What stays with you?

Mmm... grilled cheese sammich  with roasted tomato soup

I’ve never been in the habit of memorizing poems or literary passages, but the other day, a line from a Katherine Mansfield short story called “Bliss” popped into my head.

I haven’t read the story since high school, but I still remember what a guest says at the dinner party: “Why must it always be tomato soup?”

And then, “Tomato soup is so dreadfully eternal.”

Given how long ago it was, and how scatter-brained I am these days, I’m a bit surprised I can bring it to mind so precisely, though it’s true that it’s a memorable line.

What lines stay with you?
