James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Macedonius
 
  Memory, and thou, Forgetfulness, not yet / Your powers in happy harmony I find; / One oft recalls what I would fain forget, / And one blots out what I would bear in mind.  1
  Memory, of all things good remind us still: / Forgetfulness, obliterate all that’s ill.  2
  Stranger or countryman to me / Welcome alike shall ever be. / To ask of any guest his name, / Or whose he is, or whence he came, / I hold can never be his part / Who owns a hospitable heart.  3
