Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“People will always notice something about you. It might be the way you walk or the way you talk, or just simply your personality. Live each day in the way you want to be remembered. Live in such a way that people will be inspired by those unique qualities that you have and strive to live better lives for themselves.”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana

Washington Irving
“The sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced. Every other wound we seek to heal - every other affliction to forget; but this wound we consider it a duty to keep open - this affliction we cherish and brood over in solitude. Where is the mother who would willingly forget the infant that perished like a blossom from her arms, though every recollection is a pang? Where is the child that would willingly forget the most tender of parents, though to remember be but to lament? Who, even in the hour of agony, would forget the friend over whom he mourns? Who, even when the tomb is closing upon the remains of her he most loved, when he feels his heart, as it were, crushed in the closing of its portal, would accept of consolation that must be bought by forgetfulness? No, the love which survives the tomb is one of the noblest attributes of the soul. If it has its woes, it has likewise its delights; and when the overwhelming burst of grief is calmed into the gentle tear of recollection, when the sudden anguish and the convulsive agony over the present ruins of all that we most loved are softened away in pensive meditation on all that it was in the days of its loveliness - who would root out such a sorrow from the heart? Though it may sometimes throw a passing cloud over the bright hour of gaiety, or spread a deeper sadness over the hour of gloom, yet who would exchange it even for the song of pleasure, or the burst of revelry? No, there is a voice from the tomb sweeter than song. There is a remembrance of the dead to which we turn even from the charms of the living. Oh, the grave! The grave! It buries every error - covers every defect - extinguishes every resentment! From its peaceful bosom spring none but fond regrets and tender recollections.”
Washington Irving

John Green
“I was not religious, but I liked rituals. I liked the idea of connecting an action with remembering.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

Kahlil Gibran
“You may forget the one with whom you have laughed, but never the one with whom you have wept.”
Kahlil Gibran, Sand and Foam

Edgar A. Guest
“The Gentle Gardener

I'd like to leave but daffodils to mark my little way,
To leave but tulips red and white behind me as I stray;
I'd like to pass away from earth and feel I'd left behind
But roses and forget-me-nots for all who come to find.

I'd like to sow the barren spots with all the flowers of earth,
To leave a path where those who come should find but gentle mirth;
And when at last I'm called upon to join the heavenly throng
I'd like to feel along my way I'd left no sign of wrong.

And yet the cares are many and the hours of toil are few;
There is not time enough on earth for all I'd like to do;
But, having lived and having toiled, I'd like the world to find
Some little touch of beauty that my soul had left behind.”
Edgar A. Guest

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“You see the wheat fields over there? I don't eat bread. For me, wheat is of no use whatever. Wheat fields say nothing to me. Which is sad. But you have hair the color of gold. So it will be wonderful, once you've tamed me! The wheat, which is golden, will remind me of you. And I'll love the sound of the wind in the wheat...”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Victoria Schwab
“Isn't it strange? It's like after they die, you're only allowed to remember the good. But no one's all good.”
Victoria Schwab, The Archived

Rosamund Lupton
“Grief is the ultimate unrequited love. However hard and long we love someone who has died, they can never love us back. At least that is how it feels....”
Rosamund Lupton, Sister

Deepak Chopra
“In India they tell a fable about this: There was once a great devotee of Vishnu who prayed night and day to see his God. One night his wish was granted and Vishnu appeared to him. Falling on his knees, the devotee cried out, "I will do anything for you, my Lord, just ask."
"How about a drink of water?" Vishnu replied.
Although surprised by the request, the devotee immediately ran to the river as fast as his legs could carry him. When he got there and knelt to dip up some water, he saw a beautiful woman standing on an island in the middle of the river. The devotee fell madly in love on the spot. He grabbed a boat and rowed over to her. She responded to him, and the two were married. They had children in a house on the island; the devotee grew rich and old plying his trade as a merchant. Many years later, a typhoon came along and devastated the island. The merchant was swept away in the storm. He nearly drowned but regained consciousness on the very spot where he had once begged to see God. His whole life, including his house, wife, and children, seemed never to have happened.
Suddenly he looked over his shoulder, only to see Vishnu standing there in all his radiance.
"Well," Vishnu said, "did you find me a glass of water?”
Deepak Chopra, How To Know God: The Soul's Journey Into The Mystery Of Mysteries

Howard Bahr
“So Anna did not blame the women of her time for what they had created; it was different only in kind from what she had made herself. And if the old soldiers wanted only to forgive, Anna understood that, too, though in her own memory she could no longer find anything that needed forgiving. In the sunlight by her cousin’s grave, she would touch the black ostrich plume in her hat—the plume that, like herself, grew a little older and little more frayed every year—and think about what all of it meant to her. Down the hill slept the soldiers, and she would visit certain of them in a little while, and the thought of them—their faces, their voices, their particular ways—always made her smile. General Nathan Bedford Forrest himself told her once that she had seen the last of a great army, but he was wrong in that, for they still moved out there in the sunlight, all of them. He was right about one thing though: there was no shame in it, not ever.”
Howard Bahr, The Black Flower: A Novel of the Civil War

“That good or bad momentS never be forgetten. It Store alwayS in any corner it will remembered at right time automaticaly. No one can eraSe it but Simply it forgotten for Some time till the true time.”

“remember me as of ages ago and days gone long,
When we’d go off at a tangent along;
Thy page- dyed pieces among
The rest I have known a poem.”

The Anzacs are our history,
Our brethren and our kin,
Some were our grandfathers,
Yet many were our friends.
“Come join up.” they’d say,
But I had a gummy leg,
So I would listen to their bravado,
Glad that they were me mates.
They sailed away one day,
To face a fateful shore,
Many never to return,
For they had met their fates once more.
Those that returned,
You could see it in their face,
They would talk in lowly whispers,
About their fallen mates.
So Anzacs are Australian,
New Zealanders in there too,
And so we joined the others,
What else were we to do.
Anzac Day’s a remembrance,
A day of seeing true,
To remember the loss and sorrow,
As they fought for,
Me and You”
Anthony T. Hincks

“No one said this out loud, though. Instead his girlfriend stood between the dead guy's parents and cried as if she really was heartbroken. And maybe she was. Who knows? People are funny that way. They remember only what they want to and manage to forget the rest.”
Meghan MacLean Weir, The Book of Essie

Sherry Thomas
“Do you leave as a ship sailing out of harbour?
Do you return as rain to the earth?
Will I guide you in the Beyond, if I hold aloft the brightest light here on Earth?”
Sherry Thomas, The Immortal Heights
