When we teach men to perfect their masculinity through the discipline of chivalry, two kinds of men result.  The most spirited accept the discipline and become knights, but the least spirited refuse the discipline and become cads.

Impatient with such failures, our age pursues a different ideal.  Instead of encouraging men to become knights, it discourages them from becoming men at all.  But this works no better; in fact it works worse.  Again two kinds of men result, but the pattern is different.  The most spirited reject the discipline and become cads, and the least spirited accept it and become poltroons.

Thank God for saints and exceptions.
