I usually doze off between 7:30 and 9 p.m. while putting my baby to sleep. Then I suddenly wake up remembering I'm an adult with no bedtime. I spend the next four hours catching up on reading, e-mails, and other adult pursuits until I collapse for good until sunrise.
I write for kids because I think the most interesting (and most humorous) stories come from people's childhoods. When I was writing 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid,' I had a blast talking on the phone to my younger brother, Patrick, remembering all of the things that happened to our family when we were growing up.
There has never yet been a man in our history who led a life of ease whose name is worth remembering.
A sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier times.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
In remembering those who lost their lives in the London attacks and the September 11th attacks we continue our commitment to fighting for freedom, democracy and justice.
Marriage is not just spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash.
The process of learning requires not only hearing and applying but also forgetting and then remembering again.
Remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.
James J. Corbett
I think taking vacations and turning off the phone and only doing emails or social media for a specific short amount of time helps with work/life balance. If I'm checking it all day I start to feel cuckoo-bird. So I just do it once or twice a day instead of a thousand. And then remembering that it doesn't matter. It just doesn't matter.
At my age the only problem is with remembering names. When I call everyone darling, it has damn all to do with passionately adoring them, but I know I'm safe calling them that. Although, of course, I adore them too.
Take without forgetting, and give without remembering.
Bryant H. McGill
Some choices we live not only once but a thousand times over, remembering them for the rest of our lives.
Let us be of good cheer, however, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never come.
James Russell Lowell
How little remains of the man I once was, save the memory of him! But remembering is only a new form of suffering.
I always have trouble remembering three things: faces, names, and - I can't remember what the third thing is.
Activate yourself to duty by remembering your position, who you are, and what you have obliged yourself to be.
Thomas a Kempis
To be an artist, you don't have to compose music or paint or be in the movies or write books. It's just a way of living. It has to do with paying attention, remembering, filtering what you see and answering back, participating in life.
There is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.
Alfred de Musset
I was never any good at remembering dates, but now I hardly have to. When the first bulb catalogs get delivered and the hens start laying again, that's all the notice I'll need to know that winter has passed.
The experiencing self lives in the moment; it is the one that answers the question, 'Does it hurt?' or 'What were you thinking about just now?' The remembering self is the one that answers questions about the overall evaluation of episodes or periods of one's life, such as a stay in the hospital or the years since one left college.
Experienced happiness refers to your feelings, to how happy you are as you live your life. In contrast, the satisfaction of the remembering self refers to your feelings when you think about your life.
Remembering that man is indeed the microcosm, the universe in miniature, the Divine Dance of the future should be able to convey with its slightest gestures some significance of the universe.
Ruth St. Denis
Memory that yearns to join the centre, a limb remembering the body from which it has been severed, like those bamboo thighs of the god.
In remembering the appalling suffering of war on both sides, we recognise how precious is the peace we have built in Europe since 1945.
Queen Elizabeth II
When all of us are forgotten, people will still be remembering Stephen King.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
