"The time has come to _uplift our spirits_!"

Maybe language-change has once again left me in its dust, but I prefer
"... lift up our spirits!" Possibly, there was some interference from
the hackneyed phrase, "spiritual uplift." at work, here.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
