Emotions are great servants but poor masters
Kajana Cetshwayo
Cetshwayo, sensing there were vast numbers of men absent, asked where the rest of his regiments were.

Instead, he called for a time of mourning and is quoted as saying, “A spear has been thrust into the belly of our nation…there are not enough tears to mourn the dead.
