The horror of memoranda

The King was saying, 'I assure you, my dear, I turned cold to the very end of my whiskers!'
To which the Queen replied, 'You haven't got any whiskers.'
'The horror of that moment,' the King went on, 'I shall never, never forget!'
'You will, though,' the Queen said, 'if you don't make a memorandum of it.'

(Through the Looking-Glass, Lewis Carroll, 1871)
