Famous quotes containing the words memory and/or instruction:

    Beauty sat bathing by a spring,
    Where fairest shades did hide her;
    The winds blew calm, the birds did sing,
    The cool streams ran beside her.
    My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye
    To see what was forbidden:
    But better memory said Fie;
    So vain desire was chidden—
    Anthony Munday (1553–1633)

    Everything from airplanes to kitchen blenders—and even chopsticks—comes with an instruction manual. Children, despite all their complexity, do not.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
