Gabrielle Zevin
“You forget all of it anyway. First, you forget everything you learned-the dates of the Hay-Herran Treaty and Pythagorean Theorem. You especially forget everything you didn't really learn, but just memorized the night before. You forget the names of all but one or two of your teachers, and eventually you'll forget those, too. You forget your junior class schedule and where you used to sit and your best friend's home phone number and the lyrics to that song you must have played a million times. For me, it was something by Simon & Garfunkel. Who knows what it will be for you? And eventually, but slowly, oh so slowly, you forget your humiliations-even the ones that seemed indelible just fade away. You forget who was cool and who was not, who was pretty, smart, athletic, and not. Who went to a good college. Who threw the best parties Who could get you pot. You forget all of them. Even the ones you said you loved, and even the ones you actually did. They're the last to go. And then once you've forgotten enough, you love someone else.”
Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

Ray Bradbury
“If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Jack London
“To be able to forget means sanity.”
Jack London, The Star Rover

Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain

Rick Riordan
“She had to go on this quest. The fate of the world might depend on it. But part of him wanted to say: Forget the world. He didn’t want to be without her.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

Rebecca Stead

“It’s all fine to say, “Time will heal everything, this too shall pass away. People will forget”—and things like that when you are not involved, but when you are there is no passage of time, people do not forget and you are in the middle of something that does not change.”
John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Fuyumi Soryo
“You all say the same thing. When something bad happens, everyone tells you to forget about it. But, I don't think you can forget that easily. You may be able to pretend you've forgotten, but I don't think anyone can completely forget.”
Fuyumi Soryo

Lisa Kleypas

Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon

“Crying wasn't like riding a bike. Give it up, and you quickly forget how it's done.”
Alice Hoffman, The Ice Queen

Anna Godbersen
“It is often advantiageous to forget. Forget your wincing humiliations, forget life's blows, and get on. For blocks in every direction, down every street in the city, people not yet old enough to have lines on their foreheads were laughing away memory, warmly ensconced in shrines of forgetfulness. Those who followed the word of God and those who preferred what the priests called "hoodoo" alike. People everywhere forgetting with drink or forgetting with religion or forgetting with the numbing quality of their many heaps of things. They looked forward and imagined rosy tomorrows, and gave up whatever horrors heckled their dreams, and listened to the pretty stories of whomever ruled their pulpit.”
Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

Donna Lynn Hope

Donna Lynn Hope

Fuyumi Soryo
“People forget what they want to forget.”
Fuyumi Soryo

Mary Balogh
“There is nothing worse, is there," she said, "than a past that has never been fully dealt with. One can convince oneself, that it is all safely in the past and forgotten about, but the very fact that we can tell ourselves that it is forgotten proves that it is not.”
Mary Balogh, Simply Magic

Jodi Picoult
“What could you give me," I ask, my voice shaking, "to make me forget ... that you forgot about me?”
Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts

Vera Nazarian
“The only thing faster than the speed of thought is the speed of forgetfulness. Good thing we have other people to help us remember.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Markus Zusak
“It makes me wonder, Do we spend most of our days trying to remember or forget things? Do we spend most of our time running towards or away from our lives? I don't know.”
Markus Zusak, Fighting Ruben Wolfe

“you can get past a mistake, but it's much harder to get past being a cruel person.”
Jennifer Brown, Thousand Words

John Lubbock
“Our great mistake in education is, as it seems to me, the worship of book-learning–the confusion of instruction and education. We strain the memory instead of cultivating the mind. The children in our elementary schools are wearied by the mechanical act of writing, and the interminable intricacies of spelling; they are oppressed by columns of dates, by lists of kings and places, which convey no definite idea to their minds, and have no near relation to their daily wants and occupations; while in our public schools the same unfortunate results are produced by the weary monotony of Latin and Greek grammar. We ought to follow exactly the opposite course with children–to give them a wholesome variety of mental food, and endeavor to cultivate their tastes, rather than to fill their minds with dry facts. The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn. What does it matter if the pupil know a little more or a little less? A boy who leaves school knowing much, but hating his lessons, will soon have forgotten almost all he ever learned; while another who had acquired a thirst for knowledge, even if he had learned little, would soon teach himself more than the first ever knew.”
John Lubbock, The Pleasures of Life

Stephenie Meyer
“Meski berjuang keras untuk tidak memikirkan dia, aku tidak berjuang untuk melupakan.”
Stephenie Meyer, New Moon

Kelsey Sutton
“I just wanted to go to...some quiet place. To forget. To be someone else.”

“We were there because love does not forget.”
