    Memory Quotes

    Quotations about Memory

    • If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences. The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient; at others, so bewildered and so weak; and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond control! We are, to be sure, a miracle every way; but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting do seem peculiarly past finding out.
      Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen
    • There is not any memory with less satisfaction than the memory of some temptation we resisted.
    • It's a poor sort of memory that only works backward.
    • For the sense of smell, almost more than any other, has the power to recall memories and it is a pity that you use it so little.
    • The secret of a good memory is attention, and attention to a subject depends upon our interest in it. We rarely forget that which has made a deep impression on our minds.
    • Creditors have better memories than debtors.
      Poor Richard’s Almanac (1758), by Benjamin Franklin
    • Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory.
    • It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.
    • He who is not very strong in memory should not meddle with lying.
    • Nothing fixes a thing so intensely in the memory as the wish to forget it.
