"Every perception is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination."

Atque etiam quosdam cepisse oblivia rerum
Cunctarum, neque se possent cognoscere ut ipsi. lucretius
Dr Mores immort:
Things out of mind are remembred sometimes by meeting with other things of like nature: as dreames never thought uppon in that morning at the time of awakeing are remembred by some actions of the like nature met withall in the day time.
Forgetfullnesse ariseth sometimes out of the want of thinking of things. Things seene & words heard at the same distance are distinctly remembred. So are distance & widenes or extension & bignesse. So are things which enter not the sences as meditations, thoughts, dreames, & that a man hath remembred.
