It's funny how insomnia has a way of hauling faded memories up from the cellar of the mind, unearthing buried bits of nostalgia from deep within and spreading the broken, jagged pieces out in front of you like a display of junk at a garage sale. It makes you feel cheap and guilty when you didn't do a thing in the world to kindle the dull burn in your veins or the sting in your eyes. Some nights the painful past unexpectedly pushes up through the floorboards like an ugly nightmarish weed, and by doing so, cultivates and nurtures an entirely new species of headache.Adam Young Faded Memories Sayings By Adam Young: It's funny how insomnia has a way of hauling faded memories up from the cellar
Separated by so much more than distance and lifestyle, even their memories of a shared childhood have faded from their minds.Tabitha Suzuma Faded Memories Sayings By Tabitha Suzuma: Separated by so much more than distance and lifestyle, even their memories of a shared
Mattia was right: the days had slipped over her skin like a solvent, one after the other, each removing a very thin layer of pigment from her tattoo, and from both of their memories. The outlines, like the circumstances, were still there, black and well delineated, but the colors had merged together until they faded into a dull, uniform tonality, a neutral absence of meaning.Paolo Giordano Faded Memories Sayings By Paolo Giordano: Mattia was right: the days had slipped over her skin like a solvent, one after
Memory can glean, but can never renew. It brings us joys faint as is the perfume of the flowers, faded and dried, of the summer that is gone.Henry Ward Beecher Faded Memories Sayings By Henry Ward Beecher: Memory can glean, but can never renew. It brings us joys faint as is the
As the years pass by, we'll glance at faded photographs recalling memories shared with special friends and family, never wanting it to end. Memories are the only thing left within the end." JudyM. William Phelps Faded Memories Sayings By M. William Phelps: As the years pass by, we'll glance at faded photographs recalling memories shared with special
Manage me, I am a mess, swept under the rug of yesterday's home improvement, a whimsical urge tossed aside for the easy reassurance of home and comfort. I am the photograph tucked away as a book-mark, in a book left half unread, once reopened to find memories crawling back into peripheral sight, faded, creased and lonely. I long to be admired, long to be held, torn and laughed at, laughed with, like a distant relative or an old friend breathing in their last breath. I missed the moment when time collapsed and memory was erased, replaced by finicky social experiments, lost in the blur of intoxication, sucked through multi-colored bendy-straws, making way for a spinning world where hub-caps stood still, but our vision didn't. If I could leave you with only one thing, it would be small, foldable, and made from trees, with a few careless words, scribbled in blue; Take a minute to learn me, take a moment to love me, because I need your love to live,and without it, I am nothing.Alex Gaskarth Faded Memories Sayings By Alex Gaskarth: Manage me, I am a mess, swept under the rug of yesterday's home improvement, a
Those of the Elven-race that lived still in Middle-earth waned and faded, and Men usurped the sunlight. Then the Quendi wandered in the lonely places of the great lands and the isles, and took to the moonlight and the starlight, and to the woods and caves, becoming as shadows and memories, save those who ever and anon set sail into the West and vanished from Middle-earth.J.R.R. Tolkien Faded Memories Sayings By J.R.R. Tolkien: Those of the Elven-race that lived still in Middle-earth waned and faded, and Men usurped
In my life I find that memories of the spirit linger and sweeten long after memories of the brain have faded.Harry Connick Jr. Faded Memories Sayings By Harry Connick Jr.: In my life I find that memories of the spirit linger and sweeten long after
Already many of the memories of the previous two weeks had faded: the smell of that small hotel in St. Andrews; that mixture of bacon cooking for breakfast and the lavender-scented soap in the bathroom; the air from the sea drifing across the golf course; the aroma of coffee in the coffee bar in South Street. She should have noted them down. She should have said something about all that and the light and the hills with sheep on them like small white stones.Alexander McCall Smith Faded Memories Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: Already many of the memories of the previous two weeks had faded: the smell of
[She] had heard it said that there was only one emotion which, in recollection, was capable of resurrecting the full immediacy and power of the original - one emotion that time could never fade, and that would drag you back any number of years into the pure, undiluted feeling, as if you were living it anew. It wasn't love ... and it wasn't hate, or anger, or happiness, or even grief. Memories of those were but echoes of the true feeling.
It was shame. Shame never faded.
Laini Taylor Faded Memories Sayings By Laini Taylor: [She] had heard it said that there was only one emotion which, in recollection, was
Somehow I cannot let it go yet, funeral though it is,
Let it remain back there on its nail suspended,
With pink, blue, yellow, all blanch'd, and the white now gray
and ashy,
One wither'd rose put years ago for thee, dear friend;
But I do not forget thee. Hast thou then faded?
Is the odor exhaled? Are the colors, vitalities, dead?
No, while memories subtly play - the past vivid as ever;
For but last night I woke, and in that spectral ring saw thee,
Thy smile, eyes, face, calm, silent, loving as ever:
So let the wreath hang still awhile within my eye-reach,
It is not yet dead to me, nor even pallid.
Walt Whitman Faded Memories Sayings By Walt Whitman: Somehow I cannot let it go yet, funeral though it is,Let it remain back there
He was glad some of the pain was fading, had already faded so much since the first year. But it seemed more to be a trade off: with the pain went details and memories. People had said, 'Time heals,' but he realized time didn't heal, time just eroded and confused, and he didn't think that was the same thing at all.Catherine O'Flynn Faded Memories Sayings By Catherine O'Flynn: He was glad some of the pain was fading, had already faded so much since
When all hopes of recognition or honor have faded into distant memory, when purity of heart meets sorrow of mind, when all the world seems to walk in blindness and yet a man works without wearying for that which he loves ... only in this moment is passion truly understoodFranz Schubert Faded Memories Sayings By Franz Schubert: When all hopes of recognition or honor have faded into distant memory, when purity of
Time had not faded my memories (as I had prayed to God it might), nor had it healed my wounds as it is said always to do. I began each day with the hope that the next day would be better, my recollections a little less pointed, but I would awake to the same pain, as if a black lamp were burning eternally inside me, radiating darkness.Orhan Pamuk Faded Memories Sayings By Orhan Pamuk: Time had not faded my memories (as I had prayed to God it might), nor
Until the Great Depression, most economists clung to a vision of capitalism as a perfect or nearly perfect system. That vision wasn't sustainable in the face of mass unemployment, but as memories of the Depression faded, economists fell back in love with the old, idealized vision of an economy in which rational individuals interact in perfect markets.Paul Krugman Faded Memories Sayings By Paul Krugman: Until the Great Depression, most economists clung to a vision of capitalism as a perfect
There is something tenderly appropriate in the serene death of the old ... When the duties of life have all been nobly done; when the sun touches the horion; when the purple twilight falls upon the past, the present, and the future; when memory, with dim eyes, can scarcely spell the blurred and faded records of the vanished days-then, surrounded by kindred and by friends, death comes like a strain of music. The day has been long, the road weary, and the traveler gladly stops at the welcome inn.Robert Green Ingersoll Faded Memories Sayings By Robert Green Ingersoll: There is something tenderly appropriate in the serene death of the old ... When the
It seemed like most of the memories faded before they had time to form. And after a while, my life with my father seemed like a familiar story or a distant dream.Kara Swisher Faded Memories Sayings By Kara Swisher: It seemed like most of the memories faded before they had time to form. And
Memories which someday will become all beautiful when the last annoyance that encumbers them shall have faded out of our minds.Mark Twain Faded Memories Sayings By Mark Twain: Memories which someday will become all beautiful when the last annoyance that encumbers them shall
But some scars are memories that have faded, and some memories go with scars that no longer exist.Hugh Howey Faded Memories Sayings By Hugh Howey: But some scars are memories that have faded, and some memories go with scars that
She had missed him for a while, missed his warm smile and tender yet expert touch. But she had also welcomed the absence of the invisible leash which had tugged her back to Earth more often than she liked, which had whispered of duties to another and required explanations and justifications for every excursion. And eventually even the good memories had faded into the background, replaced by the thrill of new endeavors.G.S. Jennsen Faded Memories Sayings By G.S. Jennsen: She had missed him for a while, missed his warm smile and tender yet expert
He shifts and my eyes shatter into thousands of pieces that ricochet around the room, capturing a million snapshots, a million moments in time. Flickering images faded with age, frozen thoughts hovering precariously in dead space, a whirlwind of memories that slice through my soul.Tahereh Mafi Faded Memories Sayings By Tahereh Mafi: He shifts and my eyes shatter into thousands of pieces that ricochet around the room,
Funny how something that seemed so insignificant, just an old bowl with faded glazed stripes, could trigger so many memories.Dorothea Benton Frank Faded Memories Sayings By Dorothea Benton Frank: Funny how something that seemed so insignificant, just an old bowl with faded glazed stripes,
Rare and precious moments, how I long to live with you eternally! If only your sweetness never ceased to touch my lips, and the flutters you evoke nevermore faded away. I dream of your arm extended immeasurably to keep hold of my reaching hand.
But Father Time, being a cruel master, will not grant such a wish.
And so I tuck you away as cherished memories, stored in a treasure box buried in my heart. And in times of solitude, I shall bring you out to view like rainbows.
Richelle E. Goodrich Faded Memories Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Rare and precious moments, how I long to live with you eternally! If only your
Will. For a moment her heart hesitated. She remembered when Will had died, her agony, the long nights alone, reaching across the bed every morning when she woke up, for years expecting to find him there, and only slowly growing accustomed to the fact that side of the bed would always be empty. The moments when she had found something funny and turned to share the joke with him, only to be shocked anew that he was not there. The worst moments, when, sitting alone at breakfast, she had realized that she had forgotten the precise blue of his eyes or the depth of his laugh; that, like the sound of Jem's violin music, they had faded into the distance where memories are silent.Cassandra Clare Faded Memories Sayings By Cassandra Clare: Will. For a moment her heart hesitated. She remembered when Will had died, her agony,
I remember it all: every word, every breath, every tick of the clock ... everything that happened is with me forever.
I can never forget it.
But that dosen't mean I can live it again. You can't live what's gone, you can only remember it, and memories have no life. They're just pale reminders of a time that's gone - like faded photographs, or a dried-up daisy chain at the back of a drawer. They have no substance. They can't take you back. Nothing can take you back.
Nothing can be the same as it was.
Nothing is.
All I can do is tell it.
Kevin Brooks Faded Memories Sayings By Kevin Brooks: I remember it all: every word, every breath, every tick of the clock ... everything
I sit quietly and think about my mom. It's funny how memory erodes, If all I had to work from were my childhood memories, my knowledge of my mother would be faded and soft, with a few sharp memories standing out.Audrey Niffenegger Faded Memories Sayings By Audrey Niffenegger: I sit quietly and think about my mom. It's funny how memory erodes, If all
Her dizziness has faded, but the rocking sensation continues. She feels as if her footing has been swept out from under her. Her body's interior has lost all necessary weight and is becoming a cavern. Some kind of hand is deftly stripping away everything that has constituted her as Eri until now: the organs, the senses, the muscles, the memories. She knows she will end up as a mere convenient conduit used for the passage of external things. Her flesh creeps with the overwhelming sense of isolation this gives her. I hate this! she screams. I don't want to he changed this way! But her intended scream never emerges. All that leaves her throat in reality is a fading whimper.Haruki Murakami Faded Memories Sayings By Haruki Murakami: Her dizziness has faded, but the rocking sensation continues. She feels as if her footing
She could not bring herself to turn away from the night sky, for the stars and the blackness were the only escape she had when old faded memories returned to haunt her.Narayan Liu Faded Memories Sayings By Narayan Liu: She could not bring herself to turn away from the night sky, for the stars
Without books we should very likely be a still-primitive people living in the shadow of traditions that faded with years until only a blur remained, and different memories would remember the past in different ways. A parent or a teacher has only his lifetime; a good book can teach forever.Without books we should very likely be a still-primitive people living in the shadow of traditions that faded with years until only a blur remained, and different memories would remember the past in different ways.

Memories are interesting. Interesting because they are faded yet detailed, pictured yet difficult to decipher, yelling yet mute, beautiful yet dreadful, magical yet logical, and familiar yet new. We listen; we encounter; we observe; we do; we learn; and, we talk. Everything we do or experience becomes our memory. Indeed, memories are interesting.Suyog Ketkar Faded Memories Sayings By Suyog Ketkar: Memories are interesting. Interesting because they are faded yet detailed, pictured yet difficult to decipher,
The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory.Aldo Gucci Faded Memories Sayings By Aldo Gucci: The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has
Finally he said that in his first years of darkness his dreams had been vivid beyond all expectation and that he had come to thirst for them but that dreams and memories alike had faded one by one until there were no more. Of all that once had been no trace remained. The look of the world. The faces of loved ones. Finally even his own person was lost to him. Whatever he had been he was no more. He said that like every man who comes to the end of something there was nothing to be done but to begin again. I can't remember the world of light, he said. It has been so long. The world is a fragile world. Ultimately, what can be seen is what endures. What is true ...
In my first years of blindness, I thought it was a form of death. I was wrong. Losing one's sight is like falling in a dream. You think there's no bottom to this abyss. You fall and fall. Light recedes. Memory of light. Memory of the world. Of your own face. Of the grim-faced mask.
Cormac McCarthy Faded Memories Sayings By Cormac McCarthy: Finally he said that in his first years of darkness his dreams had been vivid

Be that as it may, it's all I have to work with. Clutching these faded, fading, imperfect memories to my breast, I go on writing this book with all the desperate intensity of a starving man sucking on bones.Anonymous Faded Memories Sayings By Anonymous: Be that as it may, it's all I have to work with. Clutching these faded,
Memories were fine but you couldn't touch them, smell them or hold them. They were never exactly as the moment was, and they faded with time.Cecelia Ahern Faded Memories Sayings By Cecelia Ahern: Memories were fine but you couldn't touch them, smell them or hold them. They were
Success only means doing something sincerely and wholeheartedly. I think life is a process. Through the ages, the end of heroes is the same as ordinary men. They all died and gradually faded away in the memory of man. But when we are still alive, we have to understand ourselves, discover ourselves and express ourselves. In this way, we can progress, but we may not be successful.Bruce Lee Faded Memories Sayings By Bruce Lee: Success only means doing something sincerely and wholeheartedly. I think life is a process. Through
I have mentioned already, by the way, that though he lost his mother in his fourth year he remembered her all his life - her face, her caresses, "as though she stood living before me." Such memories may persist, as every one knows, from an even earlier age, even from two years old, but scarcely standing out through a whole lifetime like spots of light out of darkness, like a corner torn out of a huge picture, which has all faded and disappeared except that fragment.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Faded Memories Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I have mentioned already, by the way, that though he lost his mother in his
It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn't it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human.
Nora Roberts Faded Memories Sayings By Nora Roberts: It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were
All memories soften with age, and the good ones are also the most perishable ( ... ) conjured up till they faded to nothing. Like cave paintings by candlelight, she could only glimpse them now in the dark from the corner of her eye.Ann-Marie MacDonald Faded Memories Sayings By Ann-Marie MacDonald: All memories soften with age, and the good ones are also the most perishable (

Memories- even the best of them- faded.Kristin Hannah Faded Memories Sayings By Kristin Hannah: Memories- even the best of them- faded.
There were some memories, though, that never faded.Cassandra Clare Faded Memories Sayings By Cassandra Clare: There were some memories, though, that never faded.
Is it within us all, when the memories of war have faded, to so want to be a part of something great that we throw aside the quiet, the calm, the mundane, the peace itself? Do we collectively come to equate peace with boredom and complacency? Perhaps we hold these embers of war within us, dulled only by sharp memories of the pain and the loss, and when that smothering blanket dissipates with the passage of healing time, those fires flare again to life.R.A. Salvatore Faded Memories Sayings By R.A. Salvatore: Is it within us all, when the memories of war have faded, to so want
Whatever I learned,

Seems like those faded years of childhood that flew,
Away in some dilemma,
Always in some confusion,
The purpose of this life,
Seems like an illusion!
Mehek Bassi Faded Memories Sayings By Mehek Bassi: Whatever I learned,Whatever I knew,Seems like those faded years of childhood that flew,Away in some
In recent years, as personal memories have faded, another perspective is beginning to make a tentative appearance in China. This view acknowledges the colossal wrongs committed during the Cultural Revolution, but it begins to inquire whether perhaps Mao raised an important question, even if his answer to it proved disastrous. The problem Mao is said to have identified is the relationship of the modern state - especially the Communist state - to the people it governs. In largely agricultural - and even incipient industrial - societies, governance concerns issues within the capacity of the general public to understand. Of course, in aristocratic societies, the relevant public is limited. But whatever the formal legitimacy, some tacit consensus by those who are to carry out directives is needed - unless governance is to be entirely by imposition, which is usually unsustainable over a historic period.Henry Kissinger Faded Memories Sayings By Henry Kissinger: In recent years, as personal memories have faded, another perspective is beginning to make a
The thing about memories wasn't that many of them inevitably faded, but that repeated recall of the ones you remembered burnished them into shining, gorgeous lies.Dexter Palmer Faded Memories Sayings By Dexter Palmer: The thing about memories wasn't that many of them inevitably faded, but that repeated recall

It's a funny thing - the reality is I have no feelings about school. It's long gone. Funnily enough, the bad memories - of which I don't have any left to be honest, I can just remember a sense of tedium - have faded. And teachers that I liked have remained quite vivid. There are three or four left.Colin Firth Faded Memories Sayings By Colin Firth: It's a funny thing - the reality is I have no feelings about school. It's
