Sunday Dinner: Souvenirs


“We are all the pieces of what we remember.

We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears

of those who love us.

As long as there is love and memory,

there is no true loss.”


Cassandra Clare



“Memory believes

before knowing remembers.

Believes longer than recollects,

longer than knowing even wonders.”


William Faulkner



“Remember my friend,

that knowledge is stronger than memory,

and we should not trust the weaker”


Bram Stoker



“Every man’s memory

is his private literature.”


Aldous Huxley



“Different people remember things differently,

and you’ll not get any two people

to remember anything the same,

whether they were there or not.”


Neil Gaiman



“Your memory feels like home to me.

So whenever my mind wanders,

it always finds it’s way back to you.”


Ranata Suzuki



“Memory’s truth, because memory has its own special kind.

It selects, eliminates, alters, exaggerates, minimizes,

glorifies, and vilifies also;

but in the end it creates its own reality,

its heterogeneous but usually coherent version of events;

and no sane human being ever trusts

someone else’s version

more than his own.”


Salman Rushdie



“Ten long trips around the sun

since I last saw that smile,

but only joy and thankfulness

that on a tiny world in the vastness,

for a couple of moments in the immensity of time,

we were one.”


Ann Druyan
