Eight Digits of Pi


How I wish I could recollect pi easily today

Each word in the sentence corresponds to the digits of pi. The number of letters in each word equals the value of each digit of pi.
This is an old classic, and because it mentions both pi and the goal to remember, it may be easier to remember than most mnemonic devices for remembering the digits of pi.
