Thoughts for Thursday: Remembrance

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

As today is the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11, I thought about doing something patriotic, but I've done similar things more than once. Instead, I think today is a day to remember. So, this week's theme is Remembrance!

"Sharing tales of those we've lost is how we keep from really losing them."--Mitch Albom, For One More Day

"Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going."--Tennessee Williams

"Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart."--Washington Irving

"I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though so are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now."--Sophia Loren

"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it."--George Santayana

"Blessed are those who give without remembering. And blessed are those who take without forgetting."--Bernard Meltzer

What is your favorite quote about Rememberance? Do you have one to add?
