We just want to be remembered before something is set in stone.
I often remembered also that I had been told, that we shall have as many devils biting us, if we go to hell, as we have unconfessed sins on our consciences.
I think people turn to poetry more often than they think they do, or encounter it in more ways than they think that they do. I think we forget the places that we encounter it, say, in songs or in other little bits and pieces of things that we may have remembered from childhood.
I don't think I've done any profound work yet... People ask me, 'How would you want to be remembered?' I tell them I don't want to be remembered! I'm not here to become a Madhubala or receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. I'm not that kind of a person. And I'm not brash about it; it's just the way I am.
People think being remembered most for one character is a negative thing, but I don't. I never expected to be remembered for anything!
Every star, whether it's Harrison Ford or Robert De Niro, is remembered by one film. Persis is a star in the sky - how can a star be forgotten when all you have to do is look up and see her?
Perhaps, once I am gone, the one thing I might be remembered for is having sung a great deal of Mahler with a great many phenomenal conductors. It is wonderful music, very spiritual.
I hope I'm remembered as the king of the world, the noble man who united all the nations of the earth. But that probably won't happen.
One day, I was playing 'The Game of Life,' the board game, with a mess of kids, and I wasn't quite sure how, but it seemed different than the game I remembered playing as a kid. So I bought an old game, from 1960, and it was different.
In every school, more boys wanted to be remembered as a star athlete than as a brilliant student.
James S. Coleman
So I had to just kind of go back to the hotel, take a shower, sit quiet, dig down deep, warm up, and allow myself to move into some kind of zone. And then I remembered that a lot of my favorite musical moments are not about perfection.
Walking down the red carpet, suddenly I felt very special and different. All the flashlights from cameras and requesting voices from the media, the scene, it was just like what I remembered seeing on TV or a movie when I was a little girl - the scene only when movie stars appeared.
I'd like to be remembered as one who kept my priorities in the right order.
S. Truett Cathy
I think we all want to be remembered for what we did.
When I went back to visit my native Berlin after World War II, I noticed that the only thing I really remembered from my childhood Berlin days is the shoe store.
I remembered seeing it and it was this metallic turbine and I thought it was beautiful. I had never been in a power plant before, but I felt, without being overly dramatic, compelled to make photographs of this for myself.
The process was remarkably cathartic. I'd sit and listen to my father's voice - having not heard some of these tapes for 30 years and hearing his voice laying me down for a nap, our giggles and cooking dinner - and I remembered all those wonderful days. Normal days.
Just to be remembered is good enough for me. Lots of people are forgotten.
I want it to be remembered that Ozzy was the first celebrity who was brave enough to open up his private life to the public. He was the first.
In reading plays, however, it should always be remembered that any play, however great, loses much when not seen in action.
George Pierce Baker
I was probably unusually close to my parents, so I do what I can now to preserve the integrity of their memory. The Holocaust deserves to be remembered.
I hope that, when I leave this planet, I will have touched a few people in a positive way. That's really what I hope I am remembered for the most.
I'd love to be remembered as a character actor who brought illumination to roles in wonderful plays and who delivered performances that made people think and rethink those roles.
I most want to be remembered for being as great a mother to James and Lennon as my mum was to me and my brother Jamie.
Rosa Parks will be remembered for her lasting contributions to society. Her legacy lives on in the continued struggle for civil rights around the world. She will be missed.
I would like to be proud of having written some poems that will be remembered, but I will never know whether I will have any reason to be proud of that.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
