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. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...

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
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
