    all you remember of the party is him; to recall / recollect something from ........

    Hello again!

    I think that "recall" and "recollect" can be used with the preposition "from" to mean "bring back a piece of information into your mind".

    I recall someone by that name from my days at the university. Mary recalled the appropriate fact from her history studies.

    Words I recollect from my days in the rag trade.

    Is it possible to say "all you remember of the party is him" instead of "all you remember FROM the party is him"? I have remembered this sentence for a long time.

    What about this example:

    If you remember people or events from the past, your mind still has an impression of them and you are able to think about them.

    Thank you.

    Please somebody help me.
