Stillness then Spirit…

“In peace, there’s nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness, and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger, stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood … now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide, hold hard the breath, and bend up every spirit to its full height!”

William Shakespeare (1564 to 1616), from ‘The Life of King Henry V’

Shakespeare was an English poet, dramatist, and actor, often called the English national poet and considered by many to be the greatest dramatist of all time.
