My Proust Questionnaire


02_question.jpg

This is the Proust Questionnaire once regarded as a party game where guests would write their answers in a book. Today it is used by Vanity Fair as their final page to ask relevant individuals either featured in the magazine or otherwise to answer. Also there is a version that James Lipton uses in his interviews with movie stars on Inside the Actor’s Studio, on Bravo. I wanted to post it as a way of letting those who are curious get to know me a little better. I would love to have some of my more frequent visitors do it and whether you wish to answer in a comment or in a private email either way feel free to share, or just read and think about your answers.

Shakespeare the Philosopher.

  • It is a wise father that knows his own child.
  • That which in mean men we entitle patience Is pale cold cowardice in noble breasts.
  • Striving to better, oft we mar what’s well.
  • If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?
  • We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
