„Thinking about one memory tends to activate other memories. …If you are trying to retrieve a particular memory, the flood of memories can cause competition… leaving you with a traffic jam of neural nodes… leaving you with nothing.“

—  Daniel Levitin, kniha The Organized Mind

„Great music is that which penetrates the ear with facility and leaves the memory with difficulty. Magical music never leaves the memory.“

—  Thomas Beecham British conductor and impresario 1879 - 1961

[Beecham admitted to Neville Cardus that he had made this up on the spur of the moment to satisfy an importunate journalist; he acknowledged that it was an oversimplification. (Neville Cardus: 'Sir Thomas Beecham, A Memoir', 1961)]

„What you are is the memory, bundle of memories, experiences, thoughts.“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986

Kontext: So you must ask this question, put this question to yourself, whether your mind can be empty of all its past and yet retain the technological knowledge, your engineering knowledge, your linguistic knowledge, the memory of all that, and yet function from a mind that is completely empty. The emptying of that mind comes about naturally, sweetly without bidding, when you understand yourself, when you understand what you are. What you are is the memory, bundle of memories, experiences, thoughts. When you understand that, look at it, observe it; and when you observe it, see in that observation that there is no duality between the observer and the observed; then when you see that, you will see that your mind can be completely empty, attentive, and in that attention you can act wholly, without any fragmentation.
