Rightly to be great
Is not to stir without great argument,
But greatly to find quarrel in a straw
When honor's at the stake.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Hamlet, in Hamlet, act 4, sc. 4, l. 53-6.
True greatness consists not in fighting for any trivial cause, unless honor is involved, when it is noble to act.
