J.P. Richter once said “The test of an enjoyment is the remembrance which it leaves behind.” Are our memories a testament to the enjoyments we have experienced?

Often I think we tend to remember the bad experiences we encounter and fail to relish and remember the good experiences.  According to Richter, that would mean that we aren’t really enjoying life.  Our search for all the wealth or esteem or possessions in this world will never bring us happiness; will never give us memories of enjoyment.

What are our most prominent memories?  Are they ones that recall for us the grace of enjoyment?
