And though life’s path be full of pain
It’s through that path that Honor’s gained”.

“If you are to love you must see
First to that which all others need.

For love cannot live where it abides”.

“You must fight forever through your strife.
You must fight for love, fight for life.
You must fight for...

Won on the field in victory.

They now within my closet lie
Where they, after the game were hurled
But if given the choice then I
I would not trade them for the world.
