“In the life of everyone there is a limited number of experiences which are not written upon the memory, but stamped there with a die; and in the long years after, they can be called up in detail, and every emotion that was stirred by them can be lived through anew; these are the tragedies of life.” ~James Weldon Johnson, The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man

"It takes a huge effort to free yourself from memory, but when you succeed, you start to realize that you’re capable of far more than you have imagined. Visit your soul; don’t visit your past." ~Paulo Coelho

"Love leaves a memory no one can steal." ~Anon

"Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others." ~Rosa Parks

“No matter how much suffering you went through, you never wanted to let go of those memories.” ~Haruki Murakami

“So much of our early gladness vanishes utterly from our memory: we can never recall the joy with which we laid our heads on our mother's bosom or rode on our father's back in childhood. Doubtless that joy is wrought up into our nature, as the sunlight of long-past mornings is wrought up in the soft mellowness of the apricot, but it is gone for ever from our imagination, and we can only BELIEVE in the joy of childhood.” ~George Eliot, Adam Bede

“Some of my earliest and fondest memories of my mother are of her kneeling at the side of per bed every night and praying. As a child, I would always get very close to her as she prayed. I would put my ear as close as I could to her mouth and try my best to hear what she was saying to God, but I never could make out the words. Today, being married to an addict myself, I'm pretty sure I know exactly what she was praying.” ~Barbara Bice, Just Right

"Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart." ~Washington Irving (1783-1859)

"The sun glints through the pines, and the heart is pierced in a moment of beauty and strange pain, like a memory of paradise. After that day. . . we become seekers." ~Peter Matthiessen
