Scilurus on his death-bed, being about to leave four-score sons surviving, offered a bundle of darts to each of them, and bade them break them.

Seven Watchmen sitting in a tower, Watching what had come upon Mankind, Showed the Man the Glory and the Power And bade him shape the Kingdom to his mind. . . . . . . That a man's mind is wont to tell him more Than Seven Watchmen sitting in a tower.rudyard kipling
