Below the bust of Cecil John Rhodes at Rhodes Memorial are written the following words, without an acknowledgement to the poet. While the city of Cape Town has changed vastly since the time he was alive, these words symbolise what so many feel about this beautiful country we are living in. 

The immense and brooding spirit
Shall quicken and control
Living he was the land and dead
His soul shall be her soul.
