Memory quotes
Memory
Our memories are card indexes consulted and then returned in disorder by authorities whom we do not control.

- Connolly, Cyril

- Proust, Marcel
Pictures and shapes are but secondary objects and please or displease only in the memory.

- Bacon, Francis

- Byron, Lord

- Tryon Edwards
Memory depends very much on the perspicuity, regularity, and order of our thoughts. Many complain of the want of memory, when the defect is in the judgment; and others, by grasping at all, retain nothing.

- Thomas Fuller
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think--rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.

- Bill Beattie

- Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro and Eric Kaplan
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think -- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men.

- Dewey, John
