War's a brain spattering windpipe splitting art.

The king-times are fast finishing. There will be blood shed like water and tears like mist, but the peoples will conquer in the end. I shall not live to see it but I foresee it.

He pattered with his keys at a great rate / And sweated through his apostolic skin: / Of course his perspiration was but ichor / Or some such other spiritual liquor.

Sighing that Nature formed but one such man and broke the die.

Cool and quite English imperturbable.

Who tracks the steps of glory to the grave?
