the past haunt
me as a spirit,
I do not ask to forget.
~ Felicia Dorothea Browne Hemans ~
English Poet (1793-1835)
Remember me in the family tree
My name, my days, my strife
Then I'll ride upon the wings of time
and live an endless life.
~ Linda Goetsch ~
I cannot help vanishing,
disappearing and dissolving.
It is my foremost trait.
~ Stephen Crane ~
American Author (1871-1900)
To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.
~ Simone Weil ~
|It seems now as if it were
all part of another lifetime. The years pile up and fold into
decades of what once burned bright in memory recedes into the
more remote pockets of recollection. We treat the past as if
it were a vault in which events can be stored and preserved
against the incursions of time. Time stakes its claim. Memory
is an untrustworthy guide. It can be elusive and tricky. The
tale, cast anew each time, becomes transformed in the telling.
The facts of course, are always the same; it is the way we see
feel about them that changes. ~ Stanley Cohen ~
