The song birds are the sweetest In Kentucky; The thoroughbreds are fleetest In Kentucky; Mountains tower proudest, Thunder peals the loudest, The landscape is the grandest And politics the damnedest In Kentucky.
The fairest things have fleetest end: Their scent survives their close, But the rose's scent is bitterness To him that loved the rose!Francis Thompson
All that's bright must fade, The brightest still the fleetest; All that's sweet was made But to be lost when sweetest.thomas moore
