Quote of the Day

"If a man hath no freedom to fight for at home,
Let him combat for that of his neighbors,
Let him think of the glories of Greece and of Rome,
And get knocked on the head for his labors.
To do good for mankind is the chivalrous plan
And is always so nobly requited;
So battle for freedom wherever you can,
And if not shot or hanged, you'll get knighted."

(Poem by Byron, image from Dover)

I love that. It was also my favourite part of Breaker Morant. :)
