to revive.

"When we're young, we stifle many possible selves to channel our energy into one, but the others can probably never be fully smothered. They merely wait for a trigger to revive. That can be a new place, a new person, or, most powerfully, both."

— Eve Fairbanks, "Romance, the Quirky Souvenir" in The New York Times
