“You are well aware that it is not numbers or strength that bring the victories in war. No, it is when one side goes against the enemy with the gods’ gift of a stronger morale that their adversaries, as a rule, cannot withstand them.” (Xenophon, The Persian Expedition)
I thought about this tonight – and while I am not sure whether it can be applied to the German team winning against Italy in the European Soccer Championships after the mother of all penalty shootouts, I am sure that this can be applied to the Dreamboaters.
It’s about the Gods’ gift of a stronger morale. Not numbers. Not strength.
Eventually, we will win. Because we are right.
