“Do you know what Agelisas said, when he was asked why the great city of Lacedomonie was not girded with walls? Because, pointing out the inhabitants and citizens of the city, so expert in military discipline and so strong and well armed: Here, he said, are the walls of the city, meaning that there is no wall but of bones, and that towns and cities can have no more secure nor stronger wall than the virtue of their citizens and inhabitants.”
—François Rabelais (14941553)
“There are those who never burn incense when things are going well, but then throw themselves at the Buddhas feet when crises come.”
