I CAN'T SEE ANYMORE

"I DON'T SEE ANYTHING ANY MORE: I CAN SEARCH THE PAST IN VAIN, I CAN ONLY FIND THESE SCRAPS OF IMAGES AND I AM NOT SURE WHAT THEY REPRESENT, WHETHER THEY ARE MEMORIES OR JUST FICTION.." 

- NAUSEA, JEAN-PAUL SARTRE

“WHAT DID YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAID ALL MEMORY IS FICTION?” I ASK.  “A MEMORY IS ITS OWN THING EACH TIME IT’S RECALLED. IT’S NOT ABSOLUTE. STORIES BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS OFTEN SHARE MORE WITH FICTION THAN FACT. BOTH FICTIONS AND MEMORIES ARE RECALLED AND RETOLD. THEY’RE BOTH FORMS OF STORIES. STORIES ARE THE WAY WE LEARN. STORIES ARE HOW WE UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. BUT REALITY HAPPENS ONLY ONCE.” 

- I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS, IAN REID

"IF ONLY YOU COULD REMEMBER, SOMETHING WOULD BE WHOLE AGAIN; EVEN IF THE MEMORY WAS DIFFICULT TO ACCEPT, IT WOULD BE BETTER THAN NOT-KNOWING WHICH HAS DEFINED AND LIMITED YOU FOR YEARS, MAKING YOU WEAK AND IRRESOLUTE, A CREATURE ATTUNED TO FEAR, INCAPABLE OF FULLY ASSENTING TO YOUR OWN LIFE."

“ALTHOUGH NOT QUITE A GRAINY, SEPIA FILM OF A DISTANT ERA, THERE IS NONETHELESS A PATCHY AND VAGUE QUALITY TO THESE MEMORIES, ALL OF WHICH ARE IMBUED WITH A PRIOR AND DIFFERENT VERSION OF MY OWN SELF.”

- THE MEMORY OF PLACE: A PHENOMENOLOGY OF THE UNCANNY, DYLAN TRIGG

“THE REALITY THAT I HAD KNOWN NO LONGER EXISTED. THE PLACES THAT WE HAVE KNOWN BELONG NOW ONLY TO THE LITTLE WORLD OF SPACE ON WHICH WE MAP THEM FOR OUR OWN CONVENIENCE. NONE OF THEM WAS EVER MORE THAN A THIN SLICE, HELD BETWEEN THE CONTIGUOUS IMPRESSIONS THAT COMPOSED OUR LIFE AT THAT TIME; REMEMBRANCE OF A PARTICULAR FORM IS BUT REGRET FOR A PARTICULAR MOMENT; AND HOUSES, ROADS, AVENUES ARE AS FUGITIVE, ALAS, AS THE YEARS.”

- SWANN'S WAY, MARCEL PROUST
