Honor to those who in the life they lead define and guard a Thermopylae, Never betraying what is right, consistent and just in all they do but showing pity also, and compassion; generous when they’re rich, an when they’re poor, still generous is small ways, still helping as much as they can; always speaking the truth, yet without hating those who lie.And even more honor is due to them when they foresee (as many do foresee ) that Ephialtis wil turn up in the end, that the Medes will break through after all.
