Chivalry - A Timeless Goal

CERTAINLY THE MORE men reflect upon the noble and joyous images presented in heroic history the more they will feel themselves confirmed in all those holy feelings which only can give them dignity and security. The more they think of these things the more they will become persuaded that the principles which those examples illustrate and recommend are the most important that can be made the subject of their study. And so they will see that they can be happy and honourable, can obtain the blessing of God Almighty for themselves, for their country, and for mankind, only in proportion as they adhere to those principles.
