Why are you concerned with memorizing them? Write them out each time you use one, perhaps even write out each on a notecard. As they are used repeatedly, you will learn those of any lasting significance. Organize them into categories of common characteristics. Having ideas and themes of connected ideas is more important than being a trivia expert.
As far as simplyfying the process of learning, it takes time and effort, allow each new idea to soak in, revisit those that give you difficulty, enjoy the process.
