Milan Kundera, Fragment from Ignorance (On time and recollections)

The more vast the amount of time we’ve left behind us, the more irresistible is the voice calling us to return to it. This pronouncement seems to state the obvious, and yet it is false. Men grow old, the end draws near, each moment becomes more and more valuable, and there is no time to waste over recollections. It is important to understand the mathematical paradox is nostalgia: that it is most powerful in early youth, when the volume of the life gone by is quite small. 

-Milan Kundera
