Descendant of kings, fishermen, and farmers
What does it mean to remember? It is to live in more than one world, to prevent the past from fading and to call upon the future to illuminate it. It is to revive fragments of existence, to rescue lost beings, to cast harsh light on faces and events, to drive back the sands that cover the surface of things, to combat oblivion and to reject death.
Elie Weisel, "All Rivers Run to the Sea: Memoirs."
