Remembrance

  • Nothing is more consuming, or more illogical, than the desire for remembrance.

  • It is terrible how much has been forgotten, which is why, I suppose, remembering seems a holy thing.

  • But thou mayst grant this humble prayer, / Forget me not! forget me not!

  • Someone, I tell you / will remember us. / We are oppressed by / fears of oblivion.

    • Sappho,
    • "Someone, I Tell You" (6th c. BCE), in Willis Barnstone, ed., Sappho ()
  • You may forget but / Let me tell you / this: someone in / some future time / will think of us.

    • Sappho,
    • 6th c. BCE, in Mary Barnard, trans., Sappho: A New Translation ()
