one of my favorite quote on writing is “We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” Yes when we write we just remember the scenario and taste the moment once again.

I like much this one quote
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you" by Maya Angelou, author of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings"
I think it can inspire to write more and more.
