Forgotten quotes by Muriel Barbery
#1. The gifts of fate come with a price. For those who have been favored by life's indulgence, rigorous respect in matters of beauty is a non-negotiable requirement. Language is a bountiful gift and its usage, an elaboration of community and society, is a sacred work. Language and usage evolve over time: elements change, are forgotten or reborn, and while there are instances where transgression can become the source of an even greater wealth, this does not alter the fact that to be entitled to the liberties of playfulness or enlightened misusage when using language, one must first and foremost have sworn one's total allegiance. Society's elect, those whom fate has spared from the servitude that is the lot of the poor, must, consequently, shoulder the double burden of worshipping and respecting the splendors of language. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Forgotten quotes by Will Advise
#2. A poem to Raymond, whom everybody loves, originally composed on a waterproof smartphone in a sea of love, which was hidden under the pile of garbage that my bum-pals that have no pen names, or pen-pals, or names, for that matter, brought to me as an offering on the 1st of April 1877, exactly 111 years and 7 months before I was brought forth to this world, because some anonymous prophet told them this would bring luck, joy, happiness, food, and, of course – shelter from evil (he was lying):

If it's fantasy you seek,
to E. Feist then, you must speak.
All he writes is all there is,
for his words, they move the seas.
.
I would write, but I know naught.
In my heart there is a draught.
Hidden desert - golden sands.
Few my love can ever stand.

And so far I've talked to many,
a reply - will there be any?
I know - not, yet I know naught,
all to question, I was taught...

So I learn, I borrow wisdom,
from the great, the ones with vision.
They can teach, the few that grasp,
concepts from a long forgotten past. #Quote by Will Advise
Forgotten quotes by Charles Bukowski
#3. I remember awakening one morning and finding everything smeared with the color of forgotten love. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Forgotten quotes by Mary Balogh
#4. this has been a birthday best forgotten."
"Most birthdays are, milord," his man said agreeably #Quote by Mary Balogh
Forgotten quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#5. Life, for the most part, inevitably becomes routine, the random confluence of timing and fortune that configures its components all but forgotten. But every so often, I catch a glimpse of my life out of the corner of my eye, and am rendered breathless by it. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Forgotten quotes by Robert Jackson Bennett
#6. Peace is but the absence of war. War and conflict form the sea through which nation-states swim. Some who have had the fortune to find clear, calm waters believe otherwise. They have forgotten that war is momentum. War is natural. And war makes one strong. #Quote by Robert Jackson Bennett
Forgotten quotes by W.H. Auden
#7. How much must be forgotten out of love,
How much must be forgiven, even love. #Quote by W.H. Auden
Forgotten quotes by Pierre-Jean De Beranger
#8. When in our days Religion is made a political engine, she exposes herself to having her sacred character forgotten. The most tolerant become intolerant towards her. Believers, who believe something else besides what she teaches, retaliate by attacking her in the very sanctuary itself. #Quote by Pierre-Jean De Beranger
Forgotten quotes by Cornelius Van Til
#9. It should not be forgotten in this connection that the minister's duty is increasingly that of an apologist for Christianity. The general level of education is much higher than it has ever been. Many young people hear of evolution in the high schools and in the college where their fathers never heard of it except as far as a distant something. If the minister would be able to help his young people, he must be a good apologete, and he cannot be a good apologete unless he is a good systematic theologian (pg. 24). #Quote by Cornelius Van Til
Forgotten quotes by Marshall Thornton
#10. Frenemies were uniquely Californian. A danger his mother forgotten to mention. #Quote by Marshall Thornton
Forgotten quotes by Seanan McGuire
#11. She discovered the pure joy of reading for pleasure, and was rarely - if ever - seen without a book in her hand. Even in slumber, she was often to be found clutching a volume with one slender hand, her fingers wrapped right around its spine, as if she feared to wake into a world where all books had been forgotten and removed, and this book might become the last she had to linger over. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Forgotten quotes by Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf
#12. We made them drink poison last night and Saddam Hussein's soldiers and his great forces gave the Americans a lesson which will not be forgotten by history. Truly. #Quote by Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf
Forgotten quotes by A.G. Howard
#13. He starts to hum, a haunting melody. No words ride the music, only the familiar notes of a forgotten song. #Quote by A.G. Howard
Forgotten quotes by Judy Blunt
#14. I came to recognize the landscape of my life in the lives of many women. Their stories and the places they spoke of spanned a world beyond my experience, from mill towns to suburbs, from logging camps to ethnic neighborhoods, from inner cities to Indian reservations. Few shared my place of origin or the events of my life, but many, it seems, shared my experience. Listening to their stories, I came to understand how women can be isolated by circumstances as well as by distance, and how our experiences, though geographically distinct, often translated into the same feelings. Away from the physical presence of my past, I found it easy to argue that what mattered most was the story, the truth of what we tell ourselves, the versions we pass along to our daughters. But as I stood in the living room of my rock house that afternoon, I was again reminded of the enormous power of this prairie, its silence and the whisper I made inside it. I had forgotten how easily one person can be lost here. #Quote by Judy Blunt
Forgotten quotes by Nicole Krauss
#15. He had slept next to her for thirty-six years, and the mattress felt different without her weight, however slight, and without the rhythm of her breath the dark had no measure. There were times he woke feeling cold from the lack of the heat that once came from between her thighs and behind her knees. He might have even called her, if he could have momentarily forgotten that he already knew everything she could possibly say. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Forgotten quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#16. The internet itself led him from one word to the next, giving links, pointing out. When it didn't know something it tactfully kept quiet or stubbornly showed him the same pages, ad nauseam. Then Kunicki had the impression that he had just landed at the border of the known world, at the wall, at the membrane of the heavenly firmament. There wasn't any way to break through it with his head and look through. The internet is a fraud. It promises so much - that it will execute your every command, that it will find you what you're looking for; execution, fulfillment, reward. But in essence that promise is a kind of bait, because you immediately fall into a trance, into hypnosis. The paths quickly diverge, double and multiply, and you go down them, still chasing an aim that will now get blurry and undergo some transformations. You lose the ground beneath your feet, the place where you started from just gets forgotten, and your aim finally vanishes from sight, disappears in the passage of more and more pages, businesses that always promise more than they can give, shamelessly pretending that under the flat plane of the screen there is some cosmos. But nothing could be more deceptive, dear Kunicki. What are you, Kunicki, looking for? What are you aiming at? You feel like spreading out your arms and plunging into it, into that abyss, but there is nothing more deceptive: the landscape turns out to be a wallpaper, you can't go any farther. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Forgotten quotes by Tracy Lee Simmons
#17. History and literature rebuke our self-sufficiency; that's one reason why we ought to study them. It's not so much that people of olden times were the finest exemplars of higher humanity, for they too fell short of their ideals, as must all who aspire to higher things--that's what ideals are for. It's that we have abandoned those ideals once animating our civilization, refusing to learn them anew with each generation. We have assumed their transfer to be automatic. We have not indeed jettisoned the hope and drive that keep us working for a better world (that's the good news), but we have forgotten to cultivate ourselves as individuals. #Quote by Tracy Lee Simmons
Forgotten quotes by Judith Viorst
#18. Not listening is probably the commonest unkindness of married life, and one that creates - more devastatingly than an eternity of forgotten birthdays and misguided Christmas gifts - an atmosphere of not loving and not caring. #Quote by Judith Viorst
Forgotten quotes by Nancy Springer
#19. He was just a sixteen-year old boy who had been killed, a kid whose photo had been in the paper, a kid who would mostly be forgotten by the time the newspaper went into the garbage-yet he was the universe, all the dying, all the crying. He was everyone who had ever died young. #Quote by Nancy Springer
Forgotten quotes by Daša Drndić
#20. ...wars are orgies of forgetfulness. The twentieth century has archived vast catacombs, tunnels of information in which researchers get lost and in the end abandon their research, catacombs that ever fewer people enter. Stored away---forgotten. The twentieth century, a century of great tidying that ends in cleansing; the twentieth century, a century of cleansing, a century of erasure. Language perhaps remains, but it too is crumbling. #Quote by Daša Drndić
Forgotten quotes by Justine Picardie
#21. People are often dismissive of librarians and libraries - as if the words are synonymous with boredom or timidity. But isn't that where the best stories are kept? Hidden away on the library bookshelves, lost and forgotten, waiting, waiting, until someone like me comes along, and wants to borrow them? #Quote by Justine Picardie
Forgotten quotes by Jane Hamilton
#22. I'd forgotten how your blood flows toward a person when they move, so that all at once, you know what the pull of gravity feels like. And you know that this is something strong and important, something that you need for life, this woman moving through the room. #Quote by Jane Hamilton
Forgotten quotes by Sherri L. King
#23. It had been so long since she had felt the touch of a man. Too long. She had almost forgotten that ripe, heavy throb of attraction and desire that could instantly drug her body and mind more thoroughly than any hard liquor. #Quote by Sherri L. King
Forgotten quotes by Lee Pace
#24. I'd forgotten it's an important thing to give thought to your morality and how you intend to live your life. #Quote by Lee Pace
Forgotten quotes by Lord Dunsany
#25. And Jabim is the Lord of broken things, who sitteth behind the house to lament the things that are cast away. And there he sitteth lamenting the broken things until the worlds be ended, or until someone cometh to mend the broken things. Or sometimes he sitteth by the river's edge to lament the forgotten things that drift upon it.
A kindly god is Jabim, whose heart is sore if anything be lost. #Quote by Lord Dunsany
Forgotten quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#26. What is memory but the repository of things doomed to be forgotten, so you must have History. You must have labor to invent History. Being faithful to all that happens to you of significance, recording days, dates, events, names, sights not relying merely upon memory which fades like a Polaroid print where you see the memory fading before your eyes like time itself retreating. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Forgotten quotes by Kylie Scott
#27. What's under here?" He toyed with the hem of my shirt.
"You've forgotten already?"
He dragged my T-shirt over my head and tossed it aside. "Oh, breasts. Best present ever. Thanks, pumpkin. #Quote by Kylie Scott
Forgotten quotes by Sumit Lakhani
#28. 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. #Quote by Sumit Lakhani
Forgotten quotes by William Faulkner
#29. Yes, urge I do: warped chrysalis of what blind perfect seed: for who shall say what gnarled forgotten root might not bloom yet with some globed concentrate more globed and concentrate and heady-perfect because the neglected root was planted warped and lay not dead but merely slept forgot? #Quote by William Faulkner
Forgotten quotes by Minor White
#30. When I look at pictures I have made, I have forgotten what I saw in front of the camera and respond only to what I am seeing in the photographs. #Quote by Minor White
Forgotten quotes by Michael Hibbard
#31. There is a darkened corridor, forgotten by the sun, shrouded in shadow and transgression. #Quote by Michael Hibbard
Forgotten quotes by Joseph Conrad
#32. The artist descends within himself, and in that lonely region of stress and strife, if he be deserving and fortunate, he finds the terms of his appeal. His appeal is made to our less obvious capacities: to that part of our nature which, because of the warlike conditions of existence, is necessarily kept out of sight within the more resisting and hard qualities ... His appeal is less loud, more profound, less distinct, more stirring - and sooner forgotten. Yet its effect endures forever ... the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom: to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Forgotten quotes by Mark Twain
#33. So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked. #Quote by Mark Twain
Forgotten quotes by Milan Kundera
#34. The light that radiates from the great novels time can never dim, for human existence is perpetually being forgotten by man and thus the novelists' discoveries, however old they may be, will never cease to astonish. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Forgotten quotes by Malala Yousafzai
#35. Islam tells us every girl and boy should be educated. I don't know why the Taliban have forgotten it. #Quote by Malala Yousafzai
Forgotten quotes by Seamus Heaney
#36. Memory has always been fundamental for me. In fact, remembering what I had forgotten is the way most of the poems get started. #Quote by Seamus Heaney
Forgotten quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#37. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Forgotten quotes by Sherman Alexie
#38. It's a weird thing. Reservations were meant to be prisons, you know? Indians were supposed to move onto reservations and die. We were supposed to disappear. But somehow or another, Indians have forgotten the reservations were meant to be death camps. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Forgotten quotes by Alain De Botton
#39. Voluntary memory, the memory of the intellect and the eyes, [gives] us only imprecise facsimiles of the past which no more resemble it than pictures by bad painters resemble the spring. ... So we don't believe that life is beautiful because we don't recall it, but if we get a whiff of a long-forgotten smell we are suddenly intoxicated, and similarly we think we no longer love the dead, because we don't remember them, but if by chance we come across an old glove we burst into tears. A #Quote by Alain De Botton
Forgotten quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#40. There was a super-8 steel town somewhere, where all the forgotten things in the cruel world ended up eventually, Mandy was sure of it ... this place, she decided, was called Smog City. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Forgotten quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#41. A true friend reminds you why you should believe in yourself when you've forgotten. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Forgotten quotes by Mary Balogh
#42. 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. #Quote by Mary Balogh
Forgotten quotes by Mary Stobie
#43. A memoir emerges from facts and dreams, and tells the story we have almost forgotten.

by Mary Stobie #Quote by Mary Stobie
Forgotten quotes by John Wesley
#44. As theories increased, simple medicines..were forgotten, at least in the politer nations ... Medical books, were immensely multiplied, ... (towards) an abstruse science, quite out of reach of ordinary men. #Quote by John Wesley
Forgotten quotes by Kay Solo
#45. Maaya almost couldn't breathe. She had occasionally passed funerals when she dared to step foot outside town, and she had always marveled at the beautiful speeches people had come up with to honor their dead. But she had never felt so overcome, so overwhelmed by a moment as she did now, all from a unanimous honor given without saying a word. Every light was its own star, each sent skyward from someone with the name of a loved one on their lips or in their hearts. The sky glowed so bright that Maaya imagined this was not just a symbol for one world alone to celebrate; it was a message from one world to the next, where millions of flickering lights from every corner of this side of the earth all joined together in one powerful, silent voice to say: We have not forgotten you. #Quote by Kay Solo
Forgotten quotes by Ryu Murakami
#46. Sometimes you can remember everything about an old friend, down to minor details about his behaviour, but for the life of you you can't picture his face. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
Forgotten quotes by Lynn Austin
#47. Everyone had forgotten her. But that's the way Penny was
so quiet and unimportant that you could look right at her and never see her. Esther had no idea why Penny always showed up at Grandma's house on Sunday afternoons when they came to visit. She was just one of those nosy neighbors with no life of her own, who watched other people's lives as if watching a movie. #Quote by Lynn Austin
Forgotten quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#48. I will write: for myself, for those who come after, and for the voices that cry out not to be forgotten. #Quote by Stephen R. Lawhead
Forgotten quotes by Unkown Author
#49. I like weird people... The black sheep, the odd ducks, the rejects, the eccentrics, the loners, the lost and forgotten. More often than not, these people have the most beautiful souls. #Quote by Unkown Author
Forgotten quotes by Lee Sandlin
#50. War ends at the moment when peace permanently wins out. Not when the articles of surrender are signed or the last shot is fired, but when the last shout of a sidewalk battle fades, when the next generation starts to wonder whether the whole thing ever really happened. World War II ended as war always ends -- by trailing off into nothingness and doubt. Its final monument has never been seen by mortal eyes. It's a phantom image at the edge of a rumor: an unmarked grave in the depths of the South American jungle where a weird and decrepit old man, half forgotten by the world, at last entered the lists of oblivion. #Quote by Lee Sandlin
Forgotten quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#51. I feel compressed. I'm folding my emotions like a piece of paper - a tiny square, into a tiny square, into a tiny square. When they're folded up enough I can leave them in a corner of my mind somewhere, to be forgotten. That's how I deal, isn't it? And sometimes, on a day like today, I imagine that my brain is littered with hundreds of bastard feelings I won't claim. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Forgotten quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#52. The pyramids, attached with age, have forgotten the names of their founders. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Forgotten quotes by Sam Heughan
#53. Working on 'Outlander' has been a delight, it really has. I had kind of forgotten what Scotland was like, and I'd turned into a bit of a Londoner. #Quote by Sam Heughan
Forgotten quotes by Mary Oliver
#54. Various ambitions to complete the poem, to see it in print, to enjoy the gratification of someone's comment about it - serve in some measure as incentives to the writer's work. Though each of these is reasonable, each is a threat to the other ambition of the poet, which is to write as well as Keats, Yeats, or Williams - or whoever it was who scribbled onto a page a few lines whose force the reader once felt and has never forgotten. Every poet's ambition should be to write as well. Anything else is only a flirtation. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Forgotten quotes by Adyashanti
#55. The sacred dimension is not something that you can know through words and ideas any more than you can learn what an apple pie tastes like by eating the recipe. The modern age has forgotten that facts and information, for all their usefulness, are not the same as truth or wisdom, and certainly not the same as direct experience. #Quote by Adyashanti
Forgotten quotes by Frederick Lenz
#56. We are everything and we are nothing. We are a forgotten moment. We don't even exist, which is the freeing part. We just think we do. That's the illusion. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Forgotten quotes by Jean Rhys
#57. She was a shadow, kept alive by a flame of hatred for somebody who had long ago forgotten all about her. #Quote by Jean Rhys
Forgotten quotes by Anna Kavan
#58. In a polished surface of metal I happen to notice my reflected face; it wears a pale, beaten lonely look, eyes looking out at nothing with an expression of fear, frightened and lonely in a nightmare world. Something, I don't know what, makes me think of my childhood; I remember myself as a schoolchild sitting at a hard wooden desk, and then as a little girl with thick, fair, wind-tossed hair, feeding the swans in a park. And it seems both strange and sad to me that all those childish years were spent in preparation for this – that, forgotten by everybody, with a beaten face, I should serve machinery in a place far away from the sun. #Quote by Anna Kavan
Forgotten quotes by Louis L'Amour
#59. Hardy had learned in a hard school, where the tests are given by savage Indians, by bitter cold, by hunger. These were tests where the result was not just a bad mark if one failed. The result was a starved or frozen body somewhere, forgotten in the wilderness. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Forgotten quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
#60. For I say to you in all the sadness of conviction, that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone – when you have felt around you a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and in despair have trusted to your own unshaken will – then only will you have achieved. Thus only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that, a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten, men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought – the subtle rapture of a postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Forgotten quotes by R. Carlos Nakai
#61. A birth we embark on a good journey, seeking a destination of happiness. The journeys on our life-road facilitate development of our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual states-of-being, into a way of true power and wisdom. The Heart-center power, expressed as happiness and love, will guide us upward on a path away from frustration, bitter toil and travail. These journeys are directed inward, not outwardly in material mementos of ego and possession. The lesson is relearning that which has been suppressed and forgotten, in ourselves, since our earliest childhood. #Quote by R. Carlos Nakai
Forgotten quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#62. The rites of passage in the academic world are arcane and, in their own way, highly romantic, and the tensions and unplesantries of dissertations and final oral examinations are quickly forgotten in the wonderful moment of the sherry afterward, admission into a very old club, parties of celebration, doctoral gowns, academic rituals, and hearing for the first time "Dr.," rather than "Miss" Jamison. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Forgotten quotes by Erica Jong
#63. I have forgotten my rave reviews and memorized my vicious ones - like most writers. #Quote by Erica Jong
Forgotten quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#64. Dr. Jeffrey Korchak: [reading aloud] Dear attractive woman number 2, only once in my life have I responded to a person the way I've responded to you, but I've forgotten when it was or even if it was in fact me that responded. I may not know much, but I know that the wind sings your name endlessly, although with a slight lisp that makes it difficult to understand if I'm standing near an air conditioner. I know that your hair sits atop your head as though it could sit nowhere else. I know that your figure would make a sculptor cast aside his tools, injuring his assistant who was looking out the window instead of paying attention. I know that your lips are as full as that sexy french model's that I desperately want to fuck. I know that if for an instant I could have you lie next to me, or on top of me, or sit on me, or stand over me and shake, then I would be the happiest man in my pants. I know all of this, and yet you do not know me. Change your life; accept my love. Or, at least let me pay you to accept it. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Forgotten quotes by Samuel Beckett
#65. But all is forgotten and I have done nothing, unless what I am doing now is something, and nothing could give me greater satisfaction. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Forgotten quotes by D. Nichole King
#66. No matter how dark it gets, the sun always rises eventually and starts a new day. The darkness is forgotten. #Quote by D. Nichole King
Forgotten quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#67. But there was Jordan beside me, who, unlike Daisy, was too wise ever to carry well-forgotten dreams from age to age. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Forgotten quotes by Shirley Manson
#68. I want to hear from the creature who isn't blessed with unbelievable good looks and incredible genes. I want to hear from the geek girl, the forgotten girl, the invisible girl and the miserable girl. #Quote by Shirley Manson
Forgotten quotes by Aaron Siskind
#69. Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever ... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. #Quote by Aaron Siskind
Forgotten quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#70. Oh, well. Everyone else has suave, cosmopolitan sheep: why not us? The Millers at Hepple have a ewe that's been to Kelso three times, and they've never been farther than Ford in their lives." Kate peered absently into the farm pond, and clucked again. "Thoughtless creatures. They've forgotten the fish. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Forgotten quotes by Muriel Barbery
#71. Language is a bountiful gift and its usage, an elaboration of community and society, is a sacred work. Language and usage evolve over time: elements change, are reborn or forgotten, and while there are instances where transgression can become the source of an even greater wealth, this does not alter the fact that to become entitled to the liberties of playfulness or enlightened misuse of language, one must first and foremost have sworn one's total allegiance. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Forgotten quotes by Wendell Berry
#72. But in fact as knowledge expands globally it is being lost locally. This is the paramount truth of the modern history of rural places everywhere in the world. And it is the gravest problem of land use: Modern humans typically are using places whose nature they have never known and whose history they have forgotten; thus ignorant, they almost necessarily abuse what they use. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Forgotten quotes by Claire North
#73. I am frightened now. I am frightened that when he fades from my memory, a piece of me will die too. The feelings, the things I have learned, the ideas I have had today, so many ideas, so many feelings, they will die with my memory. I fear that loss. But more, a terror that I must share with my future self. I fear what this means for me. If you forget the joy of this day, then what joy you give to others will also be forgotten, and your life has no consequence, no meaning, no worth. I am a shadow, blasted away by the sun, a meaningless occlusion of light that fades with the day. #Quote by Claire North
Forgotten quotes by Milan Kundera
#74. Just where was she trying to go back to? Prague? She had even forgotten it existed. To the small town in the west of Europe? No. She simply wanted to go away. Does that mean she wished to die? No, no, not at all. On the contrary, she had a terrific desire to live. Then she must have had some idea about the world she wanted to live in! She had none. All she had left was a tremendous craving for life, and her body. Nothing but these two things, nothing more. She wanted to tear them away from the island and save them. Her body and that craving for life. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Forgotten quotes by Joe R. Lansdale
#75. Let me tell you, if you have never seen an agitated squirrel you have seen very little, nor have you heard much, because the sound of an angry squirrel is not to be forgotten. #Quote by Joe R. Lansdale
Forgotten quotes by Thomas Merton
#76. Memory is corrupted and ruined by a crowd of memories. If I am going to have a true memory, there are a thousand things that must first be forgotten. Memory is not fully itself when it reaches only into the past. A memory that is not alive to the present does not remember the here and now, does not remember its true identity, is not memory at all. He who remembers nothing but facts and past events, and is never brought back into the present, is a victim of amnesia. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Forgotten quotes by Ruth St. Denis
#77. As we rise higher in the understanding of ourselves, the national and racial dissonances will be forgotten in the universal rhythms of Truth and Love. #Quote by Ruth St. Denis
Forgotten quotes by Barack Obama
#78. To all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces, to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of the world, our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand. #Quote by Barack Obama
Forgotten quotes by George R R Martin
#79. And if I hear 'Your Grace' once more, I'll have your head on a spike. We are more to each other than that." "I had not forgotten," Ned replied quietly. #Quote by George R R Martin
Forgotten quotes by Glennon Doyle Melton
#80. The truest, most beautiful life never promises to be an easy one. We need to let go of the lie that it's supposed to be.
Each of those women has begun to live from her imagination. Here's how: Each honored her own discontent. She did not dismiss it, bury it, deflect it, deny it, blame it on someone else, or tell herself to shut up and be grateful. She heard her Knowing whisper "Not this," and she admitted to herself that she heard it. She sat with it for a while. Then she dared to utter her inner whisper out loud. She shared her discontent with another human being.
Then, when she was ready to move from Not this to This instead, she dared to call upon her imagination to tell her the story she was born to tell with her life. She dreamed up what it would look like to have her specific version of truth and beauty come to life. She looked for the blueprint she'd been born with, the one she'd forgotten existed. She unearthed her unseen order: her original plan. #Quote by Glennon Doyle Melton
Forgotten quotes by Ellen G. White
#81. Of the poor, fainting soul, tired of looking to humanity only to be betrayed and forgotten, Christ says, "Let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me" (Isaiah 27:5). #Quote by Ellen G. White
Forgotten quotes by Bhavya Kaushik
#82. I feel like I am a diluted version of myself. A piece of crayon that was left unused. An abandoned car that was forgotten by its owner. I feel like I am a roadside accident. People are just stopping by to see the damage, but no one is trying to help me. I want you to come back and stop me from burning my own fuel. I want you to put me back in the pack of crayons. I want you to make me whole again. #Quote by Bhavya Kaushik
Forgotten quotes by Will Durant
#83. It is a mistake to think that the past is dead. Nothing that has ever happened is quite without influence at this moment. The present is merely the past rolled up and concentrated in this second of time. You, too, are your past; often your face is your autobiography; you are what you are because of what you have been; because of your heredity stretching back into forgotten generations; because of every element of environment that has affected you, every man or woman that has met you, every book that you have read, every experience that you have had; all these are accumulated in your memory, your body, your character, your soul. So with a city, a country, and a race; it is its past, and cannot be understood without it. #Quote by Will Durant
Forgotten quotes by Ziggy Marley
#84. The most important thing my father taught me is that every man has to stand up for his rights. #Quote by Ziggy Marley
Forgotten quotes by Cassandra Danz
#85. The way to get a deciduous hedge for free is to ask a neighbor to let you take divisions from his shrubs. You can take ten or twenty sucker-like shoots with their roots attached before he will notice and start to feel like a sucker himself. Thank him profusely and suggest that you'd love to have him and the wife over to dinner sometime, but don't give a specific date. Perhaps in the winter, you might suggest, when there's not so much work to do in the yard.
... in about three to five years the little suckers will grow into an informal hedge whose height will depend on the type of shrub you have selected. I know three to five years is a long time when you're middle-aged and older. But what do you want? You've just glommed several hundred dollars' worth of shrubs for free, for heaven's sake. In three to five years your neighbor will have forgotten about that dinner, also. #Quote by Cassandra Danz
Forgotten quotes by Oliver Sacks
#86. I was on the shy side at school (one school report called me 'diffident') and Braefield had added a special timidity, but when I had a natural wonder... I lost all my diffidence, and freely approached others, all my fear forgotten. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Forgotten quotes by Dee Hock
#87. We are now at a point in time when the ability to receive, utilize, store, transform and transmit data - the lowest cognitive form - has expanded literally beyond comprehension. Understanding and wisdom are largely forgotten as we struggle under an avalanche of data and information. #Quote by Dee Hock
Forgotten quotes by David G. Hartwell
#88. You would have me burn your enemies for the glory of your kingdom, little fleck? In a thousand years Tadroth will be only a legend. In two thousand, even the legend will be forgotten. When you and all you make are dust in a grave, only I will remain. Why should I care how many kings rule this land for a season? Why should I care if your Serian lives or dies? #Quote by David G. Hartwell
Forgotten quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#89. If we forget our past," the speaker was saying, "we won't remember our future and it will be as well for we won't have one." The General heard some of these words gradually. He had forgotten history and he didn't intend to remember it again. He had forgotten the name and face of his wife and the names and faces of his children or even if he had a wife and children, and he had forgotten the names of places and the places themselves and what had happened at them. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Forgotten quotes by Darlene Schacht
#90. Going on and on about his faults wouldn't serve any purpose, but that's what I did. I took count of his faults and kept track of each one. I had forgotten what 1 Corinthians says about love: "It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs" (13:5 NIV). Record keeping damages our hearts and feeds the root of bitterness within us, while love heals #Quote by Darlene Schacht
Forgotten quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#91. Like glimpses of forgotten dreams. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Forgotten quotes by Franz Kafka
#92. Sometimes he mulled over the idea that the next time the door opened he would take control of the family affairs as he had done in the past; these musings led him once more after such a long interval to conjure up the figures of the boss, the head clerk, the salesmen, the apprentices, the dullard of an office manager, two or three friends from other firms, a sweet and fleeting memory of a chambermaid in one of the rural hotels, a cashier in a milliner's shop whom he had wooed earnestly but too slowly- they all appeared mixed up with strangers or nearly forgotten people, but instead of helping him and his family they were each and every one unapproachable, and he was relieved when they evaporated. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Forgotten quotes by Ivan Illich
#93. Industrial innovations are costly, and managers must justify their high cost by producing measurable proof of their
superiority ... [P]eriodic innovations in goods or tools foster the belief that anything new will be proven better. This belief has become an integral part of the modern world view. It is forgotten that whenever a society lives by this delusion, each marketed unit generates more wants than it satisfies. If new things are made because they are better, then the things most people use are not quite good. New models constantly renovate poverty. The consumer feels the lag between what he has and what he ought to get. He believes that products can be made measurably more valuable and allows himself to be constantly re-educated for their consumption. The "better" replaces the "good" as the fundamental normative concept. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Forgotten quotes by Jarod Kintz
#94. Getting a rejection letter from a place you've been thinking about is bad enough, but how shitty do I feel getting a rejection letter from some place I don't even remember applying to? That's like a homeless person walking up to me and saying, "You don't know me, but in case you've forgotten, you're a loser. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Forgotten quotes by John Prendergast
#95. There is a long and successful tradition of popular movements in the U.S. and elsewhere having an impact on crises in forgotten places. #Quote by John Prendergast

Forgotten quotes by Malcolm Bradbury
#99. If Caribbean writers have one single unifying theme, it is a strong sense of place, and of home. There is also - always, beneath the humour, which is a West Indian characteristic - a sadness: an awareness of a past that can never really be forgotten, or forgiven. #Quote by Malcolm Bradbury
Forgotten quotes by Liya Kebede
#100. The message of our campaign is "Make every mother and child count". This campaign is not just about health. It is also a powerful call for radical progress in women's rights and the rights of their children. Too often, the health of mothers and children does not count. In too many parts of the world, they are forgotten. #Quote by Liya Kebede
Forgotten quotes by Jacques Derrida
#101. These two poles, the unconditional and the conditional, are absolutely heterogeneous, and must remain irreducible to one another. They are nonetheless indissociable: if one wants, and it is necessary, forgiveness to become effective, concrete, historic; if one wants it to arrive, to happen by changing things, it is necessary that this purity engage itself in a series of conditions of all kinds (psychosociological, political, etc.). It is between these two poles, irreconcilable but indissociable, that decisions and responsibilities are to be taken. Yet despite all the confusions which reduce forgiveness to amnesty or to amnesia, to acquittal or prescription, to the work of mourning or some political therapy of reconciliation, in short to some historical ecology, it must never be forgotten, nevertheless, that all of that refers to a certain idea of pure and unconditional forgiveness, without which this discourse would not have the least meaning. What complicates the question of 'meaning' is again what I suggested a moment ago: pure and unconditional forgiveness, in order to have its own meaning, must have no 'meaning', no finality, even no intelligibility. It is a madness of the impossible. #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Forgotten quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#102. Unexpected discorporation was always rare on Mars; Martian taste in such matters called for life to be a rounded whole, with physical death taking place at the appropriate and selected instant. This artist, however, had become so preoccupied with his work that he had forgotten to come in out of the cold; by the time his absence was noticed his body was hardly fit to eat. He himself had not noticed his own discorporation and had gone right on composing his sequence. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Forgotten quotes by Mandy Hale
#103. When you live in the present, the past is forgotten & the future takes care of itself. #Quote by Mandy Hale
Forgotten quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#104. Let your heart shine even more than your face. The beautiful contents of your heart can never be forgotten, but your face will be a history. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Forgotten quotes by Richelle Mead
#105. In this one terrified moment, my mind couldn't focus on any of it. "I've forgotten everything."
"No, you haven't." His voice in the darkness was calm and reassuring. He smoothed back my hair and pressed one of those half kisses to my forehead. "Just relax and focus."
"His reasonable words centered me and allowed the gears of logic that ran my life to take over again. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Forgotten quotes by Alix E. Harrow
#106. I thought I'd forgotten, but the memories were crisp as photographs. I wondered dispassionately if they'd always been there, lurking just out of sight and whispering their fears to me. If behind every good girl lurked a good threat. #Quote by Alix E. Harrow
Forgotten quotes by Robert W. Welch, Jr.
#107. All alone in a committee room of the Senate Office Building in Washington, I was reading the dry typewritten pages in an unpublished report of an almost forgotten congressional committee hearing. #Quote by Robert W. Welch, Jr.
Forgotten quotes by Tillie Cole
#108. Alton nodded. "But why did we have to wait for the cherry blossoms to come out first?"

Taking a deep breath, I explained, "Because Poppymin was just like the cherry blossom, Alt. She only had a short life, like they do, but the beauty that she brought in that time will never ever be forgotten. Because nothing so beautiful can last forever. She was a blossom petal, a butterfly … a shooting star … she was perfect … her life was short … but she was mine."
I took in a breath and whispered finally, "Just as I was hers. #Quote by Tillie Cole
Forgotten quotes by Charles Dickens
#109. There were some broken men among these debtors who had been in jail so long, and were so miserable and destitute of friends, so dead to the world, and utterly forgotten and uncared for, that they implored their jailers not to set them free, and to send them, if need were, to some other place of custody. But #Quote by Charles Dickens
Forgotten quotes by Robertson Davies
#110. I wanted to get away,' said she; 'everybody wants to plague and worry me about nothing. They'll be all right tomorrow. What's worrying them?'
'They are sacrificing to our Canadian God,' said Solly. 'We all believe that if we fret and abuse ourselves sufficiently, Providence will take pity and smile upon anything we attempt. A light heart, or a consciousness of desert, attracts ill luck. You have been away from your native land too long. You have forgotten our folkways. Listen to that gang over there; they are scanning the heavens and hoping aloud that it won't rain tomorrow. That is to placate the Mean Old Man in the Sky, and persuade him to be kind to us. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Forgotten quotes by Tim Maleeny
#111. A. E. Maxwell wrote one of the smartest, most consistent PI series in recent memory. Big plots, great villains, and a kickass private eye with plenty of humanity. The toughness of Robert B. Parker's early Spenser novels blended with the wry humor and scope of Ross Thomas. Wholly original, endlessly entertaining. The books of A. E. Maxwell are a forgotten treasure. #Quote by Tim Maleeny
Forgotten quotes by Stacia Kane
#112. But she'd forgotten. She'd forgotten because she'd been so busy thinking of her own fucking feelings. As if she fucking mattered. #Quote by Stacia Kane

Forgotten quotes by Marlen Komar
#114. There are a few things so beautiful in life that I want to bottle up and leave forgotten in a drawer (because all treasures are meant to be forgotten). #Quote by Marlen Komar
Forgotten quotes by Karin Fossum
#115. We're not really afraid to die. We're only afraid of being forgotten. We know that we'll be forgotten, and the idea is unbearable, don't you agree? As time passes we become infrequent visitors in the minds of those left behind. The ones who clear out the house & divide up the belongings. Throw away the rubbish. And forget. If we knew that every evening someone lit a candle and sat down to think – thought about is if only for a few seconds – then we could depart this earth in peace. No-one will light a candle for me. Who would do that? #Quote by Karin Fossum
Forgotten quotes by Russell L. Ackoff
#116. Traditional education focuses on teaching, not learning. It incorrectly assumes that for every ounce of teaching there is an ounce of learning by those who are taught. However, most of what we learn before, during, and after attending schools is learned without its being taught to us. A child learns such fundamental things as how to walk, talk, eat, dress, and so on without being taught these things. Adults learn most of what they use at work or at leisure while at work or leisure. Most of what is taught in classroom settings is forgotten, and much or what is remembered is irrelevant. #Quote by Russell L. Ackoff
Forgotten quotes by Nikki Rowe
#117. It takes a heck of a lot of courage to stay true to yourself when the world has forgotten it's way. #Quote by Nikki Rowe

Forgotten quotes by Susan Cooper
#119. For half an hour they poked about in a happy dusty dream, through the junk and broken furniture and ornaments. It was like reading the story of somebody's life, Jane thought, as she gazed at the tiny matchstick masts of the ship sailing motionless forever in the green glass bottle. All these things had been used once, had been part of every day in the house below. Someone has slept on the bed, anxiously watched the minutes on the clock, pounced joyfully on each magazine as it arrived. But those people were long dead, or gone away, and now the oddments of their lives were piled up here, forgotten. She found herself feeling rather sad. #Quote by Susan Cooper
Forgotten quotes by Angelina Jolie
#120. Over 20 million children of conflict are out of school. Education is often forgotten. #Quote by Angelina Jolie
Forgotten quotes by Gerard Donovan
#121. I saw battles in their eyes long forgotten by many,and never known to some, and observed some of them fall with him into that hole in the ground, I mean the part of them that remembered the fear and the rubble of distant towns, or the part that had hoped for better things afterwards. The soldier who fights always hopes that way,my grandfather said, but its those who dont fight who get to decide what things will come #Quote by Gerard Donovan
Forgotten quotes by Brandon Sanderson

Forgotten quotes by Richelle Mead
#123. That easy, confident grin returned. "Don't worry, it's easily forgotten."
"Well," I said huffily, "it shouldn't be that easily forgotten."
"Would you like it better if I say I'll eventually forget it but not without a great deal of struggle and torment?"
"Yes."
"Done. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Forgotten quotes by W.P. Kinsella
#124. He cranks up his arm, rears back, and throws, and the ball, taking an even more perfect path than it took off the bat, travels in a white arc, seeming to leave behind a line like a streak of forgotten rainbow as it drops over the fence, silent as a star falling into a distant ocean. #Quote by W.P. Kinsella
Forgotten quotes by Atul Purohit
#125. I know that in every age, in every place, love is certain to be present, anonymous to be found and concrete to be held onto, so there is no reason to tremble because life on earth is nothing but one brief moment, a moment truly worth living for, which becomes even wealthier when it is for someone like you. I have found that out by being with you. Having you in my life has brought me more happiness than a lifetime could bring. You've touched my life and my soul, so deeply in your own way that you've helped me laugh and become my true self. I feel like I've searched my whole life and I have finally found the one meant for me and even though our time together was short, it will not be forgotten but remembered forever and ever. I pray to the almighty that everything in future comes out perfect for us. #Quote by Atul Purohit
Forgotten quotes by Alexander Lowen
#126. Therapy takes us backward into a forgotten past, but this was not a safe and secure time, else we would not have emerged from it scarred by battle wounds and armoured in self-defense. #Quote by Alexander Lowen
Forgotten quotes by Marie Kondo
#127. The socks and stockings stored in your drawer are essentially on holiday. They take a brutal beating in their daily work, trapped between your foot and your shoe, enduring pressure and friction to protect your precious feet. The time they spend in your drawer is their only chance to rest. But if they are folded over, balled up, or tied, they are always in a state of tension, their fabric stretched and their elastic pulled. They roll about and bump into each other every time the drawer is opened and closed. Any socks and stockings unfortunate enough to get pushed to the back of the drawer are often forgotten for so long that their elastic stretches beyond recovery. #Quote by Marie Kondo
Forgotten quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#128. As people, we have forgotten to be people. We know how to be doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers, we know what to do, we know what to buy, but how do I just sit with you in your pain? How do I sit with you in your vulnerability and not betray you, not abuse you? We do not know how to do that, even in our homes. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Forgotten quotes by Harpo Marx
#129. Many years ago a very wise man named Bernard Baruch took me aside and put his arm around my shoulder. "Harpo my boy," he said, "I'm going to give you three pieces of advice, three things you should always remember." My heart jumped and I glowed with expectation. I was going to hear the magic password to a rich, full life from the master himself. "Yes sir?" I said. And he told me the three things. I regret that I've forgotten what they were. #Quote by Harpo Marx
Forgotten quotes by Tom Stoppard
#130. An artist is the magician put among men to gratify
capriciously
their urge for immortality. The temples are built and brought down around him, continuously and contiguously, from Troy to the fields of Flanders. If there is any meaning in any of it, it is in what survives as art, yes even in the celebration of tyrants, yes even in the celebration of nonentities. What now of the Trojan War if it had been passed over by the artist's touch? Dust. A forgotten expedition prompted by Greek merchants looking for new markets. A minor redistribution of broken pots. But it is we who stand enriched, by a tale of heroes, of a golden apple, a wooden horse, a face that launched a thousand ships
and above all, of Ulysses, the wanderer, the most human, the most complete of all heroes
husband, father, son, lover, farmer, soldier, pacifist, politician, inventor and adventurer ... #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Forgotten quotes by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
#131. He stopped breathing, literally stopped breathing for several seconds. His brain had
stopped working as soon as she had unzipped his jeans. His heart was going into
overdrive because somewhere in the last few minutes, it had forgotten how to beat in
regular intervals. And now his lungs were giving in, blatantly refusing to take in any
air. It was like every organ was confused and electrified by the sensations pounding
through his body; like they were all shouting: "Hey, what's going on down there,
Penis?"
But Penis was too wrapped up in Danny's mouth to respond so they all just continued
to malfunction. #Quote by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
Forgotten quotes by Pope Francis
#132. (Rom 8:22)We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters. #Quote by Pope Francis
Forgotten quotes by Paul Krugman

Forgotten quotes by Gwendolyn Womack
#134. According to Plato, Socrates believed all knowledge came from a divine state, but humans had forgotten it. Most lived in a cave of ignorance, but one could become enlightened by climbing out of the darkness and understanding the divide between the spiritual and material planes. #Quote by Gwendolyn Womack
Forgotten quotes by Julia Quinn
#135. He still had dreams about it. Certainly not nightmares - it could not be worth the energy. But every month or so he woke up from one of those annoying visions where he was back at school (rather absurdly at his current age of eight-and-twenty). It was always of a similar nature. He looked down at his schedule and suddenly realized he'd forgotten to attend Latin class for an entire term. Or arrived for an exam without his trousers. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Forgotten quotes by Stephen King
#136. Although I don't know for sure, I'd bet my dog and lot that John Grisham never worked for the mob. All of that is total fabrication (and total fabrication is the fiction-writer's purest delight). He was once a young lawyer, though, and he has clearly forgotten none of the struggle. Nor has he forgotten the location of the various financial pitfalls and honeytraps that make the field of corporate law so difficult. Using plainspun humor as a brilliant counterpoint and never substituting cant for story, he sketches a world of Darwinian struggle where all the savages wear three-piece suits. And - here's the good part - this is a world impossible not to believe. Grisham has been there, spied out the land and the enemy positions, and brought back a full report. He told the truth of what he knew, and for that if nothing else, he deserves every buck The Firm made. #Quote by Stephen King
Forgotten quotes by Richard Taylor
#137. Most people are, in the most ordinary sense, very limited. They pass their time, day after day, in idle, passive pursuits, just looking at things - at games, television, whatever. Or they fill the hours talking, mostly about nothing of significance - of comings and goings, of who is doing what, of the weather, of things forgotten almost as soon as they are mentioned. They have no aspirations for themselves beyond getting through another doing more or less what they did yesterday. They walk across the stage of life, leaving everything about as it was when they entered, achieving nothing, aspiring to nothing, having never a profound or even original thought... This is what is common, usual, typical, indeed normal. Relatively few rise above such a plodding existence. #Quote by Richard Taylor
Forgotten quotes by Harper Lee
#138. It was not always like this, I swear it wasn't. People used to trust each other for some reason, I've forgotten why. They didn't watch each other like hawks then. #Quote by Harper Lee

#139. Be careful with your words, once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten. #Quote by Carl Sandburg
Forgotten quotes by Brian Jacques
#140. The Land of Dreams, that mystical realm,
where the oddest of visions appear,
come wander through scenes of joyful peace,
or stampeded through nightmares of fear.
Dare we open those secret doors,
down dusty paths of mind,
in long-forgotten corners,
what memories we'll find.
Who rules o'er the Kingdom of Night,
where all is not what it seems?
'Tis I, the Weaver of Tales,
for I am the Dreamer of Dreams! #Quote by Brian Jacques
Forgotten quotes by Mata Amritanandamayi
#141. Today people live to work rather than work for a living. They have forgotten their true goal in life. Subsequently they have forgotten their dharma. There is no communication between hearts, there is no sharing. Having lost contact with other's hearts, we become totally isolated. But in truth we are not isolated islands, we are links that form one chain. #Quote by Mata Amritanandamayi
Forgotten quotes by Donna Tartt
#142. We looked at each other, for a long strange moment that I've never forgotten, actually, like two animals meeting at twilight, during which some clear, personable spark seemed to fly up through his eyes and I saw the creature he really was - and he, I believe, saw me. For an instant we were wired together and humming, like two engines on the same circuit. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Forgotten quotes by A.J. Liebling
#143. Any city may have one period of magnificence, like Boston or New Orleans or San Francisco, but it takes a real one to keep renewing itself until the past is perennially forgotten. #Quote by A.J. Liebling
Forgotten quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#144. It is not a gain that guilt should be wholly forgotten. On the contrary, it is loss and perdition. But it is a gain to win an inner intensity of heart through a deeper and deeper inner sorrowing over guilt. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Forgotten quotes by Amy Levy
#145. A curious, dreamlike sensation stole over Gertrude at finding herself once again in a roomful of people; and as an old war-horse is said to become excited at the sound of battle, so she felt the social instincts rise strongly within her as the familiar, forgotten pageant of nods and becks and wreathed smiles burst anew upon her. #Quote by Amy Levy

Forgotten quotes by Elizabeth Hoyt
#147. And how closely related to you is Cousin Beatrice?"
Reynaud gave him a look. "Not that close.
"Glad to hear it." Vale dropped into a cushioned chair. "I hope she recovers fully so that you can then propose to her. Because I tell you now, matrimony truly is a blessed state, enjoyed by all men of good sense and halfway adequate bedroom skills."
"Thank you for that edifying thought," Reynaud growled.
Vale waved his glass. "Think nothing of it. I say, you haven't forgotten how to treat a lady in the bedroom, have you?"
"Oh, for God's sake!"
"You've been out of refined society for years and years now. I could give you some pointers, should you need them. #Quote by Elizabeth Hoyt
Forgotten quotes by Eckhart Tolle

primary, all else secondary. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Forgotten quotes by Neil Gaiman
#149. If you move and act in the material world, then the material world acts on you. Pain hurts, just as greed intoxicates and lust burns. We may not die easy and we sure as hell don't die well, but we can die. If we're still loved and remembered, something else a whole lot like us comes along and the whole damn thing starts all over again. And if we're forgotten, we're done. #Quote by Neil Gaiman

Forgotten quotes by Eleanor Morse
#153. It seemed that white people were the ones who believed in divine justice. That was because long ago, they'd come with their guns and greed and taken what they wanted. They'd long since forgotten what they'd done, and now they thought the land had always been theirs. #Quote by Eleanor Morse
Forgotten quotes by Robert Jordan
#154. On a day of fire and blood, a tattered banner waved above Dumai's wells, bearing the ancient symbol of Aes Sedai. On a day of fire and blood and the one power, as prophecy had suggested, the unstained tower, broken, bent knee to the forgotten sign. The first nine Aes Sedai swore fealty to the Dragon Reborn, and the world was changed forever. #Quote by Robert Jordan

Forgotten quotes by Timothy Snyder
#156. After Tony [Judt]'s death, in August 2010, I toured to discuss the book we had written together, which he had entitle 'Thinking the Twentieth Century.' I realized as I traveled around the United States that its subject had been forgotten all too well. In hotel rooms, I watched Russian television toy with the traumatic American history of race, suggesting that Barack Obama had been born in Africa. It struck me as odd that the American entertainer Donald Trump picked up the theme not long thereafter. #Quote by Timothy Snyder

Ian smiled with lazy wickedness. "I remember, but you seem to have forgotten that you kissed me first. And thoroughly enjoyed it."
Caught off guard, I flushed. Hey, I'd been celibate for over four years at the time....I wasn't thinking clearly!

Apparently a great many people have forgotten that the framers of our Constitution went to such great effort to create an independent judicial branch that would not be subject to retaliation by either the executive branch or the legislative branch because of some decision made by those judges. #Quote by Sandra Day O'Connor
Forgotten quotes by Judith McNaught
#160. At the moment Ormsley looked on the verge of tears as his damp, faded blue eyes roved almost lovingly over Ian's face. "Good afternoon, my lord," he intoned formally, but the ecstatic expression on his face gaze Ian the impression the servant was restraining himself from wrapping his arms around him. "And-and may I say-" The elderly man stopped, his voice hoarse with emotion, and cleared his throat. "And may I say how very-how very very good it is to have you here at-" His voice choked, he flushed, and Ian's ire at his grandfather was momentarily forgotten.
"Good afternoon, Ormsley," Ian said, grinning at the look of sublime pleasure that crossed Ormsley's lined face when Ian knew his name. Sensing the butler was about to bow again, Ian put out his hand instead, forcing the loyal retainer to shake hands with him. "I trust," Ian joked gently, "that you've conquered your habit of overindulging in French brandy?"
The faded old eyes brightened like diamonds at this added proof that Ian's father had spoken of him to Ian.
"Welcome home. Welcome home at last, my lord," Ormsley said hoarsely, returning Ian's handshake.
"I'm only staying a few hours," Ian told him calmly, and the butler's hand went a little limp with disappointment. He recovered himself, however, and escorted Ian down a wide, oak-paneled hall. A small army of footmen and housemaids seemed to be lurking about, ostensibly dusting mirrors, paneling, and floors. As Ian passed, several of them stole lon #Quote by Judith McNaught

Forgotten quotes by Wendy Higgins
#162. But I thought we might get naked, just like Adam and Eve, so natural..."
I gasped. I'd forgotten all about that part of my conversation with Scott! Utter humiliation. I curled into a tighter ball.
"Oh, come on. You haven't even thanked me yet."
"For what?" I asked, still not looking.
"For saving you from snogging that plonker. You didn't really fancy him, did you?"
My cheeks burned, and I was glad to be turned away from him. I kept my mouth shut.
"So that's it, then?" he asked. I ignored him. "I always wondered what it would feel like."
That made me curious enough to turn to him.
"What what would feel like?" I asked.
"Rejection." He seemed in the midst of a revelation.
"What are you saying? That no girl has ever told you no?"
"Not one."
Well, that explained a lot.
"And what about you?" I asked. "Haven't you ever stopped or said no to a girl?"
He laughed as if I'd said something ridiculous. "Why would I do that?"
"Lots of reasons," I said. "Never mind, just go to sleep. We have a long day tomorrow." I turned away from him again, punching the thick pillow and laying my head down.
"I suppose I did refuse one, but she doesn't count," he said.
"Why not?"
"Because she was Neph."
Discomfort gnawed at me.
"This must be the part where I take a cold shower?" he asked.
"Good idea."
When he was in the bathroom with the water running, I jumped down and changed into my pajamas. The #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Forgotten quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#163. Gideon rose up to his full height, watching their progress as they faded into the night. He then turned his diamondlike eyes until they narrowed on the female Demon who had remained so still and quiet that she had gone unremembered. An interesting feat, considering the remarkable presence of the beauty.
"You have grown strong, Legna," he remarked quietly.
"In only a decade? I am sure it has not made much of a difference."
"To teleport me from such a great distance took respectful skill and strength. You well know it."
"Thank you. I shall have to remember to feel weak and fluttery inside now that you complimented me."
Gideon narrowed his eyes coldly on her. "You sound like that acerbic little human. It does not become you."
"I sound like myself," Legna countered, her irritation crackling through his thoughts as the emotion overflowed her control. "Or have you forgotten that I am far too immature for your tastes?"
"I never said such a thing."
"You did. You said I was too young to even begin to understand you." She lifted her chin, so lost in her wounded pride that she spoke before she thought. "At least I was never so immature that Jacob had to punish me for stalking a human."
Gideon's spine went extremely straight, his eyes glittering with warning as she hit home on the still-raw wound. "Maturity had nothing to do with that, and you well know it. It is below you to be so petty, Magdelegna."
"I see, so I am groveling around in t #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank

#164. Never can the innate power of a work be hidden or locked away. A work of art can be forgotten by time; it can be forbidden and rejected but the elemental will always prevail over the ephemeral. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Forgotten quotes by Paul Krautmann
#165. Unthankful people think they are the centre of the universe. They compare themselves with those who have more. They have forgotten God. Thankful people know who really is the centre of the universe. They compare themselves with those who have less. They always remember God. #Quote by Paul Krautmann
Forgotten quotes by J.K. Rowling
#166. He'd forgotten all about the people in cloaks until he passed a group of them next to the baker's. He eyed them angrily as he passed. He didn't know why, but they made him uneasy. This bunch were whispering excitedly, too, and he couldn't see a single collecting tin. It was on his way back past them, clutching a large doughnut in a bag, that he caught a few words of what they were saying. "The Potters, that's right, that's what I heard - " " - yes, their son, Harry - " Mr. #Quote by J.K. Rowling

Forgotten quotes by Jon Krakauer
#170. At eighteen, in a dream, he saw himself plodding through jungles, chinning up the ledges of cliffs, wandering through the romantic waste places of the world. No man with any of the juices of boyhood in him has forgotten those dreams. The peculiar thing about Everett Ruess was that he went out and did the things he dreamed about, not simply for a two-weeks' vacation in the civilized and trimmed wonderlands, but for months and years in the very midst of wonder... #Quote by Jon Krakauer

Forgotten quotes by William Bridges
#173. Treating ourselves like appliances that can be unplugged and plugged in again at will or cars that stop and start with the twist of a key, we have forgotten the importance of fallow time and winter and rests in music. We have abandoned a whole system of dealing with the neutral zone through ritual, and we have tried to deal with personal change as though it were a matter of some kind of readjustment. #Quote by William Bridges
Forgotten quotes by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
#174. Life isn't really linear. Although it's generally perceived that way. The stories we tell are woven like snakes around a divining rod. A center of time containing all that's ever been told and heard. Remembered and forgotten. Lost and found. Our pasts, presents and futures are unwound, stretched flat, cut into pieces and held up with human arms. #Quote by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
Forgotten quotes by Jerry Della Femina
#175. In our quest to tweet, like, and trend, we have forgotten that brands can be built through advertising. Ads can generate big ideas that can never be trumped by tactics. That is the magic of an ad, and that is what is missing from many ads today. #Quote by Jerry Della Femina
Forgotten quotes by Barbara Delinsky
#176. He had forgotten that children were miracles - and it didn't matter that he had originally wanted to wait longer before having a child, he had been in the delivery room when Julia was born. He knew the awe that came with the emergence of a fully formed, perfectly functioning, miniature human being that he had helped make. #Quote by Barbara Delinsky
Forgotten quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#177. When he answered, he went all the way back to beginnings. He instructed me about the individual, about freedom and dignity, about the human being as subject and the fact that one may not turn him into an object. "Don't you remember how furious you would get as a little boy when Mama knew better what was good for you? Even how far one can act like this with children is a real problem. It is a philosophical problem, but philosophy does not concern itself with children. It leaves them to pedagogy, where they're not in very good hands. Philosophy has forgotten about children." He smiled at me. "Forgotten them forever, not just sometimes, the way I forget about you."
"But . . ."
"But with adults I see absolutely no justification for setting other people's views of what is good for them above their own ideas of what is good for themselves."
"Not even if they themselves are happy about it later?"
He shook his head. "We're not talking about happiness, we're talking about dignity and freedom. Even as a little boy, you knew the difference. It was no comfort to you that your mother was always right. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink

Forgotten quotes by Eben Alexander
#180. And struggles to understand. But - again, paradoxically - Om is "human" as well - even more human than you and I are. Om understands and sympathizes with our human situation more profoundly and personally than we can even imagine because Om knows what we have forgotten, and understands the terrible burden it is to live with amnesia of the Divine for even a moment. #Quote by Eben Alexander

Forgotten quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#184. Don't leave me, Bertie. I'm lost."
"What do you mean, lost?"
"I came out for a walk and suddenly discovered after a mile or two that I didn't know where on earth I was. I've been wandering round in circles for hours."
"Why didn't you ask the way?"
"I can't speak a word of French."
"Well, why didn't you call a taxi?"
"I suddenly discovered I'd left all my money at my hotel."
"You could have taken a cab and paid it when you got to the hotel."
"Yes, but I suddenly discovered, dash it, that I'd forgotten its name."
And there in a nutshell you have Charles Edward Biffen. As vague and woollen-headed a blighter as ever bit a sandwich. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Forgotten quotes by A. Curtiss
#185. On rare occasions there comes along a profound original, an odd little book that appears out of nowhere, from the pen of some obscure storyteller, and once you have read it, you will never go completely back to where you were before. The kind of book you may hesitate to lend for fear you might miss its company. The kind of book that echoes from the heart of some ancient knowing, and whispers from time's forgotten cave that life may be more than it seems, and less. #Quote by A. Curtiss
Forgotten quotes by Mark Twain
#186. There is in life only one moment and in eternity only one. It is so brief that it is represented by the fleeting of a luminous mote through the thin ray of sunlight - and it is visible but a fraction of a second. The moments that preceded it have been lived, are forgotten and are without value; the moments that have not been lived have no existence and will have no value except in the moment that each shall be lived. While you are asleep you are dead; and whether you stay dead an hour or a billion years the time to you is the same. #Quote by Mark Twain
Forgotten quotes by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
#187. After getting dressed at warp speed, I actually managed to drive all the way to high school before I realized I'd forgotten my morning coffee. Mystery, intrigue, and naked dreams aside, that didn't bode well for my chances at making it through the morning without killing myself. Or someone else. #Quote by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Forgotten quotes by Graham Hancock
#188. We truly are a species with amnesia. We have forgotten a very important part of our story. #Quote by Graham Hancock
Forgotten quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#189. It must never be forgotten that for non-modern man - whether he be ancient or contemporary - the very stuff of the Universe has a sacred aspect. The cosmos speaks to man and all of its phenomena contain meaning. They are symbols of a higher degree of reality which the cosmic domain at once veils and reveals. The very structure of the cosmos contains a spiritual message for man and is thereby a revelation coming from the same source as religion itself. Both are the manifestations of the Universal Intellect, the Logos, and the cosmos itself is an integral part of that total Universe of meaning in which man lives and dies. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Forgotten quotes by David Levithan
#190. champagne, n.



You appear at the foot of the bed with a bottle of champagne, and I have no idea why. I search my mind desperately for an occasion I've forgotten - is this some obscure anniversary or, even worse, a not-so-obscure one? Then I think you have something to tell me, some good news to share, but your smile is silent, cryptic. I sit up in bed, ask you what's going on, and you shake your head, as if to say that nothing's going on, as if to pretend that we usually start our Wednesday mornings with champagne.

You touch the bottle to my leg - I feel the cool condensation and the glass, the fact that the bottle must have been sleeping all night in the refrigerator without me noticing. You have long-stemmed glasses in you other hand, and you place them on the nightstand, beside the uncommenting clock, the box of kleenex, the tumbler of water.

"The thing about champagne," you say, unfailing the cork, unwinding its wire restraint, "is that it is the ultimate associative object. Every time you open a bottle of champagne, it's a celebration, so there's no better way of starting a celebration than opening a bottle of champagne. Every time you sip it, you're sipping from all those other celebrations. The joy accumulates over time."

You pop the cork. The bubbles rise. I feel some of the spray on my skin. You pour.

"But why?" I ask as you hand me my glass.

You raise yours and ask, "Why not? What better w #Quote by David Levithan
Forgotten quotes by Robert Goolrick
#191. It was a story of people who don't choose life over death until it's too late to know the difference, people whose goodness is forgotten, left behind like a child's toy in a dusty playroom, people who see many things and remember only a handful of the them and learn from even fewer, people who hurt themselves, who wreck their own lives and then go on to wreck the lives of those around them, who cannot be helped or assuaged by love or kindness or luck or charm, who forget kindness, the feeling and practice of it, and how it can save even the worst, most misshapen life from despair. It was just a story about despair. #Quote by Robert Goolrick

Forgotten quotes by Megan Abbott
#193. This was their favorite place to meet. It always felt hidden, forgotten. The gold-lettered World Book encyclopedias from the 1980s. The smell of old glue and crumbling paper, the industrial carpet burning her palms.
It reminded her of what you did when you were a little girl, making little burrows and hideaways. Like boys did with forts. Eli and his friend, stacking sofa cushions, pretending to be sharpshooters. With girls, you didn't call them forts, though it was the same. #Quote by Megan Abbott
Forgotten quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#194. Painting seems to be to the eye what dancing is to the limbs. When that has educated the frame to self-possession, to nimbleness,to grace, the steps of the dancing-master are better forgotten; so painting teaches me the splendor of color and the expression of form, and as I see many pictures and higher genius in the art, I see the boundless opulence of the pencil, the indifferency in which the artist stands free to choose out of the possible forms. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forgotten quotes by William Faulkner
#195. Ay, grief goes, fades; we know that–but ask the tear ducts if they have forgotten how to weep. #Quote by William Faulkner

#196. I think the average American has forgotten the great feel for liberty and accountability that the framers of the Constitution believed. #Quote by Joe Jamail
Forgotten quotes by Sabahattin Ali
#197. The pain of losing something precious - be it happiness or material wealth – can be forgotten over time. But our missed opportunities never leave us, and every time they come back to haunt us, we ache. Or perhaps what haunts us is that nagging thought that things might have turned out differently. Because without that thought, we would put it down to fate and accept it. #Quote by Sabahattin Ali
Forgotten quotes by Keri Lake
#198. Outside the window, broken and abandoned husks dotted the landscape, set against the gray, dishwater sky. Scarred and beaten, the perfect metaphor for the people who lived within its forgotten neighborhoods, Detroit was like an abused kid, just waiting for the day someone would come along and give a fuck about it. The third world city of America. #Quote by Keri Lake
Forgotten quotes by Jerry Bridges
#199. Pharisee-type believers unconsciously think they've earned God's blessing through their behavior. Guilt-laden believers are sure they've forfeited God's blessing through disobedience or lack of discipline. Both have forgotten the meaning of grace - God's unmerited favor to those who deserve only His wrath. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Forgotten quotes by David Abram
#200. Does the human intellect, or "reason," really spring us free from our inherence in the depths of this wild proliferation of forms? Or on the contrary, is the human intellect rooted in, and secretly borne by, our forgotten contact with the multiple nonhuman shapes that surround us on every hand? #Quote by David Abram
