Medieval Quote

The shield is given to the knight to signify the office of a knight, for likewise as a knight puts his shield in between himself and his enemy, right so the knight is in the middle between the prince and the people. And as the stroke that falls upon the shield saves the knight, right so the knight ought to call himself out and present his body to his lord when his lord is in peril of being hurt or taken.

- Ramon Lull, Book of Knighthood and Chivalry
