our redemption is.
Estelle Laughlin, Holocaust Survivor
Memory stands against the destructive power of time. This property of memory is extremely important. It is customary to divide time into past, present and future. But thanks to memory, the past enters the present, and the future is as if predicted by the present, connected to the past.
Dmitry Likhachev, Russian philologist, cultural anthropologist, and doctor of philological sciences
