Greetings we win!

Joy to you, we’ve won — Pheidippides (Greek: Φειδιππίδης) Pheidippides ran from Marathon to Athens to bring news of the Athenian victory over the Persians. Also quoted as Greetings, we win. The story of his run inspired the modern day Marathon. By Christophe Meneboeuf [CC BY-SA 3.0], via Wikimedia Commons

put no trust in the morrow!
