‘Forgetfulness too is provocative of anger, even, for instance, forgetting your friend's name, though it be (shewn) in such a mere trifle: for even forgetfulness (trifle though it be, καί) is construed as a sign of contempt: because this oblivion is due to neglect, and neglect is slight’. Falconbridge, in King John, Act I, sc. 1. 187, And if his name be George, I'll call him Peter; For new-made honour doth forget men's names.
