„Also by the way, I have found a title for this book. From Here to Eternity.“

—  James Jones, To Reach Eternity (1989), Context: Also by the way, I have found a title for this book. From Here to Eternity. Taken from the "Whiffenpoof" song, of Yale drinking fame. It goes: "We are little black sheep who have gone astray, baa... baa... baa. Gentlemen songsters out on a spree, damned from here to eternity. God have mercy on such as we. Baa, etc." Maybe it's maudlin, but so am I. I get chills every time I sing it, even when sober. Letter to Maxwell Perkins (21 October 1946); p. 80
