|1.||Thought and Memory|
The names of Odin's two ravens. Odin kept himself informed about the affairs of the nine worlds with two faithful ravens, Thought and Memory. He sends them out at dawn to gather information and return in the evening. They perch on the God's shoulders and whisper every scrap of news which they saw or heard tell of into His ears.
"The whole world wide, every day,
Fly Thought and Memory;
I worry lest Thought should fall in flight,
Yet more I fear for Memory."-Grimnismal
"We I see a pair of ravens, I smile and say hello to Thought and Memory."
|2.||Thought and Memory|
1. A pair of supernatural ravens that served the Norse god, Odin.
2. The names of the quirky narrators in the Australian play "The Living End". The pair judge souls that travel through purgatory. They are notable for their cynicism and flamboyance.
Thought and Memory fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Thought, that he come not back,
yet more anxious am I for Memory.
The Judge: Thought! Memory!
Memory: Oh, that's us!
Thought: Quickly, quickly now. How do I look?
Memory: Fantastic. I think I lost a button.
Thought: Don't worry about it. Seven sins! Seven! We haven't had seven since..oh, 1917!
(They face the audience)
Memory: All right, ready?
Thought: 3, 2, 1
Memory: And smile
Thought: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to purgatory! The weather is fine, the women are beautiful.
