News room: 10 Quotations About Remembrance

10 Quotations About Remembrance by Jessica Barrah

To mark Armistice Day on 11th November, and Remembrance Sunday on the 13th November, we’ve collated ten quotations about remembering.







1. “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.”

― Laurence Binyon


2. “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."
― Thomas Campbell


3. “In great deeds, something abides. On great fields, something stays. Forms change and pass; bodies disappear; but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls… generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field, to ponder and dream; and lo! the shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls.”
― Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain


4. “I think it is all a matter of love; the more you love a memory the stronger and stranger it becomes”
― Vladimir Nabokov


5. “Do you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?”
― Terry Pratchett, Going Postal


6. “The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them.”
― Czesław Miłosz, The Issa Valley



7. “Remembrance restores possibility to the past, making what happened incomplete and completing what never was. Remembrance is neither what happened nor what did not happen but, rather, their potentialization, their becoming possible once again."
― Giorgio Agamben, Potentialities: Collected Essays in Philosophy


8. “Beauty exists not in what is seen and remembered, but in what is felt and never forgotten.”
― Johnathan Jena


9. “What you remember saves you.”
― W.S. Merwin


10. “Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were."
― Marcel Proust
