The heights of exaltation

Egil grinned to himself as he watched the scattered remains of the jellies and spiders. Once again Kord had seen fit to reward his faith with battles to test his resolve and enemies to conquer. Noticing his comrade's uncertainty he turns to Vogir, his mind searching for an inspirational passage from the book of Kord. Then he remembers:

A coward believes he will ever live

if he keep him safe from strife:
but old age leaves him not long in peace
though spears may spare his life.

Surely the words of Kord will strengthen Vogir's resolve?

  1. A brave man isn't one who's completely fearless.
    That would be an idiot.
