Nearly all of these they feared; a very few they loved. The greatest was Woden.

"The British Government will not allow anyone going to the Fatherland to take more than a very few pounds just enough to get them where they want to go, and a mark or two over.

"See the German prince who is not ashamed to be a German! See our emperor in the uniform of the German infantry! Long live the emperor! Long live our fatherland!

You bore me for the good of Hellas not for your own joy only, mother! Shall men brave all for women and their fatherland? and shall one life, one little life, stand in their way? Nay! I give my self to Hellas! Slay me! pull down the towers of Troy!
