The Most Beautiful Phrase in the English Language

What is it? What do you think is the most beautiful phrase in English? For me, it is this one:

There but for the grace of God, go I.

Nobody’s sure who said it, but it’s most often attributed to evangelical preacher John Bradford (who was burned at the stake in 1555.)

What about you? What’s your favorite quote or idiom? You can include translations of phrases from other languages, if you like. There’s no prize here.
