forgetting

I’ve spent so much time making sure I don’t underestimate my opponents that I’ve forgotten it’s just as dangerous to overestimate them as well.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

The only thing more painful than being an active forgetter is to be an inert rememberer.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Different people remember things differently, and you’ll not get any two people to remember anything the same, whether they were there or not.

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy

Let me give you some advice, bastard: never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.

Tyrion Lannister (The Imp), Game Of Thrones

Everyone hides who they are at least some of their time. Sometimes you bury that part of yourself so deeply that you have to be reminded it’s there at all. And sometimes you just want to forget who you are all together.

Dexter Morgan, Dexter
