Did It My Way has one that could have come down from Shakespeare, or Virgil, or Homer, about a man he knows who's lost everything but his self respect:
He never asked for charity, worked every day, and only asked for something I threw away. To the best of my knowledge he does not drink,smoke, nor stand on a street corner begging with a cardboard sign.To bend - but not break - under pressure that would destroy another man. That's a man who's earned our respect. RTWT.
But for the grace of God go I.
