    Vain the ambition of kings
    Who seek by trophies and dead things,
    To leave a living name behind,
    And weave but nets to catch the wind.
    John Webster (1580–1625)

    Scatter these well-meant idioms
    Into the smoky spring that fills
    The suburbs, where they will be lost.
    They are no trophies of the sun.
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    I have made my bed
    In charnels and on coffins, where black death
    Keeps record of the trophies won
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
