Peace hath higher tests of manhood, than battle ever knew.
Youth is a blunder, Manhood a struggle, Old Age a regret.

Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
