Quoted in "The Meaning of Life: Reflections in Words and Pictures on Why We Are Here," from Life Magazine (1991)
While traveling, I’ve found that spontaneity keeps things fresh, while serendipity guides me through it all. There have been a lot of rough moments along the way, but they often bear the best Memories.joseph pisani
Death must obliterate all Memories and affections and ideas and laws, or the awakening in the next world will be amid the welcomes, and loves and raptures of those who left us with tearful farewells, and with dying promises that they would wait to welcomes us when we should arrive. And so they do. Not sorrowfully, not anxiously, but lovingly, they wait to bid us welcome.randolph sinks foster
We wallow in nostalgia but manage to get it all wrong. True nostalgia is an ephemeral composition of disjointed Memories [...] but American-style nostalgia is about as ephemeral as copyrighted déjà vu.florence king
Now that we've lost Alan Shepard, I can't help feeling that something is wrong with this picture; astronauts aren't supposed to grow old and leave this Earth forever. In our Memories, they remain as Shepard was on that sunny Friday morning in May 1961, when he lay inside a tiny Mercury capsule ready to be hurled into space atop a Redstone booster.alan shepard
"So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it's gratifying to have something you have done linger in people's Memories." "There’s a very basic human, non-verbal aspect to our need to make music and use it as part of our human expression. It doesn’t have to do with body movements, it doesn't have to do with articulation of a language, but with something spiritual."john williams
Lately Marge's memory had grown weak, which is to say that it no longer contained the past time on deposit there, it was not strong enough to keep shut up the moments, the mornings and evenings, of her long life, its seals broke, and her Memories ran together mingling, indistinguishable from the present. Her memory had grown incontinent with age.john crowley
Our Memories are card-indexes consulted, and then put back in disorder byauthorities whom we do not control.
Fromthefirst place of liquid darkness, within thesecond place of air and light, I set down the following record with itsmixture of fact and truths and Memories oftruths and its direction always toward theThird Place, where the starting point is myth.Janet Paterson also known as Jean Paterson Frame Frame
As an analogy one can imagine an intelligent amoeba with a good memory. As time progresses the amoeba is constantly splitting, each time the resulting amoebas having the same Memories as the parent. Our amoeba hence does not have a life line, but a life tree.hugh everett
Your war Memories will be with you forever, you'll be asked about them thousands of times after the war is over. People will get their respect for you from that-partly from that, don't get me wrong-but if you can say that you were up front where there was some real shooting going on, then that will mean a whole lot to you in years to come.john knowles
We can grieve over lost powers and Memories, or rejoice over gained knowledge and maturity, according to taste.simon blackburn
She was the people's princess and that is how she will stay, how she will remain in our hearts and our Memories for ever.tony blair
... Memories that never ride anything but sound waves.henry s. haskins
I have lived with my conscience and my own Memories for over quarter of a century since the events of 1973.… These are not easy reflections for me. But I am at peace with myself, and with the Chilean people, about what happened. I am clear in my mind that the return to Chile of true democracy, and from that the true freedom to which all individual people are entitled, could not have been achieved without the removal of the Marxist government.augusto pinochet
Even in India there are but few places so rich in historical Memories as Patna. Beneath the soil watered by the blood of Mir Kasim’s victims, lie the ruins of the ancient Buddhist capital, Pataliputra, the greatness of which had been foretold by Buddha a few months before his death .
"You," your joys and your sorrows, your Memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules.
Things are revealed through the Memories we have of them. Remembering a thing means seeing it only then for the first time.cesare pavese
A land of promise, a land of memory, a land of promise flowing with the milk and honey of delicious Memories!
