1. "Some other memories of the funeral have stuck in my mind. The old boy's face, for instance, when he caught up with us for the last time, just outside the village. His eyes were streaming with tears, of exhaustion or distress, or both together. But because of the wrinkles they couldn't flow down. They spread out, crisscrossed, and formed a smooth gloss on the old, worn face."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "And while you were paying attention to these things, you were momentarily delivered from daydreams, from memories, from anticiaptions, from silly notions - from all the symptoms of you.""Isn't tasting me?"..."I'd say it was halfway between me and not-me. Tasting is not-me doing something for the whole organism. And at the same time tasting is me being conscious of what's happening. And that's the point of our chewing-grace - to make the me more conscious of what the not-me is up to."
Author: Aldous Huxley
3. "I had not grieved for myself, for the child I had been. Somewhere along my journey, from childhood to womanhood, I conflated painful memories with my imagination. It was imagination that saved me as a child, and it was the act of beginning to write again that allowed me to see through my own lack of compassion for myself. It was there, on the page, that I began to find the child who had been lost to me - a child who desperately needed her dignity restored."
Author: Anna Camilleri

6. "…every mind is shaped by its own experiences and memories and knowledge, and what makes it unique is the grand total and extremely personal nature of the collection of all the data that have made it what it is. Each person possesses a mind with powers that are, whether great or small, always unique, powers that belong to them alone. This renders them capable of carrying out a feat, whether grandiose or banal, that only they could have carried out."
Author: César Aira
7. "I cannot decide whether it is an illness or a sin, the need to write things down and fix the flowing world in one rigid form. Bear believed writing dulled the spirit, stilled some holy breath. Smothered it. Words, when they've been captured and imprisoned on paper, become a barrier against the world, one best left unerected. Everything that happens is fluid, changeable. After they've passed, events are only as your memory makes them, and they shift shapes over time. Writing a thing down fixes it in place as surely as a rattlesnake skin stripped from the meat and stretched and tacked to a barn wall. Every bit as stationary, and every bit as false to the original thing. Flat and still and harmless. Bear recognized that all writing memorializes a momentary line of thought as if it were final. But I was always word-smitten."
Author: Charles Frazier
8. "Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints."
Author: Chief Seattle
9. "Eustasia Johannsen was ready. Anyone could see that. Everything about her ancient self gave evidence to it: Her skin, wrinkled and transparent... But mainly, it was her eyes. They were drawn into her face as if her memories occupied more of her sight than what was actually in front of her."
Author: Clare Vanderpool
10. "No, life cannot be understood flat on a page. It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an empty desert and whisper sonnets under his breath... We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting and the climax and resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it?" -Donald Miller,Through Painted Deserts"
Author: Donald Miller

13. "Deslumbrado y alterado por esa luz, pero también por ser únicamente el doctor Pasavento, quise creer que todo lo que me pasaba era, simple y llanamente, producto de una fuerte resaca. Porque si uno lo pensaba bien, ¿era verosímil que durante toda la noche un médico, sin duda monstruoso, probablemente un neuroquímico del cerebro, me hubiera implantado la memoria de doctor Pasavento?"Doctor Pasavento. Enrique Vila-Matas (Satán Vivo). p. 172."
Author: Enrique Vila Matas
14. "You are told a lot about your education, but some beautiful, sacred memory, preserved since childhood, is perhaps the best education of all. If a man carries many such memories into life with him, he is saved for the rest of his days. And even if only one good memory is left in our hearts, it may also be the instrument of our salvation one day."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
15. "Lo unico que me duele de morir es que no es de amor"
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
16. "Anyone who can read history with both hemispheres of the brain knows that a world comes to an end every instant--the waves of time leave washed up behind themselves only dry memories of a closed & petrified past--imperfect memory, itself already dying & autumnal. And every instant also gives birth to a world--despite the cavillings of philosophers & scientists whose bodies have grown numb--a present in which all impossibilities are renewed, where regret & premonition fade to nothing in one presential hologrammatical psychomantric gesture."
Author: Hakim Bey
17. "Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That's what part of it means to be alive. But inside our heads — at least that's where I imagine it — there's a little room where we store those memories. A room like the stacks in this library. And to understand the workings of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in a while, let fresh air in, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you'll live for ever in your own private library."
Author: Haruki Murakami
18. "We stood, holding each other's faces, memorising every last detail. I was deperate with my own need to capture this last, lingering moment, desperate to forget the horrible sink at the pit of my stomach telling me all this would be lost forever once they pulled the chip out. Please don't let me forget."
Author: Heather Anastasiu
19. "One day, I'll meet you again and that day not a single regret will be in my heart. No tears will flow down my cheek. No sad expression will take over. No hug will be tight. No kiss will be made. No memories will flash right before me. That day will be my day."
Author: HQLines.me
20. "I watched her for a long time, memorizing her shoulders, her long-legged gait. This was how girls left. They packed up their suitcases and walked away in high heels. They pretended they weren't crying, that it wasn't the worst day of their lives. That they didn't want their mothers to come running after them, begging their forgiveness, that they wouldn't have gone down on their knees and thanked god if they could stay."
Author: Janet Fitch
21. "From the first place of liquid darkness, within the second place of air and light, I set down the following record with its mixture of fact and truths and memories of truths and its direction toward the Third Place, where the starting point is myth."
Author: Janet Frame
22. "Our dreams must be stronger than our memories. We must be pulled by our dreams, rater than pushed by our memories."
Author: Jesse Jackson
23. "A manhã abria-se e a claridade já se via no ar, nas ruas e nas casas. Uma luz branda rompia o nevoeiro e caía sobre a vila adormecida. Almorim, àquela hora da manhã, à hora em que as coisas paradas nos olham, era só silêncio e descampado. Um silêncio de árvores, casas, muros de pedra e caminhos."
Author: Joaquim Mestre

"Away thou fondling motley humorist, Leave mee, and in this standing woodden chest, Consorted with these few bookes, let me lye In prison, and here be coffin'd, when I dye; Here are Gods conduits, grave Divines; and here Natures Secretary, the Philosopher; And jolly Statesmen, which teach how to tie The sinewes of a cities mistique bodie; Here gathering Chroniclers, and by them stand Giddie fantastique Poets of each land. Shall I leave all this constant company, And follow headlong, wild uncertaine thee?"
Author: John Donne

Sometimes... their song is cut short and ends too early. But that doesn't mean their music was any less sweet or that they left any less of an impression."
Author: Linda Kage
34. "And it is because they contain thus within themselves the hours of the past that human bodies have the power to hurt so terribly those who love them, because they contain the memories of so many joys and desires already effaced for them, but still cruel for the lover who contemplates and prolongs in the dimension of Time the beloved body of which he is jealous, so jealous that he may even wish for its destruction. For after death Time withdraws from the body, and the memories, so indifferent, grown so pale, are effaced in her who no longer exists, as they soon will be in the lover whom for a while they continue to torment but in whom before long they will perish, once the desire that owed their inspiration to a living body is no longer there to sustain them. Profound Albertine, whom I at once saw sleeping, and who was dead."
Author: Marcel Proust

36. "Batley insisted that no cult existed but the jury found him guilty of 35 offences including 11 rapes. three indecent assaults, causing prostitution for personal gain, causing a child to have sex and inciting a child to have sex. The three women, who got Egyptian Eye of Horus tattoos apparently to show their allegiance to their organisation, were found guilty of sex-related charges. Young boys and girls were procured by cult members to take part in sex sessions, the trial heard. The group preyed on vulnerable youngsters, impelling them to join with veiled death threats. Batley was accused of forcing a number of his victims into prostitution. (Morris 2011) There are, after all, no paedophile rings; there is no ritual abuse; recovered memories cannot he trusted; not all victimization claims are legitimate. (Pratt 2009: 70)"
Author: Michael Salter

Author: Miyuki Miyabe
38. "Sascha era un arco iris dentro de él, una fontana resplandeciente de una belleza tal, que Lucas se sintió bendecido por tener la posibilidad de verla. Por un instante sus mentes fueron una sola y vio cuán desesperada, salvaje e irracionalmente le amaba Sascha... lo suficiente como para romper su promesa, para elegir morir a fin de que él pu¬diera vivir.Sascha vio hasta qué punto la pantera la adoraba, que su corazón latía solo por ella y que la vida daría paso a la muerte después de que ella se hubiera ido.

Un amor tan intenso y abrasador que no tenía principio ni fin."

39. "Does it truly make a difference how I'm alive?" I asked him. But he didn't answer. I walked over to where Hayden stood, resting my hand on his. I looked at the photo he held before making my way along the wall. Every photo was of our family. The family that existed before the accident. The family that existed before I was struck by a car. I wasn't supposed to remember it, but I did. When they exported my memories and my life from my body, every trace of the accident was supposed to be erased. But it still remained. You can't erase death. That was what Hayden was trying to tell me. No matter how much he wanted to forget, he couldn't."
Author: Nicole Sobon
40. "Se il bambino vuole scalare una montagna, lasciatelo fare. Se vuole arrampicarsi su un albero, lasciatelo fare. Lasciatelo andare dovunque possa sperimentare l'avventura e la sua capacità di non cadere in preda alla paura. Anche se morisse qualche bambino ogni anno – scalando montagne o tuffandosi nei fiumi o arrampicandosi sugli alberi – non avrebbe alcuna importanza. Perché, se in una comunità tutti i bambini diventassero paurosi e mancassero della capacità di non cadere in preda alla paura, tutta quella comunità, sebbene sembri viva, in realtà sarebbe morta."
Author: Osho
41. "Leo cried, "Hold on! Let's have some manners here. Can I at least find out who has the honor of destroying me?""I am Cal!" the ox grunted.

"Sadly, my brother cannot say words with more than two syllables--""Pizza! Hockey! Destroy!" Cal offered."--which includes his own name," the love god finished."I am Cal," Cal repeated. "And this is Zethes! My brother!""Wow," Leo said. "That was almost three sentences, man! Way to go."Cal grunted, obviously pleased with himself."Stupid buffoon," his brother grumbled. "They make fun of you. But no matter. I am Zethes, which is short for Zethes. And the lady there--" He winked at piper, but the wink was more like a facial seizure. "She can call me anything she likes. Perhaps she would like to have dinner with a famous demigod before we must destroy you?"
Author: Rick Riordan

43. "- Lo que juramos ya no existe -dice el invitado muy serio, levantando su copa- Todos han muerto, todos han partido, todos han traicionado lo que juramos.

Both of us looked forward to some time and place that would be better. And both of us were here, now, in a grim, unhappy time where little was as we wanted it to be. We lived in our memories and in our hopes, enduring the present because we had no other choice, and because we loved the people who lived here with us."
Author: Susan Palwick

Author: Wilson Rawls

Author: Zechariah Barrett
