“We should never become so enamored with the future that we forget the value of the past.

D.S. Cahr

“The things you do with your friends are shared memories, thought Edie. You never fully remember the details of your life’s experiences yourself; you need your friends to fill in the gaps to completely experience the memory. Otherwise the depth and power of that memory gets lost to the passage of time.”
D.S. Cahr, The Secret Root

“I got my heart's desire, and there my troubles began.”
Lev Grossman, The Magicians

“We never look beyond our assumptions and, what’s worse, we have given up trying to meet others; we just meet ourselves. We don’t recognize each other because other people have become our permanent mirrors.”
Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

You never fully remember the details of your life’s experiences yourself; you need your friends to fill in the gaps to completely experience the memory.
