Memories Faded

Famous quotes containing the words memories and/or faded:

    We are prisoners of the world’s demented sink.
    The soft enchantments of our years of innocence
    Are harvested by accredited experience
    Our fondest memories soon turn to poison
    And only oblivion remains in season.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Here were poor streets where faded gentility essayed with scanty space and shipwrecked means to make its last feeble stand, but tax-gatherer and creditor came there as elsewhere, and the poverty that yet faintly struggled was hardly less squalid and manifest than that which had long ago submitted and given up the game.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
