“Begging your oppressors to spare you never works. You either fight back, or remind the ones you love there’s something still worth fighting for.” –  Farah Naz Rishi

“Founded on principles so pure, the order of Chivalry could not help but occasion a pleasing, though a romantic, development of the energies of human nature. But as in actual practice every institution becomes deteriorated and degraded, the devotion of the [chivalrous] knights often degenerated into superstition,—their love into licentiousness,—their spirit of loyalty or of freedom into tyranny and turmoil,—their generosity and gallantry into hare-brained madness and absurdity.”

Sir Walter Scott, “An Essay on Chivalry,” 1818
