The Eclectic One

…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

This is a special edition of QOTD In honor of those who gave their lives to save others on September 11, 2001

How sink the brave, who sink to rest,

By all their country’s wishes bless’d

By fairy hands their knell is rung,

By forms unseen their dirge is sung;

There Honor comes, a pilgrim gray,

To bless the turf that wraps their clay,

And Freedom shall awhile repair,

To dwell a weeping hermit there! -William Collins, Ode Written in the Year 1746
