A Quote by William Shakespeare on action, humility, imitation, modesty, peace, stillness, and war

In peace there's nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility: But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger; Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood. . . .

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
