Fight the good fight.


I’ll fight till from my bones my flesh be hacked.


  • The combat deepens. On, ye brave,
  • Who rush to glory, or the grave!
  • Campbell.

  • Those who in quarrels interpose,
  • Must often wipe a bloody nose.
  • Gay.

  • For those that fly may fight again,
  • Which he can never do that’s slain.
  • Butler.

  • He who fights and runs away,
  • May live to fight another day;
  • But he who is in battle slain
  • Can never rise and fight again.
  • Goldsmith.
