„So raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways,
All my underdogs.
We will never be, never be anything but loud
And "Nitty-Gritty",
Dirty little freaks.
Won't you come and come and
Raise your glass!
Just come on and come on and
Raise your glass.“

„Even such is time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with age and dust;
Who in the dark and silent grave,
When we have wandered all our ways,
Shuts up the story of our days.
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust!“

—  Walter Raleigh English aristocrat, writer, poet, soldier, courtier, spy, and explorer 1554 - 1618

His Own Epitaph, written the night before his execution (1618) and found in his Bible in the Gate-house at Westminster; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
