...forgets nothing.

And what did contemporaries think of the tragic hero? That he was great, they looked up to him… But he who loves God has no need of tears, needs no admiration, and forgets his suffering in love, indeed forgets so completely that afterwards not the least hint of his pain would remain were God himself not to remember it; for God sees in secret and knows the distress and counts the tears and forgets nothing. 

From Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard
