Quote of the day #22

“Memory is attention in the past tense: what you remember now, is what you noticed before.”

Daniel Goleman in Vital Lies, Simple Truths – The Psychology of Self-Deception (where he points out that memory therefore has 2 possible sources of skewing: errors made during the original perception and additional errors during the recollection)
