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

Duke Ellington - Autumn Leaves
This is my favorite version of this song. Everyone has recorded this (including Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins, and Diana Krall), but this one stands out in the crowd.
