Peace courts his hand, but spreads her charms in vain; "Think nothing gain'd," he cries, "till naught remain."
When true simplicity is gain'd To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd, To turn, turn will be our delight 'Till by turning, turning we come round right.
Statesman, yet friend to truth; of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear; Who broke no promise, serv'd no private end, Who gain'd no title, and who lost no friend; Ennobled by himself, by all approv'd, And prais'd, unenvy'd, by the Muse he lov'd.Alexander Pope
For this is England's greatest son, He that gain'd a hundred fights, And never lost an English gun.Alfred Tennyson
