"For myself, I made up my mind long ago that neither an army nor a commander can avoid danger by running away. So - although an honorable death would be better than a disgraceful attempt to save our lives - our best chance of safety does in fact lie in doing our duty."
Agricola, Just before a battle at the foot of Mount Graupius, Britannia, as related by Son-in-law Tacitus
"If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." -Benjamin Franklin
