Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

The late, great Nat King Cole:
Compare with Depeche Mode:
Nat is like a Mauser bolt action: smooth as silk and the ultimate in class. Depeche Mode is more like an FAL, industrial with a hint of menace. Both represent the best of their day.
