"Chivalry!---why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection---the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant ---Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword." ~ Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott "What remains?" cried Ivanhoe; "Glory, maiden, glory! which gilds our sepulchre and embalms our name." ~ Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott "Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once." ~ Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare "My daughter, there are times of moral danger when the hardest virtuous resolution to form is flight, and when the most heroic bravery is flight." ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens The future was with Fate. The present was our own. ~ The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Adventurer" -- he that goes out to meet whatever may come. Well, that is what we all do in the world one way or another. ~ Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard Indeed, it may be laid down as a general principle, that the more extended the ancestry, the greater the amount of violence and vagabondism; for in ancient days those two amusements, combining a wholesome excitement with a promising means of repairing shattered fortunes, were at once the ennobling pursuit and the healthful recreation of the Quality of this land. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "Fifteen men on the dead man's chest -- Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!" ~ Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson "Let them be brought to the house of 'She-who-must-be-obeyed'. Bring forth the men, and let that which they have with them be brought forth also." ~ She by H. Rider Haggard The sky aft was dark as pitch, but the moon still shone brightly ahead of us and lit up the blackness. Beneath its sheen a huge white-topped breaker, twenty feet high or more, was rushing on to us. It was on the break--the moon shone on its crest and tipped its foam with light. On it rushed beneath the inky sky, driven by the awful squall behind it. ~ She by H. Rider Haggard
