Quoted in "The Meaning of Life: Reflections in Words and Pictures on Why We Are Here," from Life Magazine (1991)
Memories are to fade. Yeah, they´re designed that way. She doesn´t love you anymore, may be she did long ago.savage garden
Obviously the facts are never just coming at you but are incorporated by an imagination that is formed by your previous experience. Memories of the past are not Memories of facts but Memories of your imaginings of the facts.
A mother’s happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond Memories.honoré de balzac
Memories are like flagstones, time and distance work upon them like drops of acid.
Liars ought to have good Memories.
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.

Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of Memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.václav havel
Those only deserve a monument who do not need one; that is, who have raised themselves a monument in the minds and Memories of men.william hazlitt
"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

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
It seems reasonable to envision, for a time 10 or 15 years hence, a 'thinking center' that will incorporate the functions of present-day libraries together with anticipated advances in information storage and retrieval. The picture readily enlarges itself into a network of such centers, connected to one another by wide-band communication lines and to individual users by leased-wire services. In such a system, the speed of the computers would be balanced, and the cost of the gigantic Memories and the sophisticated programs would be divided by the number of users.j. c. r. licklider
There is a very great thrill to be had from the Memories of the American Revolution, but the American Revolution was a beginning, not a consummation, and the duty laid upon us by that beginning is the duty of bringing the things then begun to a noble triumph of completion.
Round my hometown, Memories are fresh Round my hometown, ooh, the people I've met Are the wonders of my world
I dislike modern memoirs. They are generally written by people who have either entirely lost their Memories, or have never done anything worth remembering, which, however, is, no doubt, the true explanation of their popularity, as the English public always feels perfectly at its ease when a mediocrity is talking to it.
"It is the prowess of scholars that meetings bring delight and departures leave Memories."
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.
Like the wind crying endlessly through the universe, Time carries away the names and the deeds of conquerors and commoners alike. And all that we are, all that remains, is in the Memories of those who cared we came this way for a brief moment.harlan ellison
We wallow in nostalgia but manage to get it all wrong. True nostalgia is an ephemeral composition of disjointed Memories.
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 .
