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 quotes
He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay, more present than the living man.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery quotes
Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory.
John Kenneth Galbraith quotes
A lot of people mistake a short memory for a clear conscience.
Doug Larson quotes
There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief
There is not any memory with less satisfaction than the memory of some temptation we resisted.
James Branch Cabell quotes
Yesterday is but today's memory, tomorrow is today's dream.
Kahlil Gibran quotes
Everyone complains of his lack of memory, but nobody of his want of judgment.
Kin Hubbard quotes
To be ignorant of what happened before you were born is to be ever a child. For what is man's lifetime unless the memory of past events is woven with those of earlier times?
Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
I've always liked reptiles. I used to see the universe as a mammoth snake, and I used to see all the people and objects, landscapes, as little pictures in the facets of their scales. I think peristaltic motion is the basic life movement. Swallowing, digestion, the rhythms of sexual intercourse. We must not forget that the lizard and the snake are identified with the unconscious, with the forces of evil. There's some- thing deep in the human memory that reacts very strongly to reptiles. Even if you've never seen one, the snake embodies everything we fear.
Jim Morrison quotes
