    Lovely quotes….may forget them but the remembrances of reading them and enjoying them momentarily will remain…etched in mind. I read long ago: “Education is all what remains, long after all what we read in school has long been forgotton….perhaps that pertains to memory too.”

    Hello Shawn, a wonderful time of day when I have time to come and read your quotes, then I can share them with family and friends.

    Memories are quotes that are full of words of wisdom. Great memories for me are when we sit looking through all the photos that my mum had collected over the years. Many of them brought smiles to our faces, and some of them even made us laugh. Others brought tears because some members of the family are no longer here. The photos brought back memories of events, birthdays, marriages, holidays, births, deaths and the love that was shared. Pictures we took years ago still making us smile made me realize the importance of memories. Photos capture our memories in print, but our memories are always with us in our minds. Here are some quotes I would like to share.
