Bon mot for the week

"Memory is... similar to anticipation: an instrument of simplification and selection."

Alain de Botton (1969- )

Memory, yes, and also history. I feel I might have a post or two in me this week about the upcoming 'Serf Liberation Day'.

By the way, I absolutely adore de Botton's writing. Please check out my review of his early work, Essays On Love.
