Memoir is a mythical nonfiction genre. More particularly, it is a set of memories that a person writes about events or moments, both public and private that took place in the author’s life. The declarations made in the work are understood to be truthful. While memoir has previously been defined as a subcategory of autobiography since the late 20th century, the genre is distinguished in form, presenting a narrowed focus. Like most autobiographies, memoirs are written from the first-person opinion. An autobiography tells the story of a life, while memoir narrates a story from a life, such as touchstone events and turning points from the author’s life. The author of a memoir may be mentioned as a memoirist.

Morality (from the Latin moralitas "manner, character, proper behavior") is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are "good" (or right) and those that are "bad" (or wrong). The philosophy of morality is ethics. A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.) and a moral is any one practice or teaching within a moral code. Morality may also be specifically synonymous with "goodness" or "rightness." Immorality is the active opposition to morality (i.e. opposition to that which is good or right), while amorality is variously defined as an unawareness of, indifference toward, or disbelief in any set of moral standards or principles. An example of a moral code is the Golden Rule which states that, "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself."
