Memory quotes

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

- Michel Eyquem deMontaigne

One must always maintain one's connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it. To remain in touch with the past requires a love of memory. To remain in touch with the past requires a constant imaginative effort.

- Bachelard, Gaston

Memory is the only paradise from which we cannot be driven.

- Paul, Jean

Pictures and shapes are but secondary objects and please or displease only in the memory.

- Bacon, Francis

Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with some sweet oblivious antidote cleanse the fraught bosom of that perilous stuff which weighs upon the heart?

- Shakespeare, William

Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us.

- Wilde, Oscar

What a wonderful faculty is memory! -- the most mysterious and inexplicable in the great riddle of life; that plastic tablet on which the Almighty registers with unerring fidelity the records of being, making it the depository of all our words, thoughts and deeds -- this faithful witness against us for good or evil.

- Moodie, Susanna

His heart was as great as the world, but there was no room in it to hold the memory of a wrong.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

The stream of thought flows on; but most of its segments fall into the bottomless abyss of oblivion. Of some, no memory survives the instant of their passage. Of others, it is confined to a few moments, hours or days. Others, again, leave vestiges which are indestructible, and by means of which they may be recalled as long as life endures.

- William James

Remembrance and reflection how allied. What thin partitions divides sense from thought.

- Pope, Alexander

Acts of kindness may soon be forgotten, but the memory of an offense remains.

- Proverb

The more connections that can be made in the brain, the more integrated the experience is within memory.

- Campbell, Don

A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely unhappen.

- Edward de Bono

PAST, n. That part of Eternity with some small fraction of which we have a slight and regrettable acquaintance. A moving line called the Present parts it from an imaginary period known as the Future. These two grand divisions of Eternity, of which the one is continually effacing the other, are entirely unlike. The one is dark with sorrow and disappointment, the other bright with prosperity and joy. The Past is the region of sobs, the Future is the realm of song. In the one crouches Memory, clad in sackcloth and ashes, mumbling penitential prayer; in the sunshine of the other Hope flies with a free wing, beckoning to temples of success and bowers of ease. Yet the Past is the Future of yesterday, the Future is the Past of to-morrow. They are one -- the knowledge and the dream.

- Ambrose Bierce

When we lose one we love, our bitterest tears are called forth by the memory of hours when we loved not enough.

- Maurice Maeterlinck

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

Those who cannot remember the past will spend a lot of time looking for their cars in mall parking lots.

- Trachman, Jay

Every man's memory is his private literature.

- Huxley, Aldous

Memory is the scribe of the soul.

- Aristotle

Adults interfere with a natural biologic development of the child's motor, visual, mental, and artistic abilities when they try to influence the child's work in the early years. The adult's brain has accumulated much more visual and artistic memory than the child's, so there can be no true meeting of adult and child mind unless the adult knows how the child's mind functions in art.

- Rhoda Kellog
