Milan Kundera

Most people deceive themselves with a pair of faiths: they believe in
eternal memory (of people, things, deeds, nations) and in
redressibility (of deeds, mistakes, sins, wrongs). Both are false
faiths. In reality the opposite is true: everything will be forgotten
and nothing will be redressed.
