Famous quotes containing the word retrace:

    From troublous sights and sounds set free;
    In such a twilight hour of breath,
    Shall one retrace his life or see,
    Through shadows, the true face of death?
    Ernest Christopher Dowson (1867–1900)

    He that outlives a wife whom he has long loved, sees himself disjoined from the only mind that has the same hopes, and fears, and interest; from the only companion with whom he has shared much good and evil; and with whom he could set his mind at liberty, to retrace the past or anticipate the future. The continuity of being is lacerated; the settled course of sentiment and action is stopped; and life stands suspended and motionless.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
