More From Walter Benjamin
- "Memory is not an instrument for exploring the past but its theatre. It is the medium of past experience, as the ground is the medium in which dead cities lie interred."
- "The art of storytelling is reaching its end because the epic side of truth, wisdom, is dying out."
- "Counsel woven into the fabric of real life is wisdom."
More In Experience
- "There are people out there who want me to fail, who want Jude to fail, who want our relationship to fail."― Sadie Frost
- "If people choose to live their life in a way that does not confront the more troubling aspects of their experience, that’s fine, if it works for them. But it will probably make them uncomfortable if they come up against somebody like me. So they just shouldn’t! They shouldn’t read my work!"― Joyce Maynard
- "I had a heartbreaking experience when I was 9. I always wanted to be a guard. The most wonderful girl in the world was a guard. When I got polio and then went back to school, they made me a guard. A teacher took away my guard button."― Francis Ford Coppola
