9781331811206: Three Orations (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Three Orations

Where Norsemen came, there valor, strength and victory did follow in their wake, but also death to enemies.

As mountain stream of Norway's land hurls foam of spray down wildest dance of cataract, so these old heroes of a hardy race, in wildest dance of warlike deeds struck terror to the human heart, where Norway's ships were sighted.

This was our Norway's summer day, the day of life and daring Viking's deeds.

But night must come.

It came - a long and dreary night, - as only you will find in lands of midnight sun.

A winter's night, with months for hours of its dark and dreary desolation.

Storm clouds, black and blasting, swept the land.

With chains of serfdom on their wrists the men of Norway lay for years - for nearly four times hundred years - at feet of Danish kings, who ruled and ruined men and land with iron rod.

In thraldom free ideas cannot thrive. The eye grows dull, the brain innocuous, and will of man becomes a muscle merely.

And some fine day, if long enough it last - this blasting tyranny, dead is each deed-creating faculty. The spark in human heart, by heaven lent to man, goes out, as fire goes out in flow of water.

The serf becomes an animal with no desire but that of animals.
