Cognition is "the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses". It encompasses processes such as attention, the formation of knowledge, memory and working memory, judgment and evaluation, reasoning and "computation", problem solving and decision making, comprehension and production of language. Cognitive processes use existing knowledge and generate new knowledge.
Memory is the faculty of the mind by which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved.
The pure memories given
To help our joy on earth, when earth is past,
Shall help our joy in heaven.
Margaret Junkin Preston, reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 407.
Die two months ago, and not forgotten yet? Then there's hope a great man's memory may outlive his life half a year.
William Shakespeare, Hamlet , c. 1601, Act III, scene 2, line 137.
All to myself I think of you,
Think of the things we used to do,
Think of the things we used to say,
Think of each happy bygone day.
Sometimes I sigh, and sometimes I smile,
But I keep each olden, golden while
All to myself.
Wilbur D. Nesbit, All to Myself.
