The giver quotes: what a Receiver of memories do

When the new Receiver failed, the memories that she had received were released. They didn’t come back to me. They went…

I don’t know, exactly. They went to the place where memories once existed before Receivers were created. Someplace out there – . . . And then the people had access to them. Apparently that’s the way it was, once. Everyone had access to memories.

It was chaos… They really suffered for a while. Finally it subsided as the memories were assimilated. But it certainly made them aware of how they need a Receiver to contain all that pain. And knowledge.

The Giver, page 131, written by Lois Lowry
