Walter Scott Quote
Chivalry!-why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection-the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant-Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword.
Ch. 29, Ivanhoe explains to Rebecca the virtues of chivalry. - Ivanhoe (1819)
