"[Y]ou have the capacity to be moved by countless things all at once, both in your senses and your intelligence, and in such a way as to give your assent to some, and to reject others, or to suspend judgement; and to preserve in your mind so many impressions from so many diverse objects, in such a way that when moved by them, your mind comes to conceive ideas that correspond to the impressions that were originally made on it, and so from these countless objects, you derive and preserve the arts, one after another, and also memories."

(Epictetus, Discourses, trans. Robin Hard)
