Quote for August 2000


"The first notion is placed in the forecourt:
the second in the atrium:
the remainder are committed not just to bedrooms and parlours
but to statues and the like...
...This done, when it is required to revive the memory
one begins from the first place to run through all
demanding what has been entrusted to them,
of which one will be reminded by the image."

 

Quintilian, a Roman orator and teacher of rhetoric (AD c.35-c.100)
Speaking about memory (For more details of his system contact us)
