„While you've a lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that's the style.
What's the use of worrying?
It never was worth while, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.“
— George Henry Powell songwriter 1880 - 1951
Song Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag (1915).

„I think of the chimp, the one with the talking hands. In the course of the experiment, that chimp had a baby. Imagine how her trainers must have thrilled when the mother, without prompting, began to sign her newborn. Baby, drink milk. Baby, play ball. And when the baby died, the mother stood over the body, her wrinkled hands moving with animal grace, forming again and again the words: Baby, come hug, Baby come hug, fluent now in the language of grief.“

I have to smile myself.

And when you give me that pretty little pout,
It turns me inside out.
There's something about you, baby“
