Poem from the James Bond movie…Skyfall

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

M (Judi Dench) quotes a stirring passage from “Ulysses,” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

in the new James Bond movie, “Skyfall.”
