    Be stirring as the time; be fire with fire.
    Threaten the threat'ner, and outface the brow
    Of bragging horror. So shall inferior eyes,
    That borrow their behaviors from the great,
    Grow great by your example and put on
    The dauntless spirit of resolution.

Before the other how they ought to act;
While one alone, however prompt, resolves
More tardily and with a weaker will.
