It is human nature to look away from illness. We don't enjoy a reminder of our own fragile mortality.
— Roger Ebert

Just a reminder, what other people think of you is none of your business.
Ze Frank reminder quote

The Jews are the living embodiment of the minority, the constant reminder of what duties societies owe their minorities, whoever they might be.
— Abba Eban

No one is without Christianity, if we agree on what we mean by that word. It is every individual's individual code of behavior by means of which he makes himself a better human being than his nature wants to be, if he followed his nature only. Whatever its symbol -- cross or crescent or whatever -- that symbol is man's reminder of his duty inside the human race.
— William Faulkner

The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied... but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.
— John Berger
