Memory quotes
Memory
As far as many statistical series that are related to activities of mankind are concerned, the date that divides human history into two equal parts is well within living memory. The world of today is as different from the world I was born in as that world was from Julius Caesar s. I was born in the middle of human history, to date, roughly. Almost as much has happened since I was born as happened before.

- Boulding, Kenneth Ewart
Ah! Memory impairment: the free prize at the bottom of every vodka bottle!

- Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro and Eric Kaplan
The effectiveness of our memory banks is determined not by the total number of facts we take in, but the number we wish to reject.

- Wynne-Tyson, Jon
K is a consonant that we get from the Greeks, but it can be traced away back beyond them to the Cerathians, a small commercial nation inhabiting the peninsula of Smero. In their tongue it was called _Klatch_, which means "destroyed." The form of the letter was originally precisely that of our H, but the erudite Dr. Snedeker explains that it was altered to its present shape to commemorate the destruction of the great temple of Jarute by an earthquake, _circa_ 730 B.C. This building was famous for the two lofty columns of its portico, one of which was broken in half by the catastrophe, the other remaining intact. As the earlier form of the letter is supposed to have been suggested by these pillars, so, it is thought by the great antiquary, its later was adopted as a simple and natural -- not to say touching -- means of keeping the calamity ever in the national memory. It is not known if the name of the letter was altered as an additional mnemonic, or if the name was always _Klatch_ and the destruction one of nature's pums. As each theory seems probable enough, I see no objection to believing both -- and Dr. Snedeker arrayed himself on that side of the question.

- Ambrose Bierce
It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.

- P.D. James
Memory tempers prosperity, mitigates adversity, control youth, and delights old age.

- Firmianus Lactantius
One of the horrors of hell is the undying memory of a misspent life.

One must have a good memory to be able to keep the promises one makes.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
Your body is just the place your memory calls home.

- Deepak Chopra
Every man's memory is his private literature.

- Huxley, Aldous
Memory is the mother of all wisdom.

- Aeschylus
I have a memory like an elephant. In fact, elephants often consult me.

- Coward, Noel
For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a Macaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros.

- Barrymore, Ethel
Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.

- Williams, Tennessee
Our memory is like a shop in the window of which is exposed now one, now another photograph of the same person. And as a rule the most recent exhibit remains for some time the only one to be seen.

- Proust, Marcel
Be careful about lending a friend money. It may damage her memory.

The charm, one might say the genius of memory, is that it is choosy, chancy, and temperamental: it rejects the edifying cathedral and indelibly photographs the small boy outside, chewing a hunk of melon in the dust.

- Bowen, Elizabeth
Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.

- Leonardo da Vinci
It is always easier to draw on the storehouse of memory than to find something original to say.

Memory is the scribe of the soul.
