To follow the DVD on Jan Hus I had bought a documentary on one of his followers: Jan Zizka. This was absolutely amazing — a fantastic story and history that I would highly recommend. The general who never lost a battle, the general who never faced a fair fight (best odds he faced was being outnumbered 2:1, he won being outnumbered 10:1 a few times), the general who’s army was mostly peasants but fought knights, the general who was blind in one eye, and then half-way through his career he was made totally blind by an arrow — and he carried on leading the troops and winning battles! What this man achieved is astounding, his integrity is astounding. A giant of a man.
Sayings of the wise
A voice had begun to sing.— C.S. Lewis, The Magician’s Nephew, Chapter 8, “The Fight at the Lamp-Post”
‘Gawd!’ said the Cabby. ‘Ain’t it lovely?’
`Glory be!’ said the Cabby. `I’d ha’ been a better man all my life if I’d known there were things like this’.
`’Old your noise, everyone,’ said the Cabby, `I want to listen to the moosic.’
