"We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come." Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
Peggy Gugenheim in Venice

I wonder if in fact we do remember our previous lives without even realising it. So much of what we do or feel seems inexplicable even to ourselves quite often. What do you think?
