notes on cows and memory and happiness

per the lecture we had in seminar last wednesday…

southern hemisphere cows

“Blessed are the forgetful, for they get the better even of their blunders.”

or maybe:

“The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time.”

however. Friedrich (we may or may not be on first-name basis), in Uses and Disadvantages of History, says one must not regard history the same way a cow does. (as does Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, in that case.)

(both quotes originally expressed by Friedrich Nietzsche)
