—  Al-Mutanabbi
Context: When the lion bares his teeth, do not fancy that the lion shows to you a smile. I have slain the man that sought my heart's blood many a time, Riding a noble mare whose back none else may climb, Whose hind and fore-legs seem in galloping as one, Nor hand nor foot requireth she to urge her on. And O the days when I have swung my fine-edged glaive Amidst a sea of death where wave was dashed on wave! The desert knows me well, the night, the mounted men The battle and the sword, the paper and the pen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O04oUcNXmdI

„He asks from men all that he has in himself, though even lions would not claim to match that.“
