#1. Man is the only creature we know, that, when the term of his natural life is ended, leaves the memory of himself behind him. - Author: William Godwin
Classmates Memories quotes by William Godwin
#2. It wasn't only my friends who suffered from female rivalry. I remember when I was just sixteen years old, during spring vacation, being whisked off to an early lunch by my best friend's brother, only to discover, to my astonishment and hurt, that she was expecting some college boys to drop by and didn't want me there to compete with her. When I started college at Sarah Lawrence, I soon noticed that while some of my classmates were indeed true friends, others seemed to resent that I had a boyfriend. It didn't help that Sarah Lawrence, a former girls' school, included very few straight men among its student body--an early lesson in how competing for items in short supply often brings out the worst in women.

In graduate school, the stakes got higher, and the competition got stiffer, a trend that continued when I went on to vie for a limited number of academic jobs. I always had friends and colleagues with whom I could have trusted my life--but I also found women who seemed to view not only me but all other female academics as their rivals.

This sense of rivalry became more painful when I divorced my first husband. Many of my friends I depended on for comfort and support suddenly began to view me as a threat. Some took me out to lunch to get the dirt, then dropped me soon after. I think they found it disturbing that I left my unhappy marriage while they were still committed to theirs. For other women, the threat seemed more immediate--twice I was told in - Author: Susan Shapiro Barash

Classmates Memories quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#4. Memory nourishes the heart, and grief abates. - Author: Marcel Proust
Classmates Memories quotes by Marcel Proust
#5. To be honest, I've always made films and I never really stopped, starting with little stop-motion experiments using my dad's Super 8 camera. In my mind, it's all one big continuum of filmmaking and I've never changed. - Author: Christopher J. Nolan
Classmates Memories quotes by Christopher J. Nolan
#6. The scenes and events of long ago, and the persons who took part in them, wear a charming aspect to the eye of memory, which sees only the outlines and takes no note of disagreeable details. The present enjoys no such advantage, and so it always seems defective. - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Classmates Memories quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#7. For all the pain you suffered, my mama. For all the torment of your past and future years, my mama. For all the anguish this picture of pain will cause you. For the unspeakable mystery that brings good fathers and sons into the world and lets a mother watch them tear at each other's throats. For the Master of the Universe, whose suffering world I do not comprehend. For dreams of horror, for nights of waiting, for memories of death, for the love I have for you, for all the things I remember, and for all the things I should remember but have forgotten, for all these I created this painting - an observant Jew working on a crucifixion because there was no aesthetic mold in his own religious tradition into which he could pour a painting of ultimate anguish and torment. - Author: Chaim Potok
Classmates Memories quotes by Chaim Potok
#8. And then came months of memories connected to nothing and telling me nothing, and in this ambiguous atmosphere I stopped thinking of him as doomed. The memories themselves were generally pleasant. For at least a week I kept reliving the time he removed a splinter from my foot using surgical tweezers. Strangely, during this same week, a black Labrador retriever was accompanying me around town, appearing out of nowhere and trotting alongside me to the subway or or the grocery store. As with the splinter memory, I had a sense of information being conveyed but through a medium too opaque to be grasped. - Author: Barbara Gowdy
Classmates Memories quotes by Barbara Gowdy
#9. To remember my values, I need to lose certain tastes and find other handles for the memories that they once helped me carry. - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Classmates Memories quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#10. And no matter where you are right now, you can come on out and stand in the middle of it as the sun is going down, and you can know that right in the spot where you are standing, there used to be someone else, that at some other point in time, someone stood where you are standing, thinking their own thoughts. And someday in the future someone will stand there and wonder about you, wonder if there was ever anybody else.

Keep in mind that you are making memories.

Consider that something you take for granted today may be the one thing you might pine for someday, and there might not be any more of it left, but you'll remember its sweetness. Remember the curve of the sun in your bedroom window late in the day, the way your little brother's hair smelled after his bath, and the sound of your mother and father talking in the kitchen.

Make sure you notice if the trees meet in an arch over your street, or if there's a certain sound that you hear at a particular time every day. Take note of those people who are so familiar to you, and consider memorizing them for a time when they are gone.
And know that if anyone ever says to you, "What will you always remember about this place?" you will know just exactly which story it is that you would tell them. - Author: Pam Conrad
Classmates Memories quotes by Pam Conrad
#11. But the things we remember are what we hold on to, and what we hold on to becomes the story of our lives. We only get one story. And I am determined to make mine a good one. - Author: Katherine Center
Classmates Memories quotes by Katherine Center
#12. Forget about the past. It does not exist, except in your memory. Drop it. And stop worrying about how you're going to get through tomorrow. Life is going on right here, right now - pay attention to that and all will be well. - Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Classmates Memories quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#13. So here was my predicament: I knew that within myself was a Golconda of memories of other lives, yet I was unable to do more than flit like a madman through those memories. I had my Golconda but could not mine it. - Author: Jack London
Classmates Memories quotes by Jack London
#14. He didn't really like travel, of course. He liked the idea of travel, and the memory of travel, but not travel itself. - Author: Julian Barnes
Classmates Memories quotes by Julian Barnes
#15. Memories don't fade, it is just we who start overlooking the things once done or said. - Author: Anuj
Classmates Memories quotes by Anuj
#16. There are memories for both of us, of course, but I've learned that memories can have a physical, almost living presence, and in this, Savannah and I are different as well.If hers are stars in the nighttime sky, mine are the haunted empty spaces in beetween ... - Author: Nicholas Sparks
Classmates Memories quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#17. We lose track of everything, and of everyone, even ourselves. The facts of my father's life are less known to me than those of the life of Hadrian. My own existence, if I had to write of it, would be reconstructed by me from externals, laboriously, as if it were the life of someone else: I should have to turn to letters, and to the recollections of others, in order to clarify such uncertain memories. What is ever left but crumbled walls, or masses of shade? - Author: Marguerite Yourcenar
Classmates Memories quotes by Marguerite Yourcenar
#18. I hoped that moment in time would never end, but as time goes, it unfortunately did - Author: Ahmad Ardalan
Classmates Memories quotes by Ahmad Ardalan
#19. It was during this period that he might have hearkened to the memories of the lair and the stream and run back to the Wild. But the memory of his mother held him ... So he remained in his bondage waiting for her. - Author: Jack London
Classmates Memories quotes by Jack London
#20. Whenever we experience an event, whether we're visiting the dentist or taking a dream vacation, our consciousness registers that experience internally on a spectrum with great pain at one end and extreme pleasure at the other. Once completed, the memory of that experience is tagged to either pain or pleasure, and it continues to exist in our bodymind. - Author: Deepak Chopra
Classmates Memories quotes by Deepak Chopra
#21. When we're awake, cortisol can fragment memories - one reason eyewitness crime scene accounts are so unreliable. But at night that very fragmentation allows creative recombinations of ideas. - Author: Jeffrey Kluger
Classmates Memories quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
#22. All of us , I believe , carry about in our heads places and landscapes we shall never forget because we have experienced such intensity of life there :places where, like the child that 'feels its life in every limb' in Wordsworth's poem'We are seven' ,our eyes have opened wider, and all our senses have somehow heightened.By way of returning the compliment , we accord these places that have given us such joy a special place in our memories and imaginations. They live on in us, wherever we may be, however far from them. - Author: Roger Deakin
Classmates Memories quotes by Roger Deakin
#23. We want our children to have a childhood that's magical and enriched, but I'll bet that your best childhood memories involve something you were thrilled to do by yourself. These are childhood's magic words: I did it myself! - Author: Lenore Skenazy
Classmates Memories quotes by Lenore Skenazy
#24. I had never heard anyone play like Benny Goodman and had never seen anyone like him on the stage. I realize now that what impressed me and stayed with me in memory was - the sounds he made. He played so purely. The music seemed to come from him, not just the instrument he played with such mastery. - Author: Marian Seldes
Classmates Memories quotes by Marian Seldes
#25. Sentimental memories were like sugar-water icicles. - Author: Tom Robbins
Classmates Memories quotes by Tom Robbins
#26. Dr. Ian Stevenson, Carlson Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia Medical School, has published five volumes of case histories, mostly of children under the age of four who have detailed memories of past lives. Some of them even describe the process of dying and being reincarnated. The vivid detail of the best cases, all verified by Dr. Stevenson and his assistants, suggests strongly that reincarnation is a real process - and therefore, by implication, that the soul is real. - Author: Whitley Strieber
Classmates Memories quotes by Whitley Strieber
#27. What we hold in our heads - our memory, our feelings, our thoughts, our sense of our own history - is the sum of our humanity. - Author: Richard Eyre
Classmates Memories quotes by Richard Eyre
#28. The wind considers how trauma is - in essence - just a memory that violates previous memories too barbarically, an event that devastatingly conflicts against everything else one knows. - Author: Samuel Armen
Classmates Memories quotes by Samuel Armen
#29. I avoid looking back. I prefer good memories to regrets. - Author: Grace Kelly
Classmates Memories quotes by Grace Kelly
#30. One of the strongest motivations for rereading is purely selfish: it helps you remember what you used to be like. Open an old paperback, spangled with marginalia in a handwriting you outgrew long ago, and memories will jump out with as much vigor as if you'd opened your old diary. These book-memories, says Hazlitt, are "pegs and loops on which we can hang up, or from which we can take down, at pleasure, the wardrobe of a moral imagination, the relics of our best affections, the tokens and records of our happiest hours." Or our unhappiest. Rereading forces you to spend time, at claustrophobically close range, with your earnest, anxious, pretentious, embarrassing former self, a person you thought you had left behind but who turns out to have been living inside you all along. - Author: Anne Fadiman
Classmates Memories quotes by Anne Fadiman
#31. And I still have other smothered memories, now unfolding themselves into limbless monsters of pain. Once, in a sunset-ending street of Beardsley, she turned to little Eva Rosen (I was taking both nymphets to a concert and walking behind them so close as almost to touch them with my person), she turned to Eva, and so very serenely and seriously, in answer to something the other had said about its being better to die than hear Milton Pinski; some local schoolboy she knew, talk about music, my Lolita remarked:
'You know what's so dreadful about dying is that you're completely on your own'; and it struck me, as my automaton knees went up and down, that I simply did not know a thing about my darling's mind and that quite possibly, behind the awful juvenile cliches, there was in her a garden and a twilight, and a palace gate - dim and adorable regions which happened to be lucidly and absolutely forbidden to me, in my polluted rags and miserable convulsions ... - Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Classmates Memories quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
