Memories are like mulligatawny soup…

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.

Jeremy Irons (b. 1948)

Things don’t really impress me. Memories impress me. It’s not the toys, it’s the people.

R. A. Salvatore (b. 1959)

Repetition doesn’t create memories. New experiences do.

Brian Chesky (b. 1981)

Every journey into the past is complicated by delusions, false memories, false namings of real events.

Adrienne Rich (1929 โ€“ 2012)

There is always tension between the possibilities we aspire to and our wounded memories and mistakes.

Seรกn Brady (b. 1939)

Memories are just stories we tell ourselves about our past; and that’s often why they don’t match when we’ve shared the same experiences with someone.

John Slattery (b. 1962)

Memories are like mulligatawny soup in a cheap restaurant. It is best not to stir them.

P. G. Wodehouse (1881 โ€“ 1975)

I’ve always been fascinated by memory and dreams because they are both completely our own. No one else has the same memories. No one has the same dreams.

Lois Lowry (b. 1937)

Take care of all your memories. For you cannot relive them.

Bob Dylan (b. 1941)

History is a cyclic poem written by time upon the memories of man.

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 โ€“ 1822)

    1. Veera,

      You’re definitely allowed to submit more than one – but there are a couple things you should note:

      1) you should include a link in your post to the d’Verse post with the prompt that you are responding to – those are the rules. It should be clear that your poem is a submission to d’Verse on the post itself.

      2) you should take the time to read other people’s submissions – they want readers no less than you do, and that’s how you build connections.


      1. Yeah,

        1. Iโ€™ll do that from next time, I just didnโ€™t read the rules fully I guess ๐Ÿ˜…

        2. I do like checking out othersโ€™ posts, I just donโ€™t get enough time with my other works bothering me… but Iโ€™ll try my best ๐Ÿ™‚
