“You can only take steps toward the future you want. It’s not guaranteed to be there.

This is why you have to live inside each beautiful or terrible thing as it happens to you because the present may be all you’ve got. And if there’s more ahead then the present is where you can really shape your future.” – Amanda Howells

“Memory offers up its gifts only when jogged by something in the present. It isn’t a storehouse of fixed images and words, but a dynamic associative network in the brain that is never quiet and is subject to revision each time we retrieve an old picture or old words.” – Siri Hustvedt
