The art (?) of forgetting
Something I read recently put me in mind of a line from Elizabeth Bishop's poem "One Art." Though I didn't remember the poem's title (and wasn't entirely sure about the author either), I did remember the key line -- except for one crucial word. What I remembered was "the art of ... isn't hard to master." I had to look up the poem for the missing word. The line is, of course, "the art of losing isn't hard to master."
