I’d forgotten to keep blasting a song in my mind. I remedied my mistake, but the lyrics to “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” seemed too close to home at the mo-ment. “Culture Club?” Now his mouth curled downward. “And you accuse me of practicing cruel and unusual punishment.
Jeaniene Frost

Kris Kristofferson
someday we will regard our children not as creatures to manipulate or to change but rather as messengers from a world we once deeply knew, but which we have long since forgotten, who can reveal to us more about the true secrets of life, and also our own lives, than our parents were ever able to.

Sanya Malhotra
In a heartbeat, a thousand voices took up the chant. King Joffrey and King Robb and King Stannis were forgotten, and King Bread ruled alone. “Bread.” they clamored. “Bread, Bread!

We want our teams to be able to entertain the supporters – they’re such an important part of the industry, sometimes forgotten a bit. At the Amex they’ll be very important for us. So we’ll try and entertain. At the same time I know we’re in the results business. I’m not naive.
Graham Potter
Being a writer is an endless study in human transition and lessons learned or forgotten or misapplied.
Sloane Crosley
All men know the use of the useful, but nobody knows the use of the useless. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so that I can have a word with him?

all thoughts of it being paranormal or supernatural must be forgotten.
Scott Cunningham

Burt Lancaster
I’m not so stupid as to believe that you’ve completely forgotten about your former boyfriend. I know you think there are others here more suited for me and this life, and I wouldn’t want you to rush into trying to be happy with any of this. I just… I just want to know if it’s possible.
Kiera Cass

Bobby Jones
Being attentive to inequality and not tone deaf to it. But offering prescriptions that are actually going to help folks in communities that feel forgotten. That’s going to be our most important strategy. And I think we can successfully do that.

Yom HaShoah is a vital day in the Jewish calendar, providing us with a focal point for our remembrance. We cannot bring the dead back to life, but we can bring their memory back to life and ensure they are not forgotten. We can undertake in our lives to do what they were so cruelly prevented from doing in theirs.
Jonathan Sacks

James Vance
Real Madrid was my home for a long time and I’ve not forgotten it. I grew up there, I met a lot of people and I made my debut. There’s part of me that will always be there, I can’t deny it. To play for the first team was a dream.
Marcos Alonso
It’s a lot of people that died for me to have the opportunity that I have now, just the freedom. It shouldn’t be forgotten as far as the past is concerned.

Stijn Streuvels
And, Joey, if you ever want to know about the japonicas and the daisy fields it will be alright that you have forgotten because I will be able to tell you about how it felt to be feeling that way you cannot quite remember – that will be for the time when something happens years from now that reminds you of now.
Zelda Fitzgerald
People say that I must get bothered when someone stops me for an autograph or a photo. I’ll get bothered when no one asks me. Being asked means people haven’t forgotten the time I played.

Konrad Lorenz
A measure of victory has been won, and honors have been bestowed in token thereof. But honours fade or are forgotten, and monuments crumble into dust. It is the battle itself that matters – and the battle must go on.

James P. Hogan
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
B. F. Skinner

Sarah Dessen
History is littered with leaders and movements, now long vanished and mostly forgotten, who failed to get to the deep truths of how and why their defeat happened.

Charles Hamilton Aide
The heroes of Flight 93 won the first battle in the War on Terror, and they should never be forgotten.
Jim Ramstad
Today, if we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other-that man, that woman, that child is my brother or my sister. If everyone could see the image of God in his neighbor, do you think we would still need tanks and generals?
Mother Teresa
Let the past not be forgotten. Let the lessons not be in vain.
Lora Leigh
Sometimes you get a team that has almost forgotten how to win. That’s maybe fallen away from the standards that should be set at this level. Some are big problems, some of them are small problems.
Sol Campbell
Elephants are highly emotional. Whatever they are feeling, they let it out immediately, and the histrionics are over and forgotten in a moment, lasting no longer than the cloud formations that are constantly coming apart and re-forming overhead. There is no guile in pachyderms.
Alex Shoumatoff
You’ll understand when you’ve forgotten what you understood before
Italo Calvino

Mike Tyson
Some of what these pamphlets [of astrological forecasts] say will turn out to be true, but most of it time and experience will expose as empty and worthless. The latter part will be forgotten literally: written on the winds while the former will be carefully entered in people’s memories, as is usual with the crowd.
Johannes Kepler
I cannot tell you any spiritual truth that deep within you don’t know already. All I can do is remind you of what you have forgotten.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
In a wristwatch, imagine the battery is in the strap and there’s a medical sensor in there connected to the internet. If someone is monitoring that, they could phone up if the user has forgotten to take some medication. This could save hundreds of dollars in medical fees later. What’s missing? It’s a stable battery.

John Townsend

Denise Lewis
The tender Evenlode that makes Her meadows hush to hear the sound Of waters mingling in the brakes, And binds my heart to English ground. A lovely river, all alone, She lingers in the hills and holds A hundred little towns of stone, Forgotten in the western wolds.
Hilaire Belloc
Interest groups are not the same as individuals. Through false nostalgia for the New Deal, you are taking the younger generation hostage. They are the ones who are going to have to pay far greater taxes. They are the future’s forgotten men.
Amity Shlaes
No one is forgotten. It is a lie, any talk of God that does not comfort you.
Meister Eckhart
History will only ever be partial, to a large extent history tells us what we think should be remembered and what should be forgotten, I find that really problematic.
Matt Smith
His hands are saying that he wants to hold her. His feet are saying that he wants to chase after her… He’s probably forgotten that I’m here, beside him
Ai Yazawa
I think the source of our sorrow and the source of our joy are intimately entwined. Our sorrow is that we have forgotten who we are, we have forgotten we are one with that source of all life – absolutely indestructible, perfect, joyful. The source of our joy is when we remember that.
Richard Bach
If you would not be forgotten, do things worth remembering.
Benjamin Franklin
Only speak words that make souls stronger — for once words are spoken, they may be forgiven, but may be not forgotten.
Ann Voskamp

Ben Jonson
Because modern Protestants have not only forgotten what Rome was, what she is, and what she will for ever be; the most irreconcilable and powerful enemy of the Gospel of Christ; but they consider her almost as a branch of the church whose corner stone is Christ.
Charles Chiniquy
Stories first heard standing at a mother’s knee, are never wholly forgotten, — a little spring that never quite dries up in our journey through scorching years.

Keith Johnstone
I’d forgotten how tiny new babies are.
Emma Weymouth
I am lucky to have had an attentive, curious and loving dad and heart-smart, down-to-earth, gifted mother. They changed the outlooks of their own lives and have never forgotten the people and organizations that helped them dream bigger than their circumstances should have allowed.
Jennifer Garner
I used to wear the German shirt with such pride and excitement, but now I don’t. I feel unwanted and think that what I have achieved since my international debut in 2009 has been forgotten.

It seems as though mankind has forgotten the laws of its divine Saviour, Who preached love and forgiveness of injuries—and that men attribute the greatest merit to skill in killing one another.
Leo Tolstoy
I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.
Nicholas Sparks
There’s a line you have when you’re racing, and you can ride up to that line. If you push beyond it, you might crash. But first is first, second is forgotten. That’s what we say.
Guy Martin
One does not expect to be comfortable in prison. As a matter of fact, one’s mental suffering is so much greater than any common physical distress that the latter is almost forgotten.
Emmeline Pankhurst
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.
Liya Kebede
The Declaration [of Independence] was a committee report, and [Tomas] Jefferson was simply the draftsman. [John] Adams’s crucial role in bringing about independence in the Continental Congress has tended to get forgotten.
Gordon S. Wood
I lived in Bandra East, on the 12th floor. There was a small earthquake; I could feel the building shaking. I was halfway down the stairs when I realised I’d forgotten my laptop, and all my scripts were on it. If I lost the laptop, I’d lose all my work. I ran back up to get it!
Rajkumar Hirani
The marble keeps merely a cold and sad memory of a man who would else be forgotten. No man who needs a monument ever ought to have one.

Paul Sinha
One nice thing about L.A. is that you can work here in privacy, but that also works against you because you can get forgotten here, too. I think in New York, it’s hard to be left alone. It’s hard to have privacy whereas here, you can have it.

Kurt Vonnegut
Wars become history all too soon and are forgotten all too soon as well, before the lessons can be learned.

Edmund White
I had been walking in silence for so long,I had almost forgotten what my own voice sounded like.My knees were tired;my toes were beginning to ache.
Banana Yoshimoto
Nor must Uncle Sam’s Web-feet be forgotten. At all the watery margins they have been present. Not only on the deep sea, the broadbay, and the rapid river, but also up the narrow muddy bayou, and wherever the ground was a little damp, they have been, and made their tracks.
Abraham Lincoln
There are Behan experts in international universities, but we seem to have forgotten him here in Ireland. He was an extraordinarily gifted writer. His poetry alone is outstanding.

James Hillman
I’ve spent a lot of my life forcing myself to do the right thing, and nowadays, I’ve just forgotten about all that. It’s far more romantic just to let all your vices and fetishes come out and shine.
Kevin Parker
[I]f one asks what substantive contributions [F. A. Hayek] made to our understanding of how the world works, one is left at something of a loss. Were it not for his politics, he would be virtually forgotten.
Paul Krugman
All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.
Elias Canetti

Nathan Goldstein
Well I do think, when there are more women, that the tone of the conversation changes, and also the goals of the conversation change. But it doesn’t mean that the whole world would be a lot better if it were totally run by women. If you think that, you’ve forgotten high school.
Madeleine Albright

Sebastian Faulks
In fall, God is remembered; in rise, forgotten.

Sydney J. Harris
Dortmund is like family to me, and I’m proud that they had not forgotten about me and welcomed me back.
Shinji Kagawa
For me, the Dennis Wilson story is a quintessential You Must Remember This story because it’s one of these stories that people never talk about, don’t really think about, and it’s forgotten within this major thing that is thought to be this cataclysmic event of the 20th century.
Karina Longworth
Go on, have a pasty,” said Harry, who had never had anything to share before or, indeed, anyone to share it with. It was a nice feeling, sitting there with Ron, eating their way through all Harry’s pasties, cakes, and candies (the sandwiches lay forgotten).

Joyce Maynard
My life is like a lone, forgotten Q-Tip in the second-to-last drawer.
Carrie Fisher
We see many posters and standees at cinema halls, and some catch attention. But these posters are soon forgotten. Taking a picture with the actors, enabled by AR, helps record a memory.

Walshy Fire
Fear is not a good teacher. The lessons of fear are quickly forgotten.

J. R. R. Tolkien
Wars are fought to gain a certain objective. War itself is not the objective; victory is not the objective; you fight to remove the obstruction that comes in the way of your objective.

Marcus Aurelius
A red map isn’t easy to follow. Any document made of blood and bones is tricky. Wrong turns are easily made, and there are often piles of stones in the road. A person has to disregard time and sorrow and all the damage done. If you follow, if you dare, the thread always leads to whomever or whatever you’ve forgotten.
Alice Hoffman
That’s the God’s truth – I’ve forgotten that I was famous. I guess it’s laughable.

The revolution in Russia was victorious with the help of the poor peasants. This should always be borne in mind here in Western Europe and all the world over. But the workers in Western Europe stand alone: this should never be forgotten in Russia.
Herman Gorter
You can talk about Holocaust denial, but it’s really marginal for the most part. What is compelling about the Armenian genocide, is how it has been forgotten.
Atom Egoyan

Norman Borlaug
Be phenomenal or be forgotten!
Eric Thomas
The more mental effort he made the clearer he saw that it was undoubtedly so: that he had really forgotten and overlooked one little circumstance in life – that Death would come and end everything, so that it was useless to begin anything, and that there was no help for it, Yes it was terrible but true
Leo Tolstoy
Where is that man who has forgotten words that I may have a word with him?

A. Y. Jackson
You know — we’ve had to imagine the war here, and we have imagined that it was being fought by aging men like ourselves. We had forgotten that wars were fought by babies. When I saw those freshly shaved faces, it was a shock. “‘My God, my God — ‘ I said to myself, ‘It’s the Children’s Crusade.
Kurt Vonnegut
Everything that I had done creatively related to two or three incidents that happened to me when I was a child that I’d forgotten. Everything, absolutely everything.

Mallory Ortberg
I guess I should have forgotten about it ages ago, but forgetting isn’t something I’m very good at.
Nick Hornby
The 8th Habit, then, is not about adding one more habit to the 7 – one that somehow got forgotten. It’s about seeing and harnessing the power of a third dimension to the 7 Habits that meets the central challenge of the new Knowledge Worker Age. The 8th Habit is to Find Your Voice and Inspire Others to Find Theirs.
Stephen Covey
When one of my characters becomes aware of a magical element, it might be because the world is wider than we assume it to be, but it might also be a reminder to pay attention to what is here already, hidden only because it’s been forgotten.
Charles de Lint

Kriti Sanon
I think he came to the front door and rang the bell, and Maggie let him in, and he said he had forgotten his key; so I think she must have been down stairs.
Lizzie Andrew Borden
Malander had an idea and was trying to work it out, but it would take him time. Sometimes people never saw things clearly until it was too late and they no longer had the strength to start again. Or else they forgot their idea along the way and didn’t even realise that they forgotten.
Tove Jansson
So many things I had thought forgotten Return to my mind with stranger pain: Like letters that arrive addressed to someone Who left the house so many years ago.

Indeed, the Lord has not forgotten! He has blessed us and others throughout the world with the Book of Mormon.
Russell M. Nelson
Few have abilities so much needed by the rest of the world as to be caressed on their own terms; and he that will not condescend to recommend himself by external embellishments must submit to the fate of just sentiment meanly expressed, and be ridiculed and forgotten before he is understood.
Samuel Johnson
I always feel trepidation at the beginning of every project. I worry about so many things. Time to get it right, the skill to do it justice, the will to finish. I also worry about more mundane things, like what if my computer crashes and I’ve forgotten to back up the manuscript?
Rick Yancey
It’s time to float on the waters of the night. Time to wrap my arms around this book and press it to my chest, life preserver in a seat of unremarkable men and women anonymous faces on the street, a hundred thousand unalphabitized things a million forgotten hours.
Billy Collins
Americans have the mistaken viewpoint that Lady Liberty is only a peacetime luxury who is ill-equipped to fight the nasties. Therefore, they reason, we need an equally nasty Big Brother. Americans have forgotten that Lady Liberty is one ferocious mother when protecting her children.
Mary Ruwart
When we don’t hear anything from God we just don’t know exactly what He is planning and we come to different conclusions that maybe He has forgotten me, maybe He doesn’t hear my prayers, maybe I’m not good enough.
Nick Vujicic
There was very little drama and performance at my school, so I’ve never forgotten the people who did encourage me and I’ve thought whether it would be a good idea to even get in touch with them and just say thanks, because they really opened a door for me mentally and emotionally – that’s really important.
Martin Freeman
I remember that as I was writing a poem on ‘Snow’ when I was eight, I said aloud, ‘I wish I could have the ability to write down the feelings I have now when I am little, because when I grow up, I will know how to write, but I will have forgotten what being little feels like.’
Sylvia Plath

TV is great, and I love it, but to watch somebody’s hand-crafted drawings on the big screen is an experience that we’ve forgotten as an audience, how much fun 2D can be.
Genndy Tartakovsky
What do people fear most about death? I asked the reb. “Fear?” he thought for a moment. ‘Well, for one thing, what happens next? Where do we go? Is it what we imagined?” That’s big. “Yes. But there’s something else.” What else? He leaned forward. “Being forgotten,” he whispered.
Mitch Albom
Much of Satan’s time is spent trying to make you remember what God has already forgotten. Reconcile, rejoice, and look forward.

We don’t need lists of rights and wrongs, tables of do’s and don’ts: we need books, time, and silence. Thou shalt not is soon forgotten, but Once upon a time lasts forever.
Philip Pullman
Assimilation is the way you excuse yourself. It absolutely never worked at all. You may not think you are noticeable. But they know who you are. They know you’re a degenerate, and they’ve never forgotten that.
Harry Hay
Language is a living thing. We can feel it changing. Parts of it become old: they drop off and are forgotten. New pieces bud out, spread into leaves, and become big branches, proliferating.
Gilbert Highet
Our heart knows what our mind has forgotten – it knows the sacred that is within all that exists, and through a depth of feeling we can once again experience this connection, this belonging.
Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
Psycho-babble is that language spoken by sailors who have become so interested in navigating their way around their boat that they have forgotten to read the stars and sea. They may be able to get from the galley to the head but will be lost in their journey from point to port.
Rich Mullins

Robert Glasper
I loved growing up in a little town. I loved knowing people. I loved going to the store and running into people. I loved going into the store and having forgotten my bag, saying, ‘Charge it, put it on my bill.’ I loved going to the gas station and saying, ‘Pete, fill it up.’ I loved that continuity of life.
Sissy Spacek
I’m privileged to have had some success, but I’ve never forgotten what it was like to queue for a half-crown gallery seat for ‘Oliver!’ which is why I ensure that there are ВЈ20 day tickets for ‘Miss Saigon’ and that the balconies in my theatres are as comfortable as I can possibly make them.
Cameron Mackintosh
In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind even to his most essential needs for survival, water along with other resources has become the victim of his indifference.

Rainer Maria Rilke
I merely say that all reading for pleasure is escape, whether it be Greek, mathematics, astronomy, Benedetto Croce, or The Diary of the Forgotten Man. To say otherwise is to be an intellectual snob, and a juvenile at the art of living.
Raymond Chandler
He looked again. Longer this time. She may have ‘forgotten’ to put a bra on that morning. Another oops. “Are you kidding me with that?” he asked.
Julie James
There is a forgotten, nay almost forbidden word, which means more to me than any other. That word is England.
Winston Churchill
Amen,’ I exclaim, accidentally spitting out a Raisinet. I pick up the chocolate with a Kleenex and stuff it in my purse. Ten bucks says a month from now I’ll have forgotten about it and will finally have said heart attack when I assume a rat shat in there.
Jen Lancaster
At death our friends and relatives either draw nearer to us and are found out, or depart farther from us and are forgotten. Friends are as often brought nearer together as separated by death.

Jesus made everything so simple and we have made it so complicated.В He spoke to the people in short sentences and everyday words,В illustrating His messages with never-to-be forgotten stories.
Billy Graham
I thought you had forgotten me.” “I have spent my life remembering you.
Meredith Ann Pierce
It is easy to think of potatoes, and fortunately for men who have not much money it is easy to think of them with a certain safety. Potatoes are one of the last things to disappear, in times of war, which is probably why they should not be forgotten in times of peace.
M. F. K. Fisher
Maui is a beautiful island. It’s really the site of an ancient civilization that we’ve forgotten about, a civilization that existed millions of years ago. When their time came, they left this world and another race was born, the race of human beings.
Frederick Lenz
I really love that song. I love when people cover songs that are familiar but have been kind of forgotten about. So when you play it, it takes people back to a certain place. That’s what I wanted for ‘Torn.’
Cassadee Pope
Try to be forgotten. Go live in the country. Stay in mourning for two years, then remarry, but choose somebody decent.

Yours are the sweetest eyes, I’ve ever seen.

Andrew Bacevich
Terrorists and their allies believe the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the American Bill of Rights and every charter of liberty ever written are lies to be burned and destroyed and forgotten.
George W. Bush
We have lost the art of public tenderness, these small gestures of wiping and washing; we have forgotten how abjectly the body welcomes a formal touch.

Vince Neil

Hunter S. Thompson
As a child, acting just seemed like a natural extension of my love of play – and if you’ve forgotten how to play, you shouldn’t be an actor.
Simon McBurney
A lot of people have forgotten the severity of this disease, of HIV. So I think it’s important that we just talk about things like this: how we can prevent it, how we can make sure that people are safe, how they can move forward, too, if they do have HIV.
Mj Rodriguez
Published in 1947, ‘The Plague’ has often been read as an allegory, a book that is really about the occupation of France, say, or the human condition. But it’s also a very good book about plagues, and about how people react to them – a whole category of human behavior that we have forgotten.
Anne Applebaum
Without a good cultural policy, without adequate help, we will always have individualists, shooting stars who are rapidly forgotten or who stop painting for a more profitable occupation.
Ralph Allen
The spirit of God speaking to the spirit of man has power to impart truth with greater effect and understanding than the truth can be imparted by personal contact even with heavenly beings. Through the Holy Ghost, the truth is woven into the very fibre and sinews of the body so that it cannot be forgotten.
Joseph Fielding Smith
Maybe when I’m dead, I’ll be forgiven, but I’m afraid I’ll also be forgotten.
Louis Auchincloss

Fred Allen
Walking this road without you to remake forgotten promises
Tetsuya Nomura
Every honor is appropriate for the courageous Americans who made the supreme sacrifice for our Nation at Pearl Harbor and in the many battles that followed in World War II.

Ronald Reagan
I have forgotten much, but still remember The poinsiana’s red, blood-red in warm December.
Claude McKay
When the great Tao is forgotten, goodness and piety appear. When the body’s intelligence declines, cleverness and knowledge step forth. When there is no peace in the family, filial piety begins. When the country falls into chaos, patriotism is born.
I don’t know why they are all so eager to be remembered. What good will it do them? There are some things that should be forgotten by everyone, and never spoken of again.
Margaret Atwood
There is no love, there is only the lie we tell ourselves that things are more important than they actually are, that our lives will have meaning beyond all the other lives that have come before us and been forgotten, that there is hope in any of this.
Chad Kultgen
If you want a peaceful place to dwell Cold Mountain is guaranteed forever A light wind blows softly in the pines The sound is good when you are close One old man sits beneath the trees Reading Lao Tzu and Huang Ti, mumbling I could not find the world if I searched ten years I’ve forgotten the road by which I came
I had forgotten how thrilling a snow day is until my son started school, and as much as he loves it, he swoons at the idea of a free day arriving unexpectedly, laid out like a gift.
Susan Orlean
Memory has always been fundamental for me. In fact, remembering what I had forgotten is the way most of the poems get started.
Seamus Heaney
There are ways in which you can make sure that even if people come to the theatre because they know an actor or actress, by the end, theyve forgotten that, and they leave going, Wow – what an amazing play.
Kevin Spacey
To forgive is merely to remember only the loving thoughts you gave in the past, and those that were given you. All the rest must be forgotten.
Marianne Williamson
When do you think people die? When they’re shot through the heart with a pistol? …No. When they have an uncurable disease? …No. When they drink soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! When they are forgotten! Even if I die, my dream will come true. The hearts of the people will be cured..!
Eiichiro Oda
I haven’t forgotten where I came from.
John Salazar

The people of Somalia just do not have a voice. They are to me the most forgotten people in the world.
I think it is very important that films make people look at what they’ve forgotten.
Spike Lee
But the past is passed; why moralize upon it? Forget it. See, yon bright son has forgotten it all, and the blue sea, and the blue sky; these have turned over new leaves. Because they have no memory . . . because they are not human.
Herman Melville
Today the heart of God is an open wound of love. He aches over our distance and preoccupation. He mourns that we do not draw near to Him. He grieves that we have forgotten Him. He weeps over our obsession with muchness and manyness. He longs for our presence.
Richard J. Foster
I think our elderly are forgotten sometimes.
Ricky Gervais
Whatever may be the experience in everyday life, the basci inner Truth should not be forgotten.
Sathya Sai Baba
In your hurry to keep Christmas, you have forgotten Christmas. The truest gift of Christmas is the gift of self.
Richard Paul Evans
Every success story is a tale of constant adaption, revision and change. A company that stands still will soon be forgotten. Trying to provoke positive change is a principle we’ve embedded across the Virgin family for more than four decades.
Richard Branson
I’m slowly becoming a repository for decomposing sorrows, regrets, ignored injustice, and forgotten promises. I can still feel its stench. But when I get accustomed to it, I will call it experience.
Mesa Selimovic
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.
Sandra Day O’Connor
I loved reading Roald Dahl when I was young but I had forgotten a lot about the books. I read the ‘BFG’ on the iPad the other day and it was so interesting to see his descriptions of clothes and places.
Frank Lampard
Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.
John Dryden
Those who deplore our militants, who exhort patience in the name of a false peace, are in fact supporting segregation and exploitation. They would have social peace at the expense of social and racial justice. They are more concerned with easing racial tension than enforcing racial democracy.
A. Philip Randolph
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.
Jerry Della Femina
Here again we witness the single outcome of a worldwide process, with East and West yielding the same results, and once again for the same reason: Men have forgotten God.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Lance Armstrong deserves to be forgotten in cycling
Pat McQuaid
I had almost forgotten to tell you that I have already been to the Parliament House; and yet this is of most importance. For, had I seen nothing else in England but this, I should have thought my journey thither amply rewarded.
Karl Philipp Moritz
A novelist’s lack of awareness of and critical distance to his own body of work is due to a phenomenon that I have noticed in myself and many others: as soon as it is written, every new book erases the last one, leaving me with the impression that I have forgotten it.
Patrick Modiano
We live in fear when we’ve forgotten how to act from a place of love. Remember that, and set intention to act from a place of no comparison, jealousy, or fear. Police yourself on this!
Kathryn Budig
The principle of real leadership ignored, the immortal objects of society forgotten, practical conservatism degenerated into mere laudation of private enterprise, economic policy almost wholly surrendered to special interests.
Russell Kirk
There’s a richness in older music that’s been forgotten.
Dave Soldier
We’ve gotten caught up in thinking we are what we look like, the physical, the exterior. We think we’re the lamp shade. We’ve forgotten that we are the light-the electricity and the luminosity that lights up every man, woman, and child. The light is who we truly are.
Michael Beckwith
Series of syllables which have been learned by heart, forgotten, and learned anew must be similar as to their inner conditions at the times when they can be recited.

J. K. Rowling
Dreams should be forgotten when we wake. Or one day we will find ourselves unable to sleep.
Spider Robinson
It is a simple but sometimes forgotten truth that the greatest enemy to present joy and high hopes is the cultivation of retrospective bitterness.
Robert Menzies
The decline of the Sunday meal is a major concern because it means that family values are being forgotten. Once that creeps into mealtimes, it will begin creeping into other areas.
Ainsley Harriott
If… many influential people have failed to understand, or have just forgotten, what we were up against in the Cold War and how we overcame it, they are not going to be capable of securing, let alone enlarging, the gains that liberty has made.
Margaret Thatcher
Rock became an incredible commercial success, people just became bored with serious music, and it was forgotten.
Henry Flynt
We can know what love is. ItВґs adults who have forgotten, so they cling to their poor substitute and yell at kids who dare to live with real love. Pure Love. Love without compromise or distraction.
Barry Lyga
The men and women of America who have been forgotten will never be forgotten again.
Donald Trump
… Herbert said of himself, with his eyes fixed on the fire, that he thought he must have committed a felony and forgotten the details of it, he felt so dejected and guilty.
Charles Dickens
Preach the gospel, die and be forgotten.
Nicolaus Zinzendorf
Many deeds are done so as to forget another deed: there are also opiate activities. I exist so that another will be forgotten.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Sydney discovers that she minds the loss of her mourning. When she grieved, she felt herself to be intimately connected to Daniel. But with each passing day, he floats away from her. When she thinks about him now, it is more as a lost possibility than as a man. She has forgotten his breath, his musculature.
Anita Shreve
Most of all, however, critics of black conservatives say we’ve forgotten where we came from. I may forget a federal budget number or, God forbid, to set the alarm clock for my weekly 6 a.m. flight to Washington, but I know exactly where I came from.
J. C. Watts
Every widow I have met has recognized in the wheel a dear forgotten friend.
Mahatma Gandhi
Memories begin to creep forward from hidden corners of your mind. Passing disappointments. Lost chances and lost causes. Heartbreaks and pain and desolate, horrible loneliness. Sorrows you thought long forgotten mingle with still-fresh wounds.
Erin Morgenstern
Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all our service men and women past and present. You are not forgotten!
Courteney Cox
You have forgotten the One who doesn’t care about ownership, who doesn’t try to turn a profit from every human exchange.
The Platonists and their Christian successors held the peculiar notion that the Earth was tainted and somehow nasty, while the heavens were perfect and divine. The fundamental idea that the Earth is a planet, that we are citizens of the Universe, was rejected and forgotten.
Carl Sagan
How idle a boast, after all, is the immortality of a name! Time is ever silently turning over his pages; we are too much engrossed by the story of the present to think of the character and anecdotes that gave interest to the past; and each age is a volume thrown aside and forgotten.
Washington Irving
The longer I live the more convinced I become that God governs in the affairs of men. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need His assistance.
Benjamin Franklin
Considered now as a possession, one may define culture as the residuum of a large body of useless knowledge that has been well and truly forgotten.
Albert J. Nock
Many causes produce war. There are ancient hatreds, turbulent frontiers, the “legacy of old forgotten, far-off things, and battles long ago.” There are new-born fanaticisms. Convictions on the part of certain peoples that they have become the unique depositories of ultimate truth and right.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The people currently in charge have forgotten the first principle of an open society, namely that we may be wrong and that there has to be free discussion. That it’s possible to be opposed to the policies without being unpatriotic.
George Soros
That’s the nub of the thing, you see seriousness of spirit. It doesn’t mean heaviness of heart, or a lack of fantasy, but it does mean an awareness of influences that touch our lives, sometimes in ways that seem cruel and unfeeling, and sometimes in ways that open up a glory which can never be forgotten.
Robertson Davies
The goddess has never been lost. It is just that some of us have forgotten how to find her.
Patricia Monaghan
Goddesses never die. They slip in and out of the world’s cities, in and out of our dreams, century after century, answering to different names, dressed differently, perhaps even disguised, perhaps idle and unemployed, their official altars abandoned, their temples feared or simply forgotten.
Phyllis Chesler
One of the common traits of outstanding performers-coaches, athletes, managers, sales representatives, executives, and others who face a daily up/down, win/lose accounting system-is that a rejection, that is, defeat, is quickly forgotten, replaced eagerly by pursuit of a new order, client, or opponent.
Bill Walsh
I’ve made a point of trying not to play the same part, and of moving between theatre and film and TV. The idea is that by the time you come back, you have been away for a year and people have forgotten you. If you like having time off, which I do, that’s a good career strategy.
Aidan Gillen
I had forgotten that Jess felt about long words the way that racists feel about black people: She hated them, and wanted to send them back from where they came from.
Nick Hornby
I can think of no better way of redeeming this tragic world today than love and laughter. Too many of the young have forgotten how to laugh, and too many of the elders have forgotten how to love. Would not our lives be lightened if only we could all learn to laugh more easily at ourselves and to love one another?
Theodore Hesburgh
I want to set an example that will never be forgotten.
Terry Fox
It’s a shame, but every time I get something scientific in the script, I read up to find out what I’m talking about – but then I’m on to the next script and it’s forgotten.
Jim Parsons
It’s important to have a good sense of style that sets you apart, so you’re not just forgotten after somebody meets you.

She wondered if all the firsts in her life would go by so quickly, and be forgotten just as quickly.
Judy Blume
All art at some time and in some manner becomes mass entertainment, and if it does not it dies and is forgotten.
Raymond Chandler
There was a little corner of his mind that was still his own, and light came through it, as though a chink in the dark: light out of the past. It was actually pleasant, I think, to hear a kindly voice agin, bringing up memories of wind, and trees, and sun on the grass, and such forgotten things.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I don’t want to be remembered. As long as my kids remember me, I’d rather be forgotten by everybody else.
Mike Tyson
‘Tryin’ to Get the Feeling’ has been a revelation. I’d forgotten how powerful that was. I’d forgotten how deep I can crawl into that one, and maybe because I’m older it means even more.
Barry Manilow
[Albert] Hoxie, my Western Civilization professor. I had him in my freshman year and he opened up an extraordinary world to me that I’ve never forgotten. He used his extensive knowledge of art history to illustrate the development of Western culture and politics.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
The past shouldn’t be forgotten. It should be used as a guide for future situations and not used as a reason to avoid making difficult decisions. There was always a choice.

Jackie Kennedy
Now each one of us, black or white, is a symbol. The war is out in the open and the skin color is a uniform. All the deep and basic similarities of the human condition are forgotten so that we can exaggerate the few differences that exist.
John D. MacDonald
The Cemetery of Forgotten Books is like the greatest, most fantastic library you could ever imagine. Its a labyrinth of books with tunnels, bridges, arches, secret sections – and its hidden inside an old palace in the old city of Barcelona.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I became civilized.
Charles Alexander Eastman

Carl Sandburg
The forgotten man… He works, he votes, generally he prays, but his chief business in life is to pay.
William Graham Sumner

Dave Eggers
When it comes to certain portions of our history, we’ve just forgotten it all.
Joe Morton

Egypt! from whose all dateless tombs arose Forgotten Pharaohs from their long repose, And shook within their pyramids to hear A new Cambyses thundering in their ear; While the dark shades of forty ages stood Like startled giants by Nile’s famous flood.
Lord Byron
We began as mineral. We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again.
I have not forgotten about my dreams to become a singer. If given the chance, I want to take part in a drama OST making and also try out for musicals.
Park Bo-gum
Deeply disturbing in a way that only the most honest stories are, YACCUB is a fiercely written, daring journey through America’s urban wilderness and into the souls of our forgotten brothers. But Wrath James White hasn’t forgotten about them–and after reading this book, neither will you.
Brandon Massey
You can never correct your work well until you have forgotten it.
Only two things happen to writers when they die: Either their work survives, or it becomes forgotten.
Stephen King
When I am grappling with ideas which are radical enough to upset grown-ups, then I am likely to put these ideas into a story which will be marketed for children, because children understand what their parents have rejected and forgotten.
Madeleine L’Engle
If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up.
Robert Mapplethorpe
A tour to India is different from other tours. The expectations to win are very high from our own people, and defeats and poor performances are not forgotten easily.
The forgotten men and women of America will be forgotten no longer.
Donald Trump
In the fairy tale, an incomprehensible happiness rests upon an incomprehensible condition. A box is opened and all evils fly out. A word is forgotten and cities perish. A lamp is lit and love flies away. An apple is eaten and the hope of God is gone.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The one philosophy or religion I find I am most close to is the Buddhist one. I think it is the one that respects others and the one that doesn’t say that this is the only way. I think happiness is the moment when – if you’ve forgotten those little things – they suddenly come back into focus for you.
Penelope Cruz
In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
Terry Pratchett
The battle in American politics used to be for the middle. Now, it’s all about the building and the intensity of support on the far left and far right wings of both parties. And we have forgotten about the people here in the middle.
Hamilton Jordan
Whatever you did in the past is quickly forgotten.
N’Golo Kante
Things are forgotten so fast today. Even if 1,000 people are slaughtered, the next day you forget. There has to be new news every day.
But a day must come when the fire of youth will be quenched in my veins, when winter will dwell in my heart, when his snow flakes will whiten my locks, and his mists will dim my eyes. Then my friends will lie in their lonely grave, and I alone will remain like a solitary stalk forgotten by the reaper.
Heinrich Heine
France and the whole of Europe have a great culture and an amazing history. Most important thing, though, is that people there know how to live! In America they’ve forgotten all about it. I’m afraid that the American culture is a disaster.
Johnny Depp
I am a quick study – I can memorize a script in an hour – but I can’t remember a name three seconds. I’ve even forgotten my wife’s name on occasion.
Don Adams
No matter what I’ve published – and you can look it up, I’ve published quite a lot in science, quite a few books too – none of it’s very important. All will be forgotten and in a few years time will be a few comments in eight-point type in footnotes at the bottom of the page somewhere.
Robert Winston
When I look through my sketchbooks, they bring back moments that I would otherwise have completely forgotten.
Susan Minot
It’s better to be talked about than to be forgotten. (In other words, if you are the subject of gossip or speculation, enjoy it! Don’t let someone else’s negative energy control you!).
Robin Meade
The world that you see is like a motion picture. We are engrossed in a film and we have forgotten that we’re sitting in a movie theatre.

We have forgotten what rocks and plants still know – we have forgotten how to be – to be still – to be ourselves – to be where life is here and now
Eckhart Tolle
We have come too far, – struggled too long, – sacrificed too much and have too much left to do, – to allow that which we have achieved for the good of all to be swept away without a fight. And we have not forgotten how to fight.
Lane Kirkland
Where do these images comes from and where do they return? What is it that projects these images? How is it that we are the screen? How is it that we have forgotten that we are the Self and that nothing but the Self exists?
Frederick Lenz
As a kid, I knew all of the dinosaurs. It’s one of those tragedies that I’ve forgotten what dinosaurs are cool.
Matt Smith
France, and the whole of Europe have a great culture and an amazing history. Most important thing though is that people there know how to live! In America they’ve forgotten all about it. I’m afraid that the American culture is a disaster.
Johnny Depp
I am a ghost in a land of phantoms and forgotten nightmares.
Ilsa J. Bick
Candle needs darkness to show his talents. Good shines only beside the bad; it will disappear when the bad disappears. Where there is no darkness, candle is forgotten.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I am humble enough to recognize that I have made mistakes, but politically astute enough to know that I have forgotten what they are.
Michael Heseltine
It must not be forgotten in fairness to the National Government that apartheid is not just a policy of oppression but an attempt – in my opinion an attempt doomed to failure – to find an alternative to a policy of racial integration which is fair to both white and black.
Harry Oppenheimer
Memories must enter the bloodstream, must churn awhile through the heart’s mill, must be crushed and polished, be nearly forgotten or cling like burs to other stories before they spill forth in purple patterns, shapes of small bones and worm rot, shapes of clouds and the spaces between leaves.
Keith Miller
… I could have said something profound, but you would have forgotten it in 15 minutes – which is the afterlife of a graduation speech.
Art Buchwald
To be forgotten is not something horrible; not to be remembered ever again is something horrible!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Some books are undeservedly forgotten; none are undeservedly remembered.
W. H. Auden
Time extracts various values from a painter’s work. When these values are exhausted the pictures are forgotten, and the more a picture has to give, the greater it is.
Henri Matisse
My life’s work has been to prompt others and be forgotten. Remember that night when Christian came to your balcony? That moment sums up my life. While I was below in the shadows, others climbed up to kiss the sweet rose.
Cyrano de Bergerac
We can’t let the past be forgotten.
George Takei
So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it’s gratifying to have something you have done linger in people’s memories.

We have forgotten that democracy must live as it thinks and think as it lives.
Agnes Meyer Driscoll
What, then is truth?… Truths are illusions about which one has forgotten that this is what they are.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Edward Eager wrote a series of children’s books that are in danger of being forgotten. But they’re divine: stories about ordinary kids who stumble on magical things – a coin, a lake, a book, a thyme garden, a well. The magic changes them, they try to change the magic, the magic moves on.
Laura Lippman
A poem is learned by heart and then not again repeated. We will suppose that after a half year it has been forgotten: no effort of recollection is able to call it back again into consciousness.
Hermann Ebbinghaus
As a scientist, I am not sure anymore that life can be reduced to a class struggle, to dialectical materialism, or any set of formulas. Life is spontaneous and it is unpredictable, it is magical. I think that we have struggled so hard with the tangible that we have forgotten the intangible.
Diane Frolov
Oh my gosh, I’d give so much advice to a younger version of myself. I would say it really does get better as you get older. The things that mean so much, the things that seem like, you know, it’s going to cause the end of the world, are all things that I’ve already forgotten.
Ginnifer Goodwin
It is impossible to remain indifferent to Japanese culture. It is a different civilisation where all you have learnt must be forgotten. It is a great intellectual challenge and a gorgeous sensual experience.
Alain Ducasse
Maybe the tragedy of the human race was that we had forgotten that we are each divine.
Shirley MacLaine
I plainly felt that, had God given me such a retirement with the companion I desired, I should have forgotten the work for which I was born and have set up my rest in this world.
John Wesley
God forgives us and remembers our sin no more; therefore, stop remembering what God has forgotten.
Joyce Meyer
Make them laugh, make them cry, and hack to laughter. What do people go to the theatre for? An emotional exercise. I am a servant of the people. I have never forgotten that.
Mary Pickford
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
Albert Einstein

Kurt Vonnegut
Don’t ask me about my career – I’ve forgotten most of it.
Timothy Dalton
Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you with an infinite love.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
She looked around herself, disoriented, like she’d forgotten we were at lunch. Like she’d forgotten we were even at school-surprised that we were not alone in some private place. I understood that feeling exactly. It was hard to remember the rest of the world when I was with her.
Stephenie Meyer
What necessity impels a writer who has produced fifty books to write still one more? Why this proliferation, this fear of being forgotten, this debased coquetry?
Emile M. Cioran
Forgotten were the elementary rules of logic, that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and that what can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.
Christopher Hitchens
Fame or infamy, either one is preferable to being forgotten when you have passed from this realm.
Christopher Paolini
While Labour Party orators readily remember the 1980s for Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s free-booting variety of entrepreneurial meritocracy, what gets forgotten is that Thatcher also gave the heave-ho to the old establishment’s notion of merit – good breeding, a posh school, and so on.
Terry Glavin
I love when people cover songs that are familiar but have been kind of forgotten about.
Cassadee Pope
I try not to think about legacy because it is all В­folly. If you study history, even recent history, you’ll find many people who were quite significant in their time but are completely forgotten.
Steve Martin
The wind is awake, pretty leave, pretty leaves, Heed not what he says, he deceives, he deceives; Over and over To the lowly clover He has lisped the same love (and forgotten it, too). He will be lisping and pledging to you.
John Vance Cheney
I realised that you could easily turn any room into a cinema with a projector, so I went on and on at my parents for one. They eventually got me a projector for Christmas when I was ten, and I realised I’d made a ridiculous mistake – I’d forgotten to say ‘movie’ projector; I got a still one.
Kevin Brownlow
They left no books , Memorial to their lonely thought In grey parishes: rather they wrote On men’s hearts and in the minds Of young children sublime words Too soon forgotten. God in his time Or out of time will correct this.
R. S. Thomas
The things we remember best are those better forgotten.
Baltasar Gracian
We all want to explain ourselves. Nobody wants to be forgotten.
Chuck Palahniuk
I’ve decided that the worst part of loneliness isn’t being alone. It’s being forgotten.
Tawni O’Dell
For, though the origin of most of our words is forgotten, each word was at first a stroke of genius, and obtained currency, because for the moment it symbolized the world to the first speaker and to the hearer. The etymologist finds the deadest word to have been once a brilliant picture.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
And so I write this for you, My Sarah. With the hope that one day, when you’re old enough, this story that lives with me, will live with you as well. When a story is told, it is not forgotten. It becomes something else, a memory of who we were; the hope of what we can become.
Tatiana de Rosnay
How do I know that loving life is not a delusion? How do I know that in hating death I am not like a man who, having left home in his youth, has forgotten the way back?
What does a river like the Vistula carry away with it? Everything that goes to pieces: wood, glass, pencils, pacts … chairs, bones, and sunsets too. What had long been forgotten rose to memory, floating on its back or stomach, with the help of the Vistula.
Gunter Grass
It took me some years to clear my head of what Paris wanted me to admire about it, and to notice what I preferred instead. Not power-ridden monuments, but individual buildings which tell a quieter story: the artist’s studio, or the Belle Epoque house built by a forgotten financier for a just-remembered courtesan.
Julian Barnes
It is tragic that so few young people in Western democracies vote. They have forgotten that their ancestors fought for the right to choose and change their leaders. They don’t realise that their votes are more important than their tweets or Facebook posts.
Kofi Annan
I feel my heart ache, but I’ve forgotten what that feeling means.
Chuck Palahniuk
I had forgotten this about love: how the simple things- the turn away, the turn towards- could be so complicated, and how the complicated things- the stolen night, the right words- could be so simple.
David Levithan
Write your name in kindness, love and mercy on the hearts of the thousands you come in contact with year by year, and you will never be forgotten.
Thomas Chalmers
If you are afraid of death, be afraid. The point is to get with it, to let it take over – fear, ghosts, pains, transience, dissolution, and all. And then comes the hitherto unbelievable surprise; you don’t die because you were never born. You had just forgotten who you are.
Alan Watts
It is terrible how much has been forgotten, which is why, I suppose, remembering seems a holy thing.
Anita Diament
Evil people you never forget them. And that’s the aim of any actress-never to be forgotten.
Bette Davis
Our God and Souldiers we alike adore,Evn at the Brink of danger; not before:After deliverance, both alike required;Our Gods forgotten, and our Souldiers slighted.
Francis Quarles
