew that, didn’t you? Here is where I originally wrote about this sentence, a long time ago.

And since in that post I promised a recipe for Proust’s famous madeleines, you can find it here. See? Two wonderful passages for the price of one. (The recipe has a link to the “madeleine” passage of the novel, at the bottom. Don’t miss it!)

And that’s the end of our Quotation Pop Quiz! Tomorrow, something completely different…or back to the usual funny, startling, or otherwise interesting expressions. See you then!
