Quotes and Poetry

“People come and go in your life but they never leave your dreams. Once they are in your subconscious, they are immortal.” – Patricia Hampl

“Memories of the past are not memories of facts but memories of your imaginings of the facts.” – Philip Roth

Strength in What Remains

Your memory is made of light an amazing line in the poem “I remember you as you were” by Pablo Neruda

Thinking and talking about death need not be morbid; they may be quite the opposite. Ignorance and fear of death overshadow life, while knowing and accepting death erases this shadow. ~Lily Pincus (via The Purpose Fairy)
