Sunday Dinner: Remembrance

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
Thomas Campbell
“There is no death, daughter.
People die only when we forget them,’
my mother explained shortly before she left me.
‘If you can remember me,
I will be with you always.”
Isabel Allende
“Beauty exists not in what is seen and remembered,
but in what is felt and never forgotten.”
Johnathan Jena
“And even if we are occupied by most important things,
if we attain to honour,
or fall into great misfortune –
– still let us remember how good it was once here,
when we were all together,
united by a good and kind feeling
which made us…better perhaps than we are.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’
I do not agree. The wounds remain.
In time, the mind, protecting its sanity,
covers them with scar tissue
and the pain lessens.
But it is never gone.”
Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
“You must learn some of my philosophy.
Think only of the past as its remembrance
gives you pleasure.”
Jane Austen
