The Things They Carried

"Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story."

This quote should inspire anyone to tell their stories. It should create a drive within us to share with the world what we have to say, be it fact, fiction, or the things in between. The full quote is below. I the context of the author is even more important.

"Forty-three years old, and the war occurred half a lifetime ago, and yet the remembering makes it now. And sometimes remembering will lead to a story, which makes it forever. That’s what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can’t remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story."
