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
Memories and possibilities are ever more hideous than realities.h. p. lovecraft
Memories are like flagstones, time and distance work upon them like drops of acid.
Autumn is desolation in the plot Of a thousand acres, where these Memories grow From the inexhaustible bodies that are not Dead, but feed the grass, row after rich row.
Wisdom comes through suffering.Trouble, with its Memories of pain,Drips in our hearts as we try to sleep,So men against their willLearn to practice moderation.Favours come to us from gods.Aeschylus
"I live cinema. I chose the cinema when I was very young, sixteen years old, and from then on my Memories virtually coincide with the history of the cinema ... I'm not a director with a personal style, I am simply cinema. I have grown up with and through cinema; everything that I've had in the way of education has been through the cinema; insofar as I'm interested in images, in books, in music, it's all due to the cinema."Michael Powell
The emphasis on flora, fauna, and beings makes the exhibit a most intriguing and artistic one for it brings forth those strange Memories and psychic feelings that mystify and fascinate all of us. (remark in 1957)william baziotes
She was a young person whose reveries never were in retrospect. For her past was no treasury of distinct Memories, all hoarded and classified, some brighter than others and more highly valued. All Memories were for her but as notes in one fused radiance that followed her and made more luminous the pathway of her future.max beerbohm
His mind was crowded with Memories; Memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink.william golding
Round my hometown, Memories are fresh Round my hometown, ooh, the people I've met Are the wonders of my world
The pure Memories given To help our joy on earth, when earth is past, Shall help our joy in heaven.
I am a miser of my Memories of you and will not spend them.
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 .
