As we go along living our lives, time and again, certain memories reach out to us once more. Some, take it in and use it as a tool to feel good. Other people, have no qualms reliving it again only to feel thankful for the present. But a certain few, take it out and wrap it around them- making it the reality. Neither of the three I mentioned are right nor wrong. No one can and should judge how we use our memories in our lives, for it is ours and ours alone.

We have to remember though that in as much importance the memories had- and continuously have- in our lives, the present needs to be lived. If we remain indifferent to our today and remain stagnant in our past, we build empty wells for our future and be blinded from the greatness of the present.

Here are some beautiful lines/quotes/excerpts that may express your take on memories:

"Memory is good thing if you don't have to deal with the past." -From Before Sunrise

"You erased me from your memories because you thought you were holding me back from having a full and happy life. But you made a mistake. Being with you is the only way I could have a full and happy life." -From 50 First Dates

"Here's a soldier of the South who loves you, Scarlett. Wants to feel your arms around him, wants to carry the memory of your kisses into battle with him. Never mind about loving me, you're a woman sending a soldier to his death with a beautiful memory." -From Gone With The Wind

"Memories warm you up from the inside. 
But they also tear you apart." -Kafka on the shore

"What I like about photographs is that they captire a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce." -Karl Lagerfeld

"Sometimes I think the things I remember are more real than the things I see." -Memoirs of a Geisha

"Experience had taught me that even the most precious memories fade with the passage of time." -The Wedding

"Songs and smells bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It's amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn't even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn't even know had a particular smell." -Something Borrowed

"I think you remember everything. 
You just can't bring it all to mind." -Three Tall Women

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

"The memory has as many moods as the temper, 
and shifts its scenery like a diorama." -Middlemarch

"Memory is the diary we all carry about with us." -Oscar Wilde
