To all those that came back, and those that still shall.
And of course, those that will never....
"Turne ye to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope,
even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee:"
"Or fill high hawkfell of my hand,
with skalds reward for skilled word?"
~~~Egill Skallagrimssøn, c.974
"It shall rain for forty days and forty nights, until your vile odour is cleansed."
