Your passphrase is the last bastion of your key. Your secret key are
protected with this string. If you forget it, you are in the same
situation that an eavesdroper.

Without your secret key, or access to it, you cannot revoke it. I always
advise to generate a generic revoke cert, and save it (like in paper);
but normally i will forget where i save it.

You nonsingle you have lose your access to the secret, you lose access
to all the messeges encrypted for you with this key.
