The main benefit obtained by preaching is by the impression made upon the mind at the time and not by an effect that arises afterwards by a remembrance of what was delivered.  And, though an after-remembrance of what was heard in a sermon is, oftentimes, very profitable, yet, for the most part, that remembrance is from an impression the words made on the heart at the time.  And the memory profits as it renews and increases that impression. – Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)
