The muffled drum�s sad roll has beat
The soldier�s last tattoo;
No more on life�s parade shall meet
The brave and daring few.
On Fame�s eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.

"Problems will always torment us because all important problems are insoluble: that is why they are important. The good comes from the continuing struggle to try and solve them, not from the vain hope of their solution."
