For resolutions will not give your men
victory in battle, but those who with the help of arms conquer the enemy shall
win for you power and security to pass resolutions and to do what you will. For
in the field you ought to be terrible, but in the courts sympathetic.
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
