Quotable Quotes: Memory

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Hmmm. How about a few words on memory?

“Memory itself is an internal rumor.”
George Santayana

“The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

“He reminds me of the man who murdered both his parents, and then when sentence was about to be pronounced pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan”
Abraham Lincoln

“Footfalls echo in the memory

Down the passage which we did not take

Towards the door we never opened.”
T.S. Eliot

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."
Slick Willie (a/k/a Bill Clinton)

Have a good weekend.
