which is kindled by the heat of the fight,
and it is the function of the general not to quench but to heighten the excitement.
There is sound sense in the ancient practice of sounding trumpet blasts on all sides
and raising a battle cry from all throats;

and to heighten the ardor of one's own men."
Gaius Julius Caesar (100-44 BC)
The Gallic War
"I thank all for the advice which you have given me.
