ranata suzuki quote

One day, many years from now when you realize what you’ve lost – you will search for me. Perhaps you’ll email me but there’ll be no reply, or maybe you’ll call my number but it will have changed. And when you give up trying to find me physically, you’ll search for me emotionally. You’ll try to find someone else who will love you as I did or make you laugh as much as I used to but you’ll soon realize there’s nobody else quite like me, I was unique, I was the one for you – and you lost me. And you will try so desperately to find traces of me in every soul you meet for the rest of your days but you will never ever find me. – Ranata Suzuki

Not yet, when I’m gone I’ll be a legend, right now I’m just very good at what I do. – Dick Trickle

For as long as you remember me, I am never entirely lost. When I’m feeling most ghost-like, it is your remembering me that helps remind me that I actually exist. When I’m feeling sad, it’s my consolation. When I’m feeling happy, it’s part of why I feel that way. If you forget me, one of the ways I remember who I am will be gone. If you forget, part of who I am will be gone. – Frederick Buechner

The discipline which I have imparted to you will lead you when I am gone. Practice mindfulness diligently, to attain the goal of awakening. – Gautama Buddha

I miss the way you made me smile when I was broken. I miss the way you made me feel like I was beautiful. I miss the way you looked at me like you couldn’t look anywhere else. I miss the way you held me in the water. I miss the way I’d sneak out through my window onto the roof, and you’d be waiting there to lay under the stars with me. I miss the way you’d do the most risky things, but still made me feel so safe. I miss the way you kissed me. I miss the way we’d walk on the beach together as the sun would set. I miss the bridge we always sat on when we talked about our lives. The ones we’re living now. Without each other. – Lacey Aleshia Turner

You might try then, as I did, to find a sky so full of stars it will blind you again. Only no sky can blind you now. Even with all that iridescent magic up there, your eye will no longer trace constellations. Youll care only about the darkness and youll watch it for hours, for days, maybe even for years, trying in vain to believe youre some kind of indispensable universe-appointed sentinel, as if just by looking you could actually keep it all at bay. It will get so bad youll be afraid to look away, youll be afraid to sleep. – Mark Danielewski

When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.


So baby don’t feel no pain when I’m not there to smile back.

One day, you’ll regret pushing me away, for not appreciating my love for you, for assuming I’ll always stay. But it will be too late. – Angelo Caerlang

One day you’ll realize how much she was there for you when she’s gone.

When I leave your side, you’ll finally realize my worth, my value.


If my absence doesn’t affect your life, then my presence had no meaning in it.

I miss your hands, I miss your face, I miss your voice, and what you’d say. I miss your smile, I miss your arms, I miss your touch, so tender and warm. – Ellen Ten Damme

So lately, been wondering
Who will be there to take my place
When I’m gone, you’ll need love
To light the shadows on your face.

marty rubin quote

What do I care about the universe? It’s people who will miss me when I’m gone. – Marty Rubin

When I was twenty-three I began seeing a psychotherapist because I couldn’t bear the idea that, after the end of an affair, all our shared memories might be expunged from the mind of the other, that they might no longer exist outside my own belief they’d happened. I couldn’t accept the possibility of being the only one who would remember everything about those moments as carefully as I tried to remember them. My life, which exists mostly in the memories of the people I’ve known, is deteriorating at the rate of physiological decay. A color, a sensation, the way someone said a single word – soon it will all be gone. In a hundred and fifty years no one alive will ever have known me. Being forgotten like that, entering that great and ongoing blank, seems more like death than death. – Sarah Manguso

Remember me when I am gone away, gone far away into the silent land. – Christina Rossetti

When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don’t remember my name
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same. – Ed Sheeran

To you, whoever you are, when I am gone – remember to be kind tonight to some lonely person. For me. – Tennessee Williams

When all is said and done, did I matter?

When I’m gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures. – Brian May

They will only care when you are gone.

If you remember anything of me,
after I leave this world,
remember that I loved even
when it was foolish.
That I cared even when
it was unwanted.
When my body is gone
remember my heart.

Don’t cry after my death, I won’t know it. Love me when I am alive. – Luffina Lourduraj

Perhaps one day we’ll meet again as characters in a different story. Maybe we’ll share a lifetime then.
