A Quote by Emily Dickinson on life and memory

If I shouldn't be alive
When the Robins come,
Give the one in Red Cravat,
A Memorial crumb.

A Quote by Edward Morgan "E. M." Forster on curiosity, life, memory, people, and stupidity

Curiosity is one of the lowest of the human faculties. You will have noticed in daily life that when people are inquisitive they nearly always have bad memories and are usually stupid at bottom.

A Quote by Edward Roscoe Murrow on dreams, emptiness, future, language, life, memory, past, and present

Language is the memory of man. Without it he has no past, a paltry present, and an empty future. With it he can bring his dreams to life.

A Quote by Edward Everett Hale on america, children, country, eternity, generations, glory, good, gratitude, humility, life, love, memory, nobility, peace, simplicity, and work

No gilded dome swells from the lowly roof to catch the morning or evening beam; but the love and gratitude of united America settle upon it in one eternal sunshine. From beneath that humble roof went forth the intrepid and unselfish warrior, the magistrate who knew no glory but his country's good; to that he returned, happiest when his work was done. There he lived in noble simplicity, there he died in glory and peace. While it stands, the latest generations of the grateful children of America will make this pilgrimage to it as to a shrine; and when it shall fall, if fall it must, the memory and the name of Washington shall shed an eternal glory on the spot.

Edward Everett Hale (1794 - 1865)

A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on bitterness, fear, heart, memory, mountains, pain, quiet, and time

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied Who told me time would ease me of my pain! I miss him in the weeping of the rain; I want him at the shrinking of the tide; The old snows melt from every mountain-side, And last year's leaves are smoke in every lane; But last year's bitter loving must remain Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide There are a hundred places where I fear To go, - so with his memory they brim And entering with relief some quiet place Where never fell his foot or shone his face I say,There is no memory of him here! And so stand stricken, so remembering him!

Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

A Quote by Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas on imagination and memory

It is all very well to copy what one sees, but it is far better to draw what one now only sees in one's memory. That is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory.

A Quote by Edgar Allan Poe on darkness, day, dreams, emptiness, memory, and planning

Dreams are the eraser dust I blow off my page. They fade into the emptiness, another dark gray day. Dreams are only memories of the plans I had back then. Dreams are eraser dust and now I use a pen.

Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849)
