Don't make a memorandum

Storing up grievances is not only a waste of time, but a waste of life that could be lived to greater satisfaction. If I keep a ledger of oppressions and indignities, I'm only restoring them to painful reality.

This short exchange from Lewis Carroll's Through The Looking Glass sums it up:

"'The horror of that moment,' the King said, 'I shall never, never forget.'

"'You will though, if you don't make a memorandum of it.'"
