The pleasure of memory are among those pleasures that our fellow men cannot rob us of. Through every strange scene of our life, we can always look back through memory, to happy days and happy scenes; when our young and thoughtless hearts were free from the trials, the anxieties and cares of our more mature years. Memory leads us back to childhood’s home and childhood’s happiest hours, when our young souls were free from the stains of remorse, and the clouds of sin, and our young hearts leapt with innocent joys !! Free from all sensuous pleasures, tastes or appetites, we thought not of the future, but as some bright and sunny land…
Memory is the diary of our souls, wherein is printed all the pleasures, pains, trials and troubles of childhood, youth, maturity and riper years – a chart on which our track is marked, pointing out all the dangers we have safely travelled through on our voyage to eternity !!
Memory is one of the important cognitive process – memory involves remembering and forgetting. These are like two faces of a coin; though these two are opposed to each other by nature, they play an important role in the life of an individual.
Memories, are not always beautiful thoughts – when you are happy, memories might bring tears in your eyes; or when you are feeling extremely low, memories might cheer you up. But staying too much in the past with memories, hampers our present. It is rightly said, “past is a good place to visit, but not the right place to stay for a long time”.


  1. This is great. I am often haunted by my childhood memories…good and bad. As I always say,The great thing about having a memory like mine, is that you never forget anything. However, the curse is that you remember…everything.
