It stuck with me, as these quotes do, because I am a quote magpie and I like to collect nuggets of wisdom. Memory is something I’ve pondered over the years, this magical thing that either is there or isn’t. If there are in fact multiple other universes and other versions of me roaming about, I like to think one of them would’ve studied psychology and memory. (If this has already happened, I have no knowledge of it)
I like this quote from Oscar Wilde because of my interest in memory, and my love of books – both the kind you read, and the kind you write in. It’s another short one, which means I’m probably going to hunt down something lengthier next week.
Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us.
