May 2020 Office Desk Calendar: -In the building of character and individuality, memory plays an important part, for upon the strength of the impressions received, and the firmness with which they are retained depends on the fiber of character and individuality. Our experiences are indeed the stepping stones to greater attainments and at the same time our guides and protectors from danger. If these May 2020 Office Desk Calendars serve us well in this respect we are saved the pain of repeating the mistakes of the past, and may also profit by remembering and thus avoiding the mistakes of others. As Beattie says: “When memory is preternaturally defective, experience and knowledge will be deficient in proportion, and imprudent conduct and absurd opinion are the necessary consequence.” Bain says: “A character retaining a feeble hold of bitter experience or genuine delight, and unable to revive afterward the impression of the time is, in reality, the victim of an intellectual weakness under the guise of moral weakness. To have constantly before us an estimate of the things that affect us, true to the reality, is one precious condition for having we will always stimulate with an accurate reference to our happiness. The thoroughly educated man, in this respect, is he that can carry with him at all times the exact estimate of what he has enjoyed or suffered from every object that has ever affected him, and in case of encounter can present to the enemy as strong a front as if he was under the genuine impression.
May 2020 Office Desk Calendar
A full and accurate memory, for pleasure or for pain, is the intellectual basis both of prudence as regards self, and sympathy as regards others.” So, we see that the cultivation of the memory is far more than the cultivation and development of a single mental faculty—it is the cultivation and development of our entire mental being—the development of ourselves. To many persons, the words memory, recollection, and remembrance, have the same meaning, but there is a great difference in the exact shade of meaning of each term. These May 2020 Office Desk Calendars should make the distinction between the terms, for by so doing he will be better able to grasp the various points of advice and instruction herein given. Let us examine these terms and these amazing monthly calendars and May 2020 Template Planners.
Locke in his celebrated work, the “Essay Concerning Human Understanding” has clearly stated the difference between the meaning of these several terms. He says: “Memory is the power to revive again in our minds those ideas which after imprinting, have disappeared, or have been laid aside out of sight—when an idea again recurs without the operation of the like object on the external sensory, it is remembrance; if it be sought after by the mind, and with pain and endeavor found, and brought again into view, it is recollection.” Fuller says, commenting on this: “Memory is the power of reproducing in the mind former impressions or percepts. Remembrance and Recollection are the exercise of that power, the former being involuntary or spontaneous, the latter volitional. We remember because we cannot help it but we recollect only through positive effort. The act of remembering, taken by itself, is involuntary. In other words, when the mind remembers without having tried to remember, it acts spontaneously.
Thus it may be said, in the narrow, contrasting senses of the two terms, that we remember by chance, but recollect by intention, and if the endeavor is successful that which is reproduced becomes, by the very effort to bring it forth, more firmly entrenched in the mind than ever.” But the New Psychology makes a little different distinction from that of Locke, as given above. It uses the word memory not only in his sense of “The power to revive, etc.,” but also in the sense of the activities of the mind which tend to receive and store away the various impressions of the senses, and the ideas conceived by the mind, to the end that they may be reproduced voluntarily, or involuntarily, thereafter. The distinction between remembrance and recollection, as made by Locke, is adopted as correct by The New Psychology.
