Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Be strong: we are not here to play, to dream, to drift, we have hard work to do and loads to lift, shun not the struggle, face it, ‘tis god’s gift. Be strong: say not the days are evil - who’s to blame! And fold your hands and acquiesce - o shame! Stand up, speak out, and bravely in god’s name. Be strong! It matters not how deep entrenched the wrong. How hard the battle goes, the day, how long! Faint not, fight on! Tomorrow comes the song.

Is where he dies for man!
