Word of the Day: Memento

memento me-men-to / mə-mĕn-tō noun (plural mementos or mementoes) 1. a token as a reminder; a souvenir or keepsake I thought the pen had been a good pen and that it had done enough for me, and so, with the idea of keeping it for a sort of memento on which I could look later with tender eyes, I put it into my waistcoat pocket. From “Tales of Unrest” by Joseph Conrad, 1857 – 1924
