Day 3275: Unforgettable lines

Last night, I asked a question about unforgettable lines on Twitter.

Earlier in the day, I had noticed unforgettable lines in a story about CNN’s 2021 Hero of the Year, Shirley Raines, whose non-profit Beauty 2 the Streetz (which she started after her young son died) provides food, clothing, beauty services, and other nourishment to the homeless in Los Angeles.

“You don’t need to be whole to be the missing piece in others’ lives” is profoundly unforgettable.

Do you see unforgettable lines in my other images for today?

In the midst of adding those images to this blog post, I stopped to create (I hope!) unforgettable lines for a new original song, “Forgettable.”

I think there are many unforgettable lines in Paul Simon’s song “The Cool, Cool River” including “sometimes even music cannot substitute for tears.”

I’m looking forward to unforgettable lines from you in the comments section, below, and I hope my gratitude for you is unforgettable!

  1. Er………………..Um……………..The lines I was going to write were obviously more forgettable than I imagined!

  2. The screen door slams
    Mary’s dress waves
    Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
    Hey that’s me and I want you only

    I heard Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road’ and I knew all over again that rock and roll and poetry lived together in my heart and soul, Ann.

  3. Joan’s clean bill of health is a line to remember, as is this poem by Emily Dickinson which I memorized the first time I read it even though, unlike so many of her poems, it can’t be sung to the tune of “The Yellow Rose Of Texas”.

    The Poets light but Lamps —
    Themselves — go out —
    The Wicks they stimulate
    If vital Light

    Inhere as do the Suns —
    Each Age a Lens
    Disseminating their
    Circumference —

    • Now I want to sing all those Emily Dickinson lines to “The Yellow Rose of Texas,” Chris, thanks to your latest unforgettable comment.

  4. love Aaron’s ode to mom, unforgettable.

    ‘what a feeling!’ – Flashdance

  5. A Sinner Kissed an Angel: Song by Frank Sinatra and Tommy Dorsey
