"Every thing he sees, every thing he hears, catches his attention, and is stored up in his memory: he keeps a journal of the actions and conversation of men, and from every scene that presents itself, deduces something to enrich his memory."
— Rousseau, Jean-Jacques (1712-1778); Kenrick, William (1729/30-1779)
(III, p. 287)
