How to Improve Memory, 1630

"Late Suppers, the too much use of Tobacco, meates that ingender grosse humors, too much woman, too much surfetting and costly fulnesse; all bad for Memory, ill for the purse, and worse for the health..." 
 William Basse, A Helpe to Memory and Discourse (1630) 
You heard it from William Basse: the grosse humors will really mess with your memory parts (for the record, that would be "in the backe part of the Braine").
