"I miss what I had in terms of the speed of memory access. If I needed
a word or a fact it was already at my fingertips and now it’s like an
arthritic and elderly gentleman has to sit up and go down many, many
flights of stairs very slowly and go and rummage in dusty drawers.
Eventually he will return four days later, normally at about 1.30 in
the morning, and I will sit up and go, “Oh yes! ‘Crepuscular.’ That
was the word I was looking for.”"

--Neil Gaiman
