— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wish to bean inspector of volcanoes.I want to study cloud formationsand memorize the windand learn by heart the habits ofthe ponderosa pine.
— memorizing quotation by Edward Abbey
I like rhyme because it is memorable, I like form because having to work to a pattern gives me original ideas.
I was asked to memorize what I did not understand;
and, my memory being so good, it refused to be insulted in that manner.
Good design is making something intelligible and memorable.
Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing about.
The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.
It is therefore necessary that memorable things should be committed to writing, and not wholly betaken i. e. , committed to slippery memory which seldom yields a certain reckoning.
The headline is the most important element of an ad.

Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm.
Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation a new meaning, no matter how frightening or difficult. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it you can accomplish miracles.
The world's battlefields have been in the heart chiefly;
more heroism has been displayed in the household and the closet, than on the most memorable battlefields in history.
Nations! What are nations? Tartars! and Huns! and Chinamen! Like insects they swarm. The historian strives in vain to make them memorable. It is for want of a man that there are so many men. It is individuals that populate the world.
Don't count the days, make the days count.
The past is only the present become invisible and mute;
and because it is invisible and mute, its memorized glances and its murmurs are infinitely precious. We are tomorrow's past.
Nothing is more memorable than a smell.
One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains; another, a moonlit beach; a third, a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town. Smells detonate softly in our memory like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years. Hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once. A complex vision leaps out of the undergrowth.
If you want to live a memorable life, you have to be the kind of person who remembers to remember.
This search for what you want is like tracking something that doesn't want to be tracked. It takes time to get a dance right, to create something memorable.

The first day was memorable for me. I walked into this studio with these giant eyes, slowly met everybody and got to see the story boards and sketches of our characters. I got the see the sets and was just amazed that all this was to be something we all were going to be part of for almost a year.
That's kind of the theme of Own the Night.

For me, being memorable is more important than winning.
I remember when I saw 'The Matrix' when I was 13, I saw it in the theaters, and I was so blown away by it. It was one of the most memorable experiences I definitely ever had in the theater.
To play a lawyer and have one year of law school under your belt, you sort of know what you're talking about! I'm able to memorize the legal courtroom stuff a lot faster than I would have been able to otherwise.
I've done about four deaths in films now, and I think it's quite good because then it's sort of a memorable moment in the film.
It's important to be willing to make mistakes.
The worst thing that can happen is you become memorable.
When I did plays in high school and college, I never remember memorizing my lines, but once I had blocking, I had all my lines memorized. Once I had movement associated with words, it was fine. Before I had blocking, it was just text on a page. Once it became embodied, it was much easier.
I'm not really capable of memorizing stuff without moving around, that's how I do it.
It goes all the way back to 'Psycho.' Movies with twists like that are memorable because they're so simple.
What I remember about that experience is that if you went to go see ' Born On The Fourth Of July' and you happened to take a bathroom break real quick or grab some popcorn, you probably missed me. It was short, but it was memorable.
The first Indy was definitely the one I remember.
It's my favorite race I've ever done. It's the most memorable race I've ever done, for sure. Even more than when I won. I just remember everything about it.
