Short Term Memory

Famous quotes containing the words short, term and/or memory:

    Remember, that when I speak of pleasures I always mean the elegant pleasures of a rational being, and not the brutal ones of a swine. I mean la bonne chère, short of gluttony; wine, infinitely short of drunkenness; play, without the least gaming; and gallantry, without debauchery.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Dead drunk
    is the term I think of,
    insensible,
    neither cool nor warm,
    without a head or a foot.
    To be drunk is to be intimate with a fool.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    “I have done it,” says my memory. “I cannot have done it,” says my pride, refusing to budge. In the end—my memory yields.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
