Memory and Its Cultivation

D. Appleton, 1897 - 311 páginas
"One of the most marked features of the present age is the invention of labour and time saving appliances; it is evident that time saved is time gained. In an age which is specially characterised by intellectual progress, much time must necessarily be expended in the acquirement of knowledge, which will serve as a basis for further development. I hope, therefore, that any rules which will lighten labour in this direction will be found useful.

I hope that those who read this book will be able to improve their memories in a corresponding degree"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved).

Página 279 - The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon, With spectacles on nose and pouch on side, His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound.
