"We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."
- Tennyson's "Ulysses"
"Someday shall I pass beyond my fellow soldiers;
Respite from the battles they must continue to wage
In my stead. They shall not forget me.
True and noble are they, wielding wisdom against ignorance.
Though a day shall come when my blood slows and stops,
They remember always: my heart did never quit."
