_Zebulon and Naphtali were a people that jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field_.–JUDGES v. 18.
Though Love repine, and Reason chafe, There came a voice without reply,– ‘Tis man’s perdition to be safe, When for the truth he ought to die.
R. W. EMERSON.
Some say that the age of chivalry is past. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth, or a man or woman left to say, “I will redress that wrong, or spend my life in the attempt.” The age of chivalry is never past, so long as we have faith enough to say, “God will help me to redress that wrong; or, if not me, He will help those that come after me, for His eternal Will is to overcome evil with good.”
C. KINGSLEY.
Thus man is made equal to every event. He can face danger for the right. A poor, tender, painful body, he can run into flame or bullets or pestilence, with duty for his guide.
R. W. EMERSON.
