Leonard Cohen 1934-2016

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There's a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.


From "Anthem" by Leonard Cohen

If It Be Your Will

If it be your will that I speak no more
And my voice be still as it was before
I will speak no more, I will abide until
I am spoken for, if it be your will.

If it be your will that a voice be true
From this broken hill, I will sing to you
From this broken hill, all your praises they shall ring
If it be your will to let me sing.

From this broken hill, all your praises they shall ring
If it be your will to let me sing.

If it be your will, if there is a choice
Let the rivers fill, let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill on all these burning hearts in Hell
If it be your will to make us well

And draw us near, and bind us tight
All your children here in their rags of light
In our rags of light, all dressed to kill
And end this night, if it be your will, if it be your will

One of the hallmarks of freedom is that when you recognize someone is being intellectually dishonest or arguing with you in bad faith, you have the option to walk away without being punished, imprisoned or tortured.

Do you have a legend for this image? I can only identify about half of them.

It's British, so a lot of them I don't recognize either. And some are just plain obscure, imo even by British standards.
