What does it mean to memorise?
In psychology, memory is an organism’s ability to obtain, store, retain and subsequently retrieve information. The act of memorization is a deliberate mental process undertaken in order to store in memory for later recall. Memory is the treasure of the mind: Proverbs 2:1, Proverbs 3:1-2, Psalm 119: 4, 9, 11, 18, 27, 103.
