“Had I been brought to America a few years earlier, I might have written that in such and such a year my father emigrated, just as I would state what he did for a living, as a matter of family history. Happening when it did, the emigration became of the most vital importance to me personally. All the processes of uprooting, transportation, replanting, acclimatization, and development took place in my own soul. I felt the pang, the fear, the wonder, and the joy of it. I can never forget, for I bear the scars. But I want to forget - sometimes I long to forget.”
Mary Antin, The Promised Land

“The Wandering Jew in me seeks forgetfulness.”
Mary Antin, The Promised Land

“A long past vividly remembered is like a heavy garment that clings to your limbs when you would run.”
Mary Antin, The Promised Land
