„On parent knees, a naked new-born child,
Weeping thou sat'st while all around thee smiled;
So live, that sinking in thy last long sleep,
Calm thou mayst smile, while all around thee weep.“

—  William Jones Anglo-Welsh philologist and scholar of ancient India 1746 - 1794
From the Persian, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
