“I can never live in reality if I do not learn to tame my memory. The memory tends to be overactive. It presents images to me in season and out of season. If I do not wish to be caught off guard by all of this material, I must learn to sort it all out. Some of it is useful, but much of it is rubbish. Sometimes it is good to remember, but often it is better to forget.”

Belgian Carmelite friar Wilfrid Stinissen
