Quote of the Day

P. J. O'Rourke
On the recollection of so many and great favours and blessings, I now, with a high sense of gratitude, presume to offer up my sincere thanks to the Almighty, the Creator and Preserver.
A poet ought not to pick nature's pocket. Let him borrow, and so borrow as to repay by the very act of borrowing. Examine nature accurately, but write from recollection, and trust more to the imagination than the memory.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
From childhood I was passionately fond of music and wanted to be a musician. I have no recollection of any real desire ever to be anything else.
John Philip Sousa

My first recollection is that of a bugle call.
The harvest of old age is the recollection and abundance of blessing previously secured.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

The idol of today pushes the hero of yesterday out of our recollection; and will, in turn, be supplanted by his successor of tomorrow.
It is not that the child lives in a world of imagination, but that the child within us survives and starts into life only at rare moments of recollection, which makes us believe, and it is not true, that, as children, we were imaginative?
In love, unlike most other passions, the recollection of what you have had and lost is always better than what you can hope for in the future.
Recollection is the only paradise from which we cannot be turned out.
My very first recollection of life on earth was waking up in bed with my mother, and she was showing me a picture of my father, Charles Jackson, with a group of soldiers.
I have always been honest about my recollection of events.
Recollection is not something that I can summon up, it simply comes and I am the servant of it.
Non-fiction, and in particular the literary memoir, the stylised recollection of personal experience, is often as much about character and story and emotion as fiction is.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I didn't really hear any other music other than what my dad was working on until I was 12. My recollection of hearing other music was that I liked some things that I heard but I always thought, 'Where's the rest of it?'

The bare recollection of anger kindles anger.
My friend Quincy Jones says we won our first Grammys together in 1963. I have no recollection. I don't even remember the room. When he showed me the picture, I remembered what I wore. But it's like awards don't mean anything.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
