“But swords I smile at, weapons laugh to scorn,
Brandish’d by man that’s of a woman born.”
- Macbeth, Act V., Scene vii.

"There are, if I may so say, three powerful spirits, which have from time to time, moved on the face of the waters, and given a predominant impulse to the moral sentiments and energies of mankind. These are the spirits of liberty, of religion, and of honor." —HALLAM, Europe in the Middle Ages.

Gold is for the mistress, silver for the maid, copper for the craftsman
cunning at his trade. "Good!" said the Baron, sitting in his hall, "But
iron, cold iron, is master of them all." - Rudyard Kipling
