From the table of my memory
I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act I. Scene 5.
No, Doctor, I have no command of my memory; it only retains what happens to hit my fancy; and like enough, sir, if you were to preach to me for a couple of hours on end, I might be unable at the close of the discourse to remember one word of it.
        Scott.—Intro. to Ann of Geierstein.
I pleas’d remember, and while mem’ry yet
Holds fast her office here, can ne’er forget.
O! while all conscious memory holds her power,
Can I forget that sweetly painful hour.
        Falconer.—Shipwreck, Canto I.
Remember thee?
Ay, thou poor ghost, while memory holds a seat
In this distracted globe.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act I. Scene 5.
