A good leg will fall; a straight back will stoop; a black beard will turn white; a curled pate will grow bald; a fair face will wither; a full eye will wax hollow: but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and the moon; or, rather, the sun, and not the moon; for it shines bright and never changes, but keeps his course truly.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) English dramatist and poet
Henry V, Act 5, sc. 2 [Henry] (1599)

Quoted by Walter Mondale as a eulogy for Hubert Humphrey.
