What goes up must come down.
~ English Proverb, American [19283]

This proverb serves as the opening line, and recurring theme in Blood, Sweat and Tear's 1968 classic, Spinning Wheels:

The band's name came from a variation of the famous phrase, "blood, toil, tears and sweat," which was originally spoken by Giuseepe Garibaldi in Rome in 1849. Theordore Roosevelt repeated it in a speech in 1897. But it was Winston Churchill, at the start of World War II, who made the words famous.

"I would say to the House as I said to those who have joined this government: I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat."
