Of alle chevalry to chose, the chef thyng alosed Is the lel layk of
luf, the lettrure of armes. Choosing from all
chivalrous actions, the chief things to praise Are the loyal sport
of love and the lore of arms. Anonymous c.1370 Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, l.1512^3.
There is nothing so bad or so good that you will not find Englishmen doing
it; but you will never find an Englishman in the
wrong. He does everything on principle. He
fights you on patriotic principles; he robs you on business
principles; he enslaves you on imperial principles; he
bullies you on manly principles; he supportshiskingon
loyal principles and cuts off hishead on republican
principles. George Bernard Shaw The Man of Destiny.
