Number two is the story of Isidasi Theri

Here's a link to the story:

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta

Greetings,

And the first one is...

SN 20.7: Ani Sutta
http://www.mahindarama.com/e-tipitaka/s ... sn20-7.htm

As for "how to search" I used Google Saffron and searched for works of poets. Sometimes putting things in quotation marks can be useful if you're looking for a particular string of words. For search tips usable in Google and Google Saffron, see: http://www.google.com/support/websearch ... wer=136861

Metta,
Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)

I see the suttas are already covered, so maybe I can be of some help with the memory issues.

Dual N-Back is a free brain game you can play that will help increase working memory. I highly recommend it.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C. S. Lewis

There is also a thread called going mental which may interest you on the memory side of your question. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3183&view=unread#unread
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
