„When I'm gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures.“
„All my people sing of are memories. And so I will remember this death. It will burden me as it does not burden my fellow students - I must not let that change. I must not become like them. I'll remember that every sin, every death, every sacrifice, is for freedom.“
— Pierce Brown American writer 1988
Ch. 20: The House Mars
„When I remember my family, I always remember their backs. They were always indignantly leaving places. That’s the way I remember them, heading for an exit.“
— John Cheever American novelist and short story writer 1912 - 1982
Quoted by Susan Cheever, Home before Dark Houghton Mifflin (1984).
„You're probably thinkin’ that you're gonna change me;
In some ways well maybe you might.
Scrub me down, dress me up.
Oh but no matter what,
Remember, I'm still a guy.“
— Brad Paisley American country music singer 1972
I'm Still a Guy, written by Brad Paisley, Kelley Lovelace, and Lee Thomas Miller
„If we as people can remember this much from seeing one of my shows, then we are already well on the way toward progress in my opinion.“
— Manuel Rivera-Ortiz American photographer 1968
Context: Life is pretty rough for the nearly 400 million people in India who still live on $2 USD or less a day-they are mostly what this show is about. In America by comparison, the children of the poor may not have access to the latest Dolce & Gabbana or Armani suit, but they at least predominantly have shelter, even though it may not be a castle but it is a warm place to rest and recuperate. So many of the children I come across in such countries as India live and sleep with their families on the street covered by a tarp or a piece of plastic or cardboard. They cry themselves to sleep at night from hunger. We are very lucky to be living in the U. S. and not there under similar conditions in a country like India, even if being poor here means living simply. If we as people can remember this much from seeing one of my shows, then we are already well on the way toward progress in my opinion.

„The community of man should be treated in the same way you would treat your community of brothers or fellow citizens.“

„The past, he said. The past is too much with me. And the past has made me useless. I have too much to remember—so much to remember that it becomes more important than the things there are to do. I’m living in the past and that is no way to live.“

— Wisława Szymborska Polish writer 1923 - 2012
Context: I remember it so clearly — how people, seeing me, would break off in midword. Laughter died. Lovers' hands unclasped. Children ran to their mothers. I didn't even know their short-lived names. And that song about a little green leaf — no one ever finished it near me. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"
„When people thank and tell you how much you've helped them, what they say has nothing to do with you. This is just their way of expressing joy in their own experience. Remember this, too, when people complain or criticize.“
— Ken McLeod Canadian lama 1948
