"Indeed, nothing much else can ever happen if the 'stern' and the 'meek' fall into two mutually exclusive classes. And never forget that this is their natural condition. The man who combines both characters—the knight—is a work not of nature but of art; of that art which has human beings, instead of canvas or marble, for its medium."
—C. S. Lewis, in his essay "The Necessity of Chivalry"
( Living rightly does not come by accident, it must come from your hand. God, may I fully submit myself to be shaped in such a way.)
