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 saddest Valentine's Day ever
Teddy Roosevelt's diary, February 14, 1884:
His wife, Alice, died two days after giving birth to their daughter. May you have a much nicer day, and remember those who don't.
