1 Kings 20:22-23
And the prophet came to the king of Israel, and said to him, Go, strengthen yourself, and mark, and see what you do…
It is said of Pitt that "he breathed his own lofty spirit into his country. No man ever entered his room who did not feel himself a braver man when he came out than when he went in."
