And what's that-a boy or a man?"
He laughed. "A boy in time of peace and a man in time of war.“

„There’s a good time coming, boys!
A good time coming.“

—  Charles Mackay British writer 1814 - 1889

"The Good Time Coming".
Voices from the Crowd, and Town Lyrics (1857)
Contexto: There’s a good time coming, boys!
A good time coming.
We may not live to see the day,
But earth shall glisten in the ray
Of the good time coming.
Cannon-balls may aid the truth
But thought’s a weapon stronger;
We’ll win our battles by its aid,
Wait a little longer.
