Memory quotes
Memory
Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream.

- Kahlil Gibran
Whatever became of the moment when one first knew about death? There must have been one. A moment. In childhood. When it first occured to you that you don't go on forever. It must have been shattering, stamped into one's memory. And yet, I can't remember it.

- Tom Stoppard
For the sense of smell, almost more than any other, has the power to recall memories and it is a pity that you use it so little.

- Rachel Carson
The more a man can forget, the greater the number of metamorphoses which his life can undergo, the more he can remember the more divine his life becomes.

- Kierkegaard, S°ren
I always have trouble remembering three things: faces, names, and -- I can't remember what the third thing is.

- Allen, Fred A.
Though yet of Hamlet our dear brother's death the memory be green.

- William Shakespeare
Our memories are card indexes consulted and then returned in disorder by authorities whom we do not control.

- Connolly, Cyril
A bad conscience has a very good memory

Don't order any black things. Rejoice in his memory; and be radiant: leave grief to the children. Wear violet and purple. Be patient with the poor people who will snivel: they don't know; and they think they will live for ever, which makes death a division instead of a bond.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the fraught bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon the heart?

- Shakespeare, William
For my name and memory I leave to men's charitable speeches, and to foreign nations and the next ages.

- Bacon, Francis
Leftovers in their less visible form are called memories. Stored in the refrigerator of the mind and the cupboard of the heart.

- Fulghum, Robert
Tradition is but a meteor, which, if it once falls, cannot be rekindled. Memory, once interrupted, is not to be recalled. But written learning is a fixed luminary, which, after the cloud that had hidden it has passed away, is again bright in its proper station. So books are faithful repositories, which may be awhile neglected or forgotten, but when opened again, will again impart instruction.

- Johnson
But the iniquity of oblivion blindly scattereth her poppy, and deals with the memory of men without distinction to merit of perpetuity.

- Browne, Sir Thomas
HIBERNATE, v.i. To pass the winter season in domestic seclusion. There have been many singular popular notions about the hibernation of various animals. Many believe that the bear hibernates during the whole winter and subsists by mechanically sucking its paws. It is admitted that it comes out of its retirement in the spring so lean that it had to try twice before it can cast a shadow. Three or four centuries ago, in England, no fact was better attested than that swallows passed the winter months in the mud at the bottom of their brooks, clinging together in globular masses. They have apparently been compelled to give up the custom and account of the foulness of the brooks. Sotus Ecobius discovered in Central Asia a whole nation of people who hibernate. By some investigators, the fasting of Lent is supposed to have been originally a modified form of hibernation, to which the Church gave a religious significance; but this view was strenuously opposed by that eminent authority, Bishop Kip, who did not wish any honors denied to the memory of the Founder of his family.

- Ambrose Bierce
Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.

- Stael, Germaine De
Oh, how cruelly sweet are the echoes that start when memory plays an old tune on the heart!

- Cook, Eliza
Human memory is a marvelous but fallacious instrument. The memories which lie within us are not carved in stone; not only do they tend to become erased as the years go by, but often they change, or even increase by incorporating extraneous features.

- Levi, Primo
The act of smelling something, anything, is remarkably like the act of thinking. Immediately at the moment of perception, you can feel the mind going to work, sending the odor around from place to place, setting off complex repertories through the brain, polling one center after another for signs of re recognition, for old memories and old connection.

- Thomas, Lewis
For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of a Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a MaCaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros.

- Ethel Barrymore
