Salman Rushdie on memory

From a New York Times article on déjà vécu:
Salman Rushdie once observed that memory has its "own special kind" of truth. It selects, eliminates, alters, exaggerates, minimizes, glorifies and vilifies also, he wrote in Midnight's Children, but in the end it creates its own reality, its heterogeneous but usually coherent version of events; and no sane human being ever trusts someone else's version more than his own.
