    Do we really need to memorize all of them?

    from what ive seen, you dont need to memorize all of them...

    it seems that your holistic understanding of the principles of ochem will allow you to predict what will happen in new or complex reactions.

    this is kind of a basic question.

    Does the lone pair on the oxygen in an ester resonate into the carbonyl? What about the lone pair on nitrogen in amide?

    yes to both questions, this is why those two COOH derivatives are so stable
